On the nose I have sherry associations, but it is less in the direction of sherry sweetness, but more in the direction of cinnamon, blackberries, maybe also strawberries. The wood is also audible. He is very pleasant and mature. The alcohol is cooling but doesn't sting. 22P
On the palate a pleasant spice, sweet, strawberries, brown sugar, very oily-buttery, lines the entire mouth and in the finish the oak fights its way through. Wow! Really good! I love well-made port whiskys and this one is definitely one of them! The second time it smells, it looks sweeter, on the palate it becomes more and more spicy when it is "chewed". You can feel the strength of the cask, it tingles, the palate is pleasantly warmed, and this spicy sweetness, paired with the fruit cocktail (strawberries, raspberry jam), is sticky on the cheeks. My loot topic - very clear! 24P
The finish is long to medium. After swallowing, you first have the oak spice, which struggles through the dark fruits, and finally the sweetness and sagar a hint of vanilla prevails. It lasts for a while and feels comfortable! 23P
The malt is very consistent, very easy to drink without water and the barrel is clearly noticeable. Port paired with the Deanston spirit goes very well. I don't want to make a comparison with the 20s sherry here. What the two have in common, however, is the really successful implementation in terms of barrel maturation. 23P
What a dram!
