  1. Okto-Bull scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Delicious. That I have a Deanston in the glass I notice at first nose. Great alternative to the 10yo OA PX HypeHype Baby Whisky.
    • Nose
      Sulfur rises directly in the nose, pine resin, menthol, cold ash. The alcohol is very well integrated. This Deanston-typical very earthy and dirty. with water: the sulfur is a little less, but is still the dominant part; spice and honey cake are added
    • Taste
      Really cute on the tongue. Again this dirty Deanston sulfur note. Chocolate, pepper, sweet caramel, oak, the 50% tingle pleasantly on the tongue with water: oak, chocolate, vanilla
    • Finish
      Oak, menthol, seasoning, medium-long with water: chocolate and sweetness are added

  5. Calmar scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A very good, deep and rich flavor is replaced by a strongly smashed taste / finish, as a result we have a strong oak sherry standard, maybe you will like wood lovers.
    • Nose
      Open, first nose - wine barrels; dried fruits - raisins, dried apricots, dried pineapple; fruit confiture, green apples, lemon zest, wet wool, weak shades of the farmyard, a few mineral motifs and herbs, mandarin, kumquat.
    • Taste
      Powerful, sharp, wine notes interspersed with dried fruits on the background of oak - and there is a lot of oak, it is astringent and astringent, it bitterens and suppresses everything around, it calms down with time and it is possible to distinguish between sherry derivatives.
    • Finish
        Oak bitterness, burnt caramel, weak notes of dried fruits, ginger, burnt rusks, orange peel.

  8. Sapiano scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    After I had the Deanston 18 in the glass today, which surprised me with a lot of hay and beautiful Bourbon oak, I have indulged in yet another Deanston:

    Deanston 1999/2015 Dun Beaghan PX Finish 91781 50% WID: 70300

    Nose: After pouring equal figs, raisins, association with Ritter Sport rum grape nut. I could get it. The anticipation is great. Oak comes in the background. After a while then a jump-off. I put the glass down again and let him take another breath. Figs and raisins come back. A cool sting remains. Is there the described softwood? It is time to try!
    After the first sip, the nose shows significantly more green herbs. The figs are unfortunately no longer recognizable.

    Taste: Sweet, spicy honey, chocolate, oak, orange juice with a splash of lemon, then comes ginger. More and more ginger. It's getting too hot, I have to swallow. The sharpness decreases later after further sips.

    Departure: Chocolate and ginger strengthen to subsequently fade away. Sweetness stays. Warms the esophagus. Mouth and throat become cool over time. Is there menthol? Overall, relatively long.

    Conclusion: somehow I still do not know what to think of him. The initial nose I liked the most. The later development is very interesting, but then I miss the great figs and feel like someone had played a trick on me. Maybe it was my daily form?
