    • Nose
      84 84
      Elegant, balanced and slightly smoky.
      A mixture of nuts, marzipan and burnt cream.
      Behind it a very light plume of wood smoke and something like balsa wood.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Much stronger and spicier than the nose suggests.
      Winter spices, pepper, a bit earthy and cold smoke. Very slightly bitter note, maybe like some burnt caramel.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium length, spicy and dry.
      After the spices and oak, there is some black espresso. I miss the honey that is Deanston typical for me.

    The very first impression was very positive. With more calm and air, this curious Deanston unfolds for me into a perfectly balanced, self-assured gentleman, where the distillery character (hay and herbal honey sweetness) also comes into its own. A top malt for me!

    I also find it strikingly polished and better integrated than the other Deanstons I've tried so far.

      Aromatic and balanced. Dried grass. Straw. Yeast danish with persipan. Nut. Perhaps a little roasted and smoky barley (supposedly a peaty Deanston). Very round. Parchment paper. A hint of allspice or nutmeg. Fine vanilla-caramel honey note. With more air, the Persipan stands out much more. Also some fruit (juchu!) - coming from the Persipan for me, this is apricot. He also has something very slightly dirty, I associate that from straw.

      Soft. Full-bodied. Perfectly integrated alcohol! Oak wort. Nutmeg. Oily. Warming - some peppery fire, but without any sharpness. Vanilla.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Substantial and creamy. Roasted pine nuts. A bit herbal herbaceous. Full-bodied sweetness. Oak wort. A lot of depth. Great mouthfeel.
