Whisky Reviews for Deanston 2008

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points

  1. YD84 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The sherry notes are there in the form of milk chocolate, nuts, raisins and baking spices, but there is something savoury in there too along with oranges, wet leaves, sponge cake, salted caramel and maltiness. Maybe even some pears. A touch of mustiness as well. Yes, this is absolutely delightful.

    Gooseberries and currants, especially on the nose.
    But also a bit alcoholic.
    The taste is then nice and sweet, but the alcohol then pushes you further.

    Very on the Oloroso side. Woody, dry, lots of spice. I think this bottling could polarize a bit. It's a little too much sherry for me, not enough whisky. If you understand what i mean. But quite drinkable, a slightly different style than the many overloaded sweet bottlings.
