Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Fresh citrus, honeyed barley and a subtle hint of smoke.

Palate: Toffee sweets pop up first, followed by a dollop of cream and oak notes.

Finish: Oak spices on the finish.

Overall: Well made, the new oak doesn't take over the whisky at all, which is always a risk with these casks.

    All Day Long

    Yes I admit it I drink it all day long because it is good and it is affordable.

    Little Gem

    Never heard of Deanston. For a young whisky it is very well balanced.

    3rd April 2015


    Delicious surprise, for the price you cannot beat the quality.

    Un coup de foudre / Love at first sip ;-)

    Plutôt amoureux de la tourbe, du caractère terrien ou marin, j'ai adoré ce Deanston à la première lampée: un équilibre entre le citron, le miel, la vanille et le chêne; il est doux (bien que 46,3%) et a pourtant beaucoup de caractère.
    Je suis allé chercher des informations sur le site de la distillerie: son histoire et ses valeurs témoignent d'un amour, d'un professionnalisme et d'une humanité qui se sentent dans leur whisky -bravo!
    Je le recommande, je l'ai d'ailleurs trouvé à 30 euros seulement; toute leur gamme m'intéresse.

    Being more a peat- or sea- or earth-flavoured whisky lover, I really loved this Deanston Virgin oak, at first sip: a balance between citrus, honey, vanilla and oak; it is smooth AND has a lot of character.
    I have been on Deanston's website: their history and values show love, professionalism and humanity that you can feel in their whisky.
    I'm going to buy more of it, and offer to those I love :-) !

    Highly Recommended

    Cannot beat the price for a well balanced young whisky. Anybody know how long they age it for?

    16th March 2015

    Young and Brave characters

    Reminds me of some of Milroy's Soho special bottlings. Young with plenty of oak and spice and well balanced with zesty aromas and vanilla and toffee. Great value for adventurous connoisseurs, 5 stars all the way!

    16th March 2015

    Something different

    Great price for a whisky that has tons of characters. Fun to do blind tasting with friends. My secret weapon ;-)

    The afterglow is the best part. Delicious

    14th February 2015

    Great low-cost single-malt! Recommended!

    Two things about this whisky grabbed my attention: "un-chill filtered" and "nothing added", ie: no E150 caramel coloring. Being priced at under $30 ($26 to be exact), this was a whisky I had to try, and I am glad I did.
    It has a bit of a "young" taste, not as smooth as a more mature whisky, but still very good.
    I purchased a case after realized I liked it, some to store away for later enjoyment, some to enjoy with friends at gatherings, etc. And as it's so affordable, it will be great for those friends who mix with cola.

    Flavorful, but you wouldn't call it smooth

    Oceans of flavor, and a pretty good price. Not at all smooth, and I know that matters to many, but I enjoyed it.

    22nd January 2015

    A hint of haggis

    May be my imagination, or maybe it's the barley, but I detected a hint of haggis. A fine drink - with lots of character

    18th January 2015

    Young but tasty

    Well balanced, smooth, people from Deanston know what they're doing...

    26th September 2014

    Very tasty and pretty cheap... Even in canada.

    I have come to a conclusion about myself: I like new oak. There I said it. I find new oak whisky to be very tasty. And like the more popular sherry or port casks, new oak can really make young whisky sparkle. I like this whisky, here are some notes...

    Nose: liquorice, straw, fresh cut grass, chip truck fries with vinegar on them, roses, tomato soup.
    Taste: sweet, lemon
    Colour: light straw

    Cheap in US

    Just picked up a bottle for 28 US. Steal!

    18th April 2014

    Great find!

    Surprisingly rich for a No Age Statement whisky. I actually ran into the sales rep for its distributor while I was browsing in the store and his description matched my tastes pretty well, so I bought it. Salesman said it's about 9 years old at the time of bottling. There's a slight fruity aspect to the nose and a delightful flavor toffee on the palate. Add a drop of water to this 46% whisky to ignite all the flavors and enjoy!

    18th February 2014

    this stuff is great!!!

    I'm telling you. Keep in mind, this is a no age statement and for it being bottled at 46.3%, non-chilled filtered and no caramel color added, that's pretty impressive. It's simple,but all the little that it has packs a wallop. It has all the goodies that we like in a good dram: vanilla, oak, spice, cream, baked goods, toffee. I really enjoyed this one. I will purchase this again!

    4th February 2014

    Good daily drinker

    Not quite as smooth as the Deanston 12 but with many of the same positive characteristics. It's $15-20 cheaper than the 12 in my area, so we keep it around as a less expensive option.
