  1. hs305 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    [October, 2019] I never rated a Deanston above 88 points and I doubt this release can change that legacy...

    ...no, it can not. A typical unimpressive Deanston that is not bad - it is just ... boring. Easy to drink when focussing on other things.
    • Nose
      82 82
      The colour is jonquiripe corn and the nose offers the characteristic bready-malty Deanston profile that is ... very simple. No off-note in there but nothing of interest either. After some breathing shy floral notes and some spices show up.
    • Taste
      83 83
      The taste is about the same - malty-sugary driven with some autumn floral and waxy impressions. Very simple and without any flaw but in the same way ... boring. What else to say? Nothing.
    • Finish
      81 81
      The dram arrives warming and coating on the palate without distracting moments. The finish is of medium length and turns a little bitter-astringent (tannins at work). Water releases earthy aromas in the nose and turns both taste and finish sweeter (but just on barley sugars). I like this dram best a little reduced.

  3. Allandale scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A light to medium body. Nothing special.
    • Nose
      Linseed oil,grass,cereal grain, barley sugar. Some Sherry notes come by.
    • Taste
      Cereal grain, more emphatically nutty, slightly creamy.
    • Finish
      Nutty and appetizing. I miss something.

    Colour: Amber

    Nose: Wood comes through strongest, then some malty notes and a hint of citrus, acid.

    Taste: Wow...one of the most woody whiskies I have tasted. Malt becomes a bit more pronounced and acid/citrus is pushed back a bit. The sweeter nuts like cashew?

    Finish: A rather long finish.. Nose, taste and finish remarkably consistent. What you smell is what you get.

    Bottle: nothing special
