  • Distiller:

    Deanston

  • Bottler:

    Deanston

  • ABV:

    58.7%

  • Age:

    9 Years

  • Intro:

    This is a single cask release from Deanston that is matured for 9 years in a Bordeaux cask, then bottled at cask strength without coloring or filtering.

  • Nose:

    Honey, oak, caramel and cocoa. Nice wine note - blackberry, currant and some tannins. A little more rich than expected for the youth but theres a lot going on.

  • Taste:

    Thin, but no heat. Lots of juicy fruits. Blackberry, currant, peach and apricot. Lots of heat, though. Searing. Honey, vanilla, light oak.

  • Finish:

    Short, and very hot. Nice juicy berries, honey, caramel., tannins and some currant. But oh so hot.

  • Overall:

    This was good but entirely too hot and young for what it is. Good stuff, lots of wine influence but that heat needs to be tamed.

  • Score:

    5
