Dates, wine, carnation, honey, blood orange
pulls off your shoes ... strong (st), sharpness, almost burn, sweet, fruit everything. Since I need water first! Nose makes for less fruit and more sweetness. Taste oily, still slightly spicy, soft vanilla sweetness. Orange marmalade that bitterness something.
long, dark chocolate
- blind tasting To my taste. Nose and taste are alike. TOP!
full, heavy and sweet, amaretto, sherry, cherries, oranges, chocolate, marzipan, dark fruits. Great nose!
oily, creamy, strong on the nose, sweet, peppery, sherry and oranges.
Long and fruity
- The surprisingly intense alcohol content of the first impression disappears relatively quickly and sweetness or fruit dominate the nose. The tart wood flavors harmonize perfectly with the sharpness.
A very interesting and delicious drop. I like it very much.
Blind tasting: Immediately stinging alcohol is noticeable, shortly thereafter overripe fruits mix with the alcohol. The overripe fruit infuses intense orange and mandarin flavor. Sweetness and a hint of vanilla are now dominating, the alcohol is decreasing and is now integrated harmoniously.
Fruit and spicy wood meet immediately at the first sip. A light biting becomes more and more intense and lets pearls dance on the tongue. Discreetly tart wood aromas, a touch of licorice and fruit play together. A bizzling and tingling is above all else. Dull wood tones dominate before pepper and chilli nourish the palate properly.
The finish begins with the bitter wood aromas and the peppery pungency of the taste. Chilli and spicy wood fraternize and exude a cozy warmth. At the end of the departure, the spicy wood gives way to a hint of walnut flavor.
- BLIND TASTING
Tip: very impressive, I just miss a little more elegance
- 55 - 58%

very strong, powerful and dry, more sherry, heavy, cinnamon, even diluted very intense, cloves
very long, dry on the cheeks and the tip of the tongue, again cinnamon
- Good " bang for the buck " pretty unusual in my optional
Sweets, oloroso Sherry, fruity full, bees -wax, spices
Lovely strong, again sweet intense, warm, mouthfilling nothing to let you think of that young age, grannies raspberry sweet
Mighty, heavily sweet
- A nicely sherried, but not
sherry-dominated malt. It's clearly a young whisky, but also a very
engaging one with a light, sweet, nervous character and a beautiful
Without water: Full, silky, intense.
Cherries, caramel, nectarines, glacéed apple. Some freshly ground
coffee, then it switches to floral and sour notes, a touch of
tangerine and a bit of yeast. It's definitely a young malt, but not
immature. The light Highland character and the sherry are nicely
With water: More „fizzy“, citrussy
and fresher. Lemonade, wine gums and a fresh fruit salad with lemon
juice, caramel syrup and some honeydew. For a fresh sherry cask it's
remarkably light, fresh and soft like a lightly sherried Lowland
Without water: Punchy and sweet attack.
The mouthfeel in the front of the palate is really full, jammy and
smooth. Orange juice with lots of pulp, raisins, brandy, grape juice,
caramel and sweetened coffee latte. Further back on the tongue it
gets a bit rough and the finish is a bit short, but nicely sweet.
With water: Silky mouthfeel, „huddles“
against the palate. Peaches, oranges, a touch of lemon. Honeydew
melon and Vanilla come to the front. In the background the malty
character of Deanston becomes more apparent with notes of malted
barley and ale. Still a bit too rough and hard on the back of the
tongue and into the finish.
Despite the rough, abrupt development
on the back of the tongue the malt has got a good length (especially
with water) with a satisfying sweet finish.
