Deanston 18 Year
Single Malt — Highlands, Scotland
Reviewed August 17, 2019
This is a solidly made whisky; not overly complex or dynamic but tasty nonetheless. The flavor profile is graham cracker, warm honey, sweet cream butter, and toasted marshmallows. I bought this bottle about 5 months ago and I’m now 3/4 through it. This has gotten better over time but it’s still not a wow whiskey. I’ve only had two Deanstons - the 18 and the 14 organic but have found both to be a little underwhelming. Some of this may be related to the hype and my expectations; who knows. I also haven’t tried anything matured in sherry so maybe that is an avenue to explore.
