    Deanston 12 Year Old - Malt of April 2016

    Posted by Carlee Wilson

    Powered by its own hydro-electric plant using water from the Tieth, Deanston actually produce enough power to give back a proportion to the National Grid, making its production very green indeed. Couple this with the fact that Deanston only use Scottish products and its barley is certified organic, this low impact whisky is unique amongst other whisky producers. And it does not stop there as thankfully, the non-chill filtered, non coloured whisky found inside its attractive yet simple packaging is at a chewy 46.3% ABV helping retain as much of the natural feel of the dram.

    Tasting note;


    Natural, rich gold


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

    Mouth Feel:

    Smooth creamy sweetness with sumptuous hints of malted honey spicyness and soft vanilla.


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