Customer Rating

A relaunch in fancy packaging for Burn Stewart's Deanston single malt, previously famous as the whisky used in the much-missed Wallace whisky liqueur. Trivia snitched from the Malt Whisky Yearbook: Deanston is the only distillery in Scotland that is self-sustaining for electricity, being equipped with a dam and a turbine.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    Nose: Fresh hays of summer, malty cereal, rich creamy toffee and honeyed heather balanced with sweet oak and barley sugar.

    Palate: Smooth creamy sweetness with sumptuous hints of fruit, malty honeyed spiciness and soft vanilla.

    Finish: Crisp and satisfying with a tingle of cloves which linger, then gently fade.

    Tried it for the first time last night. Very impressed. Quite elegant and refined. Vanilla cream on the palate with a lingering spicy finish.

    On first taste I poured it down the sink. But then I gave it a second chance and boy...how it repaid me! Keep the faith, let it settle for 20 minutes, no water. A rough diamond.

    Very good malt with distinctive taste of biscuits and rich spices. Excellent value and bottled at 46% ABV. Love it

    My favourite Scotch. Went to a Whisky tasting of about 40 bottles and this was the best. It's got 50% more Whisky flavour due to the fact that it isn't chillfiltered !!

    Excellent, close your eyes and you would swear this was closer to a £100 bottle.
