  1. AgentMunky scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    aged in Muscat for almost 3 years, remainder in ex-bourbon barrels.
    • Nose

      6.5 // 6.5

      Fruit leather, soft nose, whiff of something heavily oxidized.
    • Taste

      8.5 // 8.5

      Wow! Explosion of flavor, super fruity, subtle wine, very mellow. Grapes and honey.
    • Finish

      8 // 8.5

      Smooth, mellow finish that accentuates the muscat influence.

  2. DenverbroncosDuke scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The roundest and best Deanston of my life and I have had many. Outstanding but unfortunately also expensive ....
    • Nose
      89 89
      Dark fruits, not quite as sweet as expected, grapes, delicate floral notes.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Very creamy and elegant, wonderfully soft, dried fruit, sweet wine.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Continuing seamlessly with the taste from a single source, classic grape notes.

  6. man2392 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose - dessert wine, washing-up liquid, marcona almonds, golden raisins. Maple syrup

    Palate- Honeyed feta, cheesy with a hint of salt, Savoury yeast

    Finish- creamy and white grapejuice. Hovis digestive cheese biscuits

  7. rampah scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Shy and subtle. The age doesn't reveal itself, tastes more like a 20yo bottling imho.

    But delicious nevertheless, unfortunately quite expensive (~320€).
