Michael Jackson

Nose
Dry. Light peat. Grass. Linseed, leather.
Palate
Lightly oily. Sweet. Lemon-zest. Lemongrass. Lightly malty.
Finish
Sherbet. Lemon-zest again. Grass. Appetising nutty dryness.
Comment
More of a Lowland style. If Deanston were regarded as a Lowland distillery, it would score higher.

Jim Murray

Nose
Delicate intertwining of honey and butterscotch with a bite of dry oak. Redeemed, rather unusually, by a sprinkling of crushed rose petals.
Palate
A thin, insipid, start then a roar of spice, malt and oak in one mad rush.
Finish
Bitter at first then softening oak.
Comment
Oops. Nothing like the lovely dram at this age I normally come across. Pleasant enough, but too thin and lacklustre to be true.
