  1. mothers_finest scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nice Ex Hogshead Deanston with lots of caramel! Very smooth despite of the 55%vol abv.

  2. DerDennis! scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    He does not work for me without water, a maximum of 81 points. With a good shot of water it gets better, there are peppermint notes, which I have often found in Deanston, and creaminess and sweetness.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Cereals, bright fruits ... Pears, spicy, nutty, nutmeg, noticeable alcohol, with water the alcohol disappears, rich mint and some pepper are added
    • Taste
      84 84
      hot, pepper, light sweetness, woody, slightly nutty, weak pear, with water comes strong peppermint, it is creamy and sweet ... honey
    • Finish

      short, a bit woody, with water comes peppermint tea, the finish is much longer and more pleasant

    wenn der Ausgabepreis um 50€  lag finde ich den sehr fair bepreist - ein Malt mit Ecken und Kanten und ohne Waser leicht sprittig aber auch sehr delikate Noten
    • Nose
      Eucalyptus, mint, bright fresh sawdust of fresh wood, sour lemon, pear, juice orange - buttery-waxy-creamy wood notes of fresh wood
    • Taste
      deutlich spürbarer Alkohol, bitzelt etwas, schöne kräuterig cremige Holznote, Möblpolitur, staubige alte Möbel, süß, Baumsaft, Walnussschalen, Wachs, Bittermandel 
    • Finish
      relativ kurz - vorallem die Bitterstoffe, Zitronendropse und die Wachsnote bleiben am Längsten am Gaumen

    Nice one to drink, not too complex but a very convenient taste. Not bad for the age and the price. Especially the viscosity amazed me.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, wet wood (spicy), smooth alcohol with sweet sugar hints. Pleasant and intense fruits (grapes).
    • Taste
      Highly viscous or oily. Sweet at first, followed by a strong bitterness turning the taste into a dry feeling. Vanilla and grapes again, a intense and strong taste overall.
    • Finish
      Strong wood, more than the color indicated.

    Whisky which stays on the surface. Does what young and does not yet fulfill what is quite strange for a 15-year-old whisky.
    It is not bad but not really impressive either. I had expected something more from it in one way or another.
