Some Scottish distilleries are fairly average at best. However, given a craft presentation, the intrinsic quality of a previously overlooked Single Malt can improve significantly. Deanston 12 is a good example. Floral honey, breakfast cereals and whiffs of fresh oak characterize the nose. It’s soft, fresh and almost Irish with lots of 'green' notes. The taste unfolds strong and biscuity with vanilla fudge, sour citrus and hints of cough syrup. Straightforward, mildly bitter and gingery sweet in its long finish, this Cinderella malt proves to be highly underestimated.
