A robust and creamy malt from a distillery not often seen in independent bottlings. Somehoew the gentle fruit aromas manage to stand up against the wood spice. – Rating: 86/100

In a way this is Burn Stewart’s Highland equivalent of the Bunnahabhain Darach Ur. It’s not bad at all, but it does not have the richness of its cousin from Islay. Rating: 83/100

The relaunched Deanston is a rich and rather savoury dram. Some unusal flavours probably don’t make it a whisky for anybody, but I like it. – Rating: 84/100

The sharp nose is not tamed by water. The tingle on the palate is too strong to be fully enjoyable, not to mention the lack of complexity. – Rating: 75/100
