  1. SushiCZ scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: Quite a pleasant apple taste. A simple, slightly sour scent, basically nothing I wouldn't have before or need in the future.

    Taste: Whatever it gets from wine (Madeira), I don't like. And the influence is great here. There is a smell of alcohol, brandy. The bourbon part is good - vanilla, caramel. As a whole nothing extra.

    Finish: Sweet fruity finish, nothing extra spicy, nothing extra interesting.

    Overall: I'm honestly disappointed, I like the distillery, but this is not enough. After all, the Deanston 12 core is great! There are unpleasant tones of fruit and alcohol and it is saved by the classic tones of bourbon. I'm really not interested in going back to this whisky. Sorry guys.

    After a very interesting aroma, a steep peak in alcohol. M-yes. It tastes like a new make-up.

      Oak, vanilla, mineral, the base is noticeable (the effect of the barrel is minimal), salt dough, fresh herbs, cookies, white dessert grapes, cranberries in sugar glaze, milk toffee, wax, baked apple, light sulfur. Quiet, calm, background, beautiful aroma.
    • Taste
      74 74
      Malt, alcohol (vodka), a hint of candied orange peel.
    • Finish
      73 73
      Alcohol bitterness, malt, the same citrus peels, extremely empty, short.

  5. Defeatless scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Price quality wise this is ok. But this isnt a very good introduction to their new line.....
    It is a good whisky to enjoy with a light cigar, or as a easy non complex dram.
    • Nose

      Sweet, green apple, cooked apple, some white wine. A little sour not in the background. Also something which I tend to find often in Deanston I can best describe it as dusty.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet, fruity, apple and pears. Little bitter note but not much. Not much depth either, just tasty.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Short-medium length. Here comes the Madeira influence, a little white wine and some corn syrup.

  6. fnk scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Such a rich aroma, but I don't quite like this wine barrel, with its sweetness ...

      Dirty, somewhat beer-like mash. Apple, salted caramel and pecan.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Malt, almond, apple, salted caramel, pecan, chocolate and honey. Water makes it bitter.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Malt, pecan, orange, white chocolate and honey.

  13. Whiskybayer scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Price / offer: Very good. Apple, malt and honey. A surprisingly long finish with ginger. Somewhat reminds me of Glenfiddich 19 Madeira. Is presentable. With the second sip, the Deanston looks a bit fruity and the sharpness decreases.

  15. Allandale scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    From Cadenhead: A well balanced cask make-up, some sweetness and a long finish make for a interesting dram.
    • Nose
      Apple skin, green tomatoes, stewed fruits.
    • Taste
      Malty. Rye bread, freshly baked cake.
    • Finish
      Long finish with sour grape candy and ice gems.
