Glad I finally tried a Deanston - especially as it’s owned by South African company Distell.
Put it off due to being fixated on the 12yo which is strangely not available in South Africa.
Lemongrass. Nutmeg. Orange. Orange zest. Spicy. Bright. Fresh
Naartjie (clementine) spicy. Not as sharp from the new oak as I thought it would be. Well balanced. Juicy and sparkly like a bourbon… but not ott sweet like lots of bourbons are.
Arrival is bright and powerful, but very very quickly falls away (lack of body) and while the finish is nice and lingering I would love to try the 12yo for that extra depth and body.
