Whisky Review #31 – The Single Cask Deanston 15 Years Old

Deanston 15 years old is a single malt Scotch from Deanston Distillery. It was distilled in 1997 and matured in its cask for 15 years before it was selected by TSC. Cask #1958 was then bottled at 45.8% abv under the label of TSC. It is one of the four exceptional choices offered by TSC to its new members as a welcome gift at the moment. It will be replaced once it is completely sold out!

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Deep Gold
ABV: 45.8%

Nose: The immediate sweet notes on the nose feels like walking into a store full of fresh perfume. Almond vanilla crackers with key lime custard tart mix with honey tea and wild lilies follow after. (16/20 points)

Palate: A sweet and citrus palate like a honeycomb cracker with limes and grapefruits hits the palate pleasantly. It gradually turns into a mellow peppercorn with creamy vanilla burnt wood (16/20 points)

Body: The body is reasonably balanced with honey and vanilla. (28/40 points)

Finish: The finish is short but sweet with a pleasant oaky woodiness (15/20 points)

Total Grade: 75/100 points


Geek Flora: “I like how it reminds me of a perfume shop with all my favourite perfumes. A sweet and easy drink that goes well as an after-dinner dram.”
