Review #1143 | Scotch Review # 387 – Deanston 10yr PX Cask

The Schtick: This is a distillery bottling of spirit distilled at Deanston. It was aged for 8 years in bourbon casks, then finished in fresh PX casks for two more years. It is bottled without coloring or filtering. 

Distiller: Deanston

Bottler: Deanston

Selection: N/A

ABV: 51.5% ABV

Age: 10

Nose: Super rich. Sweet and syrupy, loaded with fig, honey, toffee and nutty sweetness. Impressively syrupy for so short a time in sherry. Pungent pipe tobacco, nutty praline and some cocoa.

Taste: Thick mouth feel, light heat. Rich with honey and toffee, lots of nutty sherry notes. Some currant, creme brulee, stewed fruits and blackberry.

Finish: Long, rich and sweet. Complex, loaded with candied fruits, blackberry, currant, pipe tobacco and nutty caramel. 

Overall: This was really impressive. Im a big fan, and this may just be my favorite Deanston release to date.

Thanks for reading!
