  1. Macallan1968 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Good PX Sherry Whisky from Deanston! Full fruit, rich PX sherry and the alcohol is well integrated! The barrel was a good choice from The Maltman.
    Of course, price-performance also plays a role in the rating - let's put it this way, if the bottle had a different name, we would be at a completely different price :-) Liked, tasted and just right for in between.

    After quite some "bad" deanston releases, I liked this a lot.
    Okay, might have been the company I tasted this with (first whisky meetup after corona...).
    Sadly this does barely have the lovage notes ("Liebstöckl") that come with the original 10 PX Finish from the distillery.

    Short finish, but clean in the nose, delivery and mouth.
    I really liked it, was one of the better drams of that day.

    Due to the finish not quite such a brute sherry bomb. Pleasant, but also interchangeable. nothing special.

    • Nose
      Without water: caramel to forest honey with a lot of fresh acidity from grapes and a meaty note (lovage). Herbal notes and mint. Something closed.

      With water: sweeter and darker. Dried fruits. Forest honey. Clear vanilla and barrel flavor. Leathery.
    • Taste
      Without water: strong sherry fruitiness with a lot of acidity and honey sweetness. Astringent. Wood wort. Very well integrated alcohol.

      With water: sweet at the beginning. Light dried fruits, then becoming more and more sour and dry. Spicy and very dry.
    • Finish
      Without water: acidity and sweetness and flavor, becoming quite dry. Light tobacco notes.

      With water: strongly spicy and very dry. Tobacco and leather again.

  6. Bernando04 scored this whisky 92 points Newbie

    Mega PX Sherry taste, younger and edgier than the Maltman Deanston 21 but sweeter and more intense ... for about 80 Eur absolutely top whisky ... color for 10 years hammer ... much darker than the 21 he is probably first fill. ..a must in every whisky collection
    • Nose
      Dried fruits PX Sherry Caramel
    • Taste
      Thanks to 55.1%, the nose is very full and intense with prunes / almonds / oak
    • Finish
      Long lasting, intense taste ... dark ... sherry oak taste ... a dream for the price

    Just a very good sherried whisky, no surprise, what you see and expect is what you get.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Strong alcohol, red fruits, berries, forest fruits, intense nose.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Intense, strong, fruity, red fruits, berries, some chocolate and honey as well now.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still pretty strong, full and fruity, red fruits, pretty long finish.

  16. 67conrad67 scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Odor: average Bouquet, fresh basic tone, according to mothballs in the base, according to throaty, minty, differentiated
    Taste: fine, sweet melting, according to astringent, wood present, alcohol well integrated, strongly pushing
    Color: copper, medium WR, of course
    Conclusion: character actor who does not prostitute the sherry in front of him, not for every day, but very interesting because of the minty eucalyptus note in connection with the sherry sweetness

  27. etwa77 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    dreams of coffee, cream and vanilla sipped through a straw made of velour.. aristocratic and earthy at the same time, perfumed and herbal.. not very sweet and just about the right amount of dry.. not sure if the finish is actually short, or is it that I just don t want it to finish.. although at quite a high abv, I wished it kicked stronger.. thinking about an a’Bundah, but dipped to its knees in herbal medicine.. or a sherried Tobermory, only more civilized.

  31. MickMatrix scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Deanston and Px-barrel seems to be working. Not just cute. There is more to it.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Sweet and powerful. Raisins, dried plums. Behind it milk chocolate, grape-nut. Behind it a little more fruit and something like wet leaves.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Nutty with dark fruits. Grapes and ripe plums. Dates. Very light white pepper. Cinnamon and sugar. The barrel brings in a slightly dusty and earthy note. Some bitterness. Varied and intense.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Dates describe it best to me. Medium length. But here it becomes more common.
