    Posted by Le Chardon d'Or

    Brian Maule at Le Chardon d'Or Malt of the Month

     For October we have chosen the multi award winnng Deanston 12yo as our Malt of the month

    Deanston 12 Year Old

    Indulge your traditional side with this seductive single malt. Matured for 12 years in ex-bourbon barrels, its delicate taste of sweet, honeyed fruit and gentle warmth will bewitch you. Not even a hint of smoke. Smooth, easy and an absolute delight.

    "Every drop of Deanston Single Malt is a marriage of the finest Scottish ingredients and the skill of our craft to create the wonderful, fresh honeyed sweetness that is unmistakably Deanston. Everything we are goes into everything we make, nothing is added, bar time and dedication. What you taste is whisky the way nature intended and we would not have it any other way." 

    Tasting Notes


    Fresh hays of summer, malty cereal, rich creamy toffee and honeyed heather balanced with sweet oak and barley sugar.


    Smooth creamy sweetness with sumptuous hints of fruit, malty honeyed spiciness and soft vanilla.


    Crisp and satisfying with a tingle of cloves which linger, then gently fade.


    Why not treat yourself to a dram on your next visit to Le Chardon d’Or?
