Tasting Notes by DutchGaelisch
I hessitated te write this review, the first bottle I bought for € 30,- was absolutely wonderfull, it didn't last a week. Was it a lucky shot from Deanston? Maybe? Afterall we know all about batch differences. So I bought another bottle, again wondefull stuff. Then I looked at the (not so good) reviews on Connosr, are we talking about the same bottle? It can't be? I'm I nuts? Ore is this bottle just hitting my sweet spot? I prefer to go for the last option!
What is it like? Deanston, 12 year old, 46.3%, non chill-filtering, no colouring. So far all good stuff!
The flavors are bright with notes of citrus, barly, lemongrass, honey, vanilla. The finish is easy-going and lingering due to the higher ABV. It reminds me vagely of The Glenlivet Nadurra, both bottles are 100% Bourbon Barrels and a high ABV. For € 30,- a bottle an absolute winner and a wonderfull everyday dram. Deanston keep up the good work!
