33 – Deanston 2008 11YO by Signatory cask 900072
Nose firecrackers, dried apricots – the nose is for me beautiful and promised so much.
Palate is sulfur, pop corn, soy sauce, honey and stone fruit but the sulphur tired cask notes overwhelm… it’s faulty to me and I love over done sherry.
Finish salt and heather and more sulfur.
