Whisky or Whiskey

Interesting fact… Deanston 12 Year Old whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Deanston 12 Year Old whiskey, instead of whisky.

Deanston 12 Bottling Note

The new, relaunched 12 year old, this single malt has been bottled at a slightly higher proof, negating the necessity for chill-filtration and as such retaining more of its original charm. A lovely dram from the Deanston distillery.

User Reviews of the Deanston 12 Year Old

A Delightful Surprise

Being in the U.S. and not in a major metropolitan area, it is hard to acquire much beyond the "usual suspects." I was intrigued when I saw this in a store near Rochester, NY, and have thoroughly enjoyed it.

Hmmmm

Three bad reviews in a row, and one from a guy who had not drunk it yet. Makes me wonder.

ps

I forgot to rate..., the economical price helped earn the extra half star.

Taste is a subjective subject

I recently tried the Deanston 12 yr and wanted to see what others thought of it, hence my visit to this site. I too am confused by the overly negative reviews and agree with one poster's comments that they may have has ulterior motives for the bashing. In my opinion this is a very nice scotch when you are in the mood for something lighter and sweeter, and not in the mood for smoky or peaty offerings. Let me just state for the record that when I am in the mood for the later type, several versions of Laphroaig fit the bill perfectly. It's certainly a matter of personal taste, though I feel almost sorry for those who can only enjoy one narrow taste profile when the world of scotch offers so many to enjoy. I am also slightly curious as to how those negative reviewers feel about Macallans

Lovely whisky - confusing reviews

I was able to sample this at the weekend and found it light and sweet. I am no stranger to a variety of different malts and blends, so am highly confused by the inconsistency of reviews on this page. I call on someone with the ability to investigate this inconsistency, as it seems a shame for a lovely whisky to be tarnished by these bizarre claims.

Good god

I see people giving this a good review and I think I must be drinking something else :| this stuff is foul both painful to the nose and pallet. It's how I'd imagine distilled marmite to taste like, don't get me wrong whisky is by far and away my favorite spirit but this stuff is nasty. By all means try it and see for your self but this one certainly isn't for me. In fact most people trying it in the pub were under the same impression.

Shenanigans

I call shenanigans on all the bad reviews for both Deanston and Tobermory 10. I am a restauranteur/bar owner and have stocked both over the course of many years after doing multiple blind tastings. I am a fan of well balanced, subtle, complex, slightly sweet, non-bitter and easy drinking smooth liquors. I am not a fan of harsh, alcohol tasting/burn, overly strong flavors, heavily intense flavors. I can understand why those who prefer a stronger, bolder profile might not enjoy Tobermory or Deanston as much a I do, but in no way can I understand some of the "worst I've ever had" type criticisms from anyone unless they are drinking from a damaged, abused or counterfeit bottle. Or, the bad reviews might be from those with other motives. I urge all to try for themselves, taste blind if possible among a selection of good offerings, and make up one's own mind. Deanston 12 and Tobermory 10 are among my favorite scotch whiskies at any price and are truly great values with price considered. Ledaig also gets a nod from me as well.

One of our favorites

Sweet and easy to drink, most excellent for the price.

12th December 2013

Lovely Stuff

Just cannot understand the criticism. This is a great malt with a distinctive biscuit flavour and some interesting spices. It's also fantastic value and bottled at 46%. Highly recommended

19th November 2013

Harsh, aggressive, but with some lovely qualities.

In its sharp, lemon-honey flavour, the Deanston 12 is really quite delightful, almost refreshing. The unpleasant alcohol burn, and the over-arching harshness of it make it much harder going than its flavour can carry sadly, even with the addition of water.

Worst single malt in my collection

The worst single malt I've tried so far (35 different distillers) and worse than many blends. Badly made spirit, aggresive and bitter. Awful.

4th November 2013

FYI

found it at joe canal's in Princeton, NJ. haven't tried it yet but the bottle is pretty

3rd October 2013

No Thank You!

I enjoy a range of quality Malts but this isn't one of them. Been given e bottle of Deanston 12 year old and it has to be the most awful whiskey I have tried to drink in 50 years.

1st September 2013

Great stuff

Hard to find but a very decent malt for this cost. Complicated and very nice drinker.

13th July 2013

Keep coming back

Having explored a reasonable gamut of malts, I find myself returning to this Deanston 12yr over and over again. I think I have now finished 6 bottles of this whisky, and have just today bought another. While this is not a particularly special single malt, what it does have going for it is that spark of taste that keeps you coming back. Consistency is a large key here, and each sip just feels like an old friend you've known for years, and will happily know for life. It is very easy to drink, and quite smooth, both with and without a splash of water. The tasting notes above are pretty accurate to my taste-buds.

29th June 2013

Just awesome malt

Just great and yes...underrated.

1st May 2013

Scotchy Scotch Scotch...

Nothing to see here. Move along...

6th February 2013

Underrated

The definition of a light, refreshing whisky. Perfectly balanced. Mouth-wateringly zesty, not acidic. Sweet without becoming cloying. And dangerously easy to drink. Wins you over with its subtle charms. I keep coming back to this one.

Missing the best single malt

We live in the Philadelphia area USA and can't find this anywhere. It was truly the best overall single malt scotch. Light caramel and hint of honey. The 12yr is the best
