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.

Deanston 12 Year Old Reviews

Simply Quality

This is an outstanding whisky. Always consistently good and excellent value for money.

Good whisky

First time tasting Deanston and I was pleased to find this whisky is good. It somehow isn't popular which is odd considering the value you get for money. I'm a lover of high proof whisky and thus is an excellent 12 year old. Light and oaky but still l has character. Will buy again

More like a quality lowland, with a more gentle touch

A pal took me to this distillery for a birthday treat, on the tour we sampled many of the whiskies and this one stood out as a fine example of the distillers art, to my taste it deserves 4 stars.

Can’t deny that it’s quality…

…. But over the course of the bottle I started to find it a little bit limited. Clean, bright and crisp, and undoubtedly a hit with everyone I gave a dram. Maybe it’s just that I prefer a bit of peat?

Complex and subtle.

Recently retired after 35 years in the perfume industry I am starting to build a small collection for entertaining. Deanston is my local distillery and I'm not disappointed in this addition, with every mouthful I find subtle notes of all kinds. Definitely a worthy alternative to the fashionable Islay smoke bombshells!

Great find, will remain a constant part of my collection.

Fantastic find. Just heard about the Deanston 12 recently.
I’m usually all in for Islay. The more peat the better.
But this dram offered me an excellent alternative.
Well balanced sweetness, long pleasant finish.
Perfect digestive, espresso and tiramisu just got so much better.

Massively underrated whiskey

A new discovery and one I will definitely return to.
Smooth and easy to drink with a great finish.
Fantastic value.

The king of single malt whisky

Deanston was the first scotch I ever tried, and after going on a journey of discovery tasting various different whiskies from all the regions, it remains my number 1! Deliciously malty, resinous, barley sugar and fresh wood.. with a finish that lingers long after your last sip. Overall an amazing dram and I would highly recommend to anyone whether you are experienced or not!

Value in spades

One of the best value integrity malts on the market at the moment, and one of the most pleasurable flavour profiles. Deanston has some of the characteristics of Loch Lomond, Linkwood, Fettercairn, etc - sweet malts, but the honeyed, nutty quality of the 12 in particular stands out for how relatively unacerbic the spirit element is, and despite its sweetness, isn't as saccharine as a Loch Lomond. The 12 is mature and balanced, and the complimentary flavours do give it a rather 'easy drinking' profile, which some may find disappointing if looking for a challenge, but there is complexity there too. Not quite the full-bodied punch of an Arran, for example, but dumpsters your average Glenfiddich 12 in its delicate charms. Do try the worthy 18yo as well if you find it cheap (it often is), much like Linkwood and Fettercairn, the combination of sweetness with bitter oak from higher vintages is compelling. Long may this distillery remain affordable and "undiscovered"!
