What's not to like? I can't remember what this cost me, but it was bought locally which means not much. A very kind nose that hints at the sweetness to come beneath a covering layer of cereal, long dry grass, coconut. The tiny, sharp whisky sting lies just behind an opening sip that is chewy and sweet without being cloying. That hit keeps it from being overpoweringly sweet and helps tame the dash of spice and powdered cinnamon. It dries in the mouth, but only a tiny bit, in that stiffening way that helps a short finish linger...just another example of how finely balanced this whisky is. I like value for money whisky. This is one of them. Great stuff.

I have some of the Deanston 12 year old un-chill filtered. It's also a very pleasant surprise and only $27 in the New Hampshire (US) liquor stores. The price is certainly right and the taste is quite nice for such an inexpensive Scotch.
