Nice dram on a cold night. Definitely sweet with a warming sensation in the mouth. A hint of spice and maybe some citrus.

Very bland, average whiskey

Thomas,
This one really surprised me. As a true Scotch lover I didn't have high expectations given the lack of age statement and relatively low price. Don't let either of those dissuade you from trying this one. This is everything a Highland single malt should be. Easy to drink neat so I didn't try with water but one could assume that might open it up a bit more. Great product at this price point.

Really good 12 yo.
Deanston 18 Year Old Bourbon Cask Finish
Benjamin,
Incredible bourbon tones as you finish a ridiculously smooth scotch. This particular spirit was exceptional neat or paired with a cube or two of ice. In full disclosure, this scotch actually intimidates me a bit because it's so easy to enjoy.

Daniel,
A bourbon-like finish to a nice easy drinking scotch.

Consumed neat. Not refined, tastes of straight wood and rubbing alcohol.

Doug,
I didn't know what to think about this one, but I really enjoy it. This one is more sweet than spicy with a nice complexity of flavors that is incredibly smooth and enjoyable. Top notch!

Smooth, jentle
Deanston Virgin Oak
Matthew,
Lovely Scotch for the price. The first thing I notice on the nose is a subtle bakers cocoa--paired with caramel and an oaky vanilla. Moving onto the taste, the cocoa carries through. It also has I touch of salty sweetness that makes for a pleasant sipper, but the most unusual--albeit delightful--flavor was a saison-like yeastiness typical of Belgian style beers. Being that this is bottled at a little bit higher alcohol content, I can't help but think it could benefit from a few drops of water, but all-in-all it is a very pleasing dram.

Ian,
A great way to ease yourself into the world of scotch. Not overly smoky (which caused my aversion to scotch). This allowed its sweetness to come through and make it a pleasant whisky. I enjoyed it the most on ice, but was enjoyable served neat as well.
Deanston Virgin Oak
Nate,
Very smooth finish and take the smokiness out of it.

pat,
Very smooth, oak is stronger than the sweetness. Nice for after a hard days work. Sadly I ran out.

James,
Solid for the price. A bit of a bite
Deanston 18 Year Old
Tony,
Smooth great flavour, a Scotch to savour and enjoy, for me a drink for a quiet moment reading if just sitting enjoying a moment of settled peaceful thought. Warm without being edgy but still clearly a spirit. Doesn't work at all with even the tiniest dash of water
Deanston 12 Year Old
Tony,
Still got an edge, but with a flavour profile that's very very good
Deanston Virgin Oak
Scotty,
Very intense nose with pepper, citrus, and hint of honey toward the end. Intense, thick and spicy taste with almost a lemon pepper and hint of vanilla at the end. A very long and spicy finish that sticks with you and ends on honey, lemon and vanilla notes. Add your usual amount of water. Then add 1/2 to 3/4 that amount. It helps dampen the spice and brings out more of those softer lemon, honey, vanilla and chocolate finishes.
Deanston Virgin Oak
Michael,
Good flavor but a bit sharp... just a bit. Seems like a young batch but unknown age makes it hard to judge. So, just a sharp edge but nice flavor.
Deanston Virgin Oak
Craig,
A good young malt with a nice blend of flavors but a sharp finish. A dash of water mellows this out a lot. Good value purchase.
Deanston Virgin Oak
Brandon,
Very green and cereal flavors. Great deal for the price.
Deanston Virgin Oak
Mr.,
Not bad. A bit of a bite in the finish but good for the price!
Deanston Virgin Oak
A.,
I don't really know why to say. I went to the distillery. It is a scotch that you either LOVE or HATE. I fall into the hate. Nothing specific. Nothing over the top. Just not a flavor of preference. Perhaps it is the Jim Beam & Wild Turkey casks rather than Spanish Sherry.... But there is a bite that doesn't work for me. My boss on the other hand thinks Deanston is PERFECT.

Edward,
Very good flavor ,oaky,but i think it needs to age longer
Deanston Virgin Oak
Thomas,
A bit rough around the edges, but for for the price this maybe the best Single Malt offered here.
Deanston Virgin Oak
Nicholas,
This is a scotch more than worth it's price. I has the bite of a young scotch, but a dash of water really opens up the flavors of the scotch. It is not the greatest scotch you will ever drink, but it might be the greatest scotch at this price.
