Whisky reviews for Deanston 2009 VM

2 users have left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 83.00 points.

  1. glen efze did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A Deanston from Cooper's Choice, finished in port cask. The color is strong golden, a slightly reddish tinge could be present.

    • Nose
      Something musty comes up in the nose when you smell it for the first time, rather dry musty than damp. Old herbs? Behind are blackberries and cherries, but the dry herbs cannot be driven from the nose.
    • Taste
      Unfortunately, the old herbs are also present in taste, but they are also in a musty box. The alcohol is 51% vol. slightly burning and there is not enough fruit. Overall, the whisky develops very dry. There's a hint of a few sweet cherries and blackberries, but it doesn't hold up against old wood.
    • Finish
      Unfortunately, the moldy cardboard remains on the palate in the aftertaste.

      Before filling, the cask lay around somewhere too long and rotted away - at least that's the impression the whisky leaves on me. It may be that sulfur is also involved, but even that is lost in the aftertaste of cellar mustiness and used wood. I do not like it.
