I’d been hoping to get a full bottle of Deanston 12yo from Marks & Spencer but it seems the distillery no longer supplies the famous store with a version of their 12yo. The Whisky Bible gives the M&S bottling 84.5/100, so the author clearly feels this is different, and better whisky to the standard 12yo.

Just when I thought I’d have to slum it with the regular 12yo that only gets 75/100 I discover different drinkers have different opinions! Wow, now there’s a shocker! 🙂 5 reviewers on Malt Maniacs give this 12yo an average mark of 83/100 and then Ralfy gives it an excellent 88/100. Knowing how much Ralfy likes whisky at 46%+ and non-chill filtered, the Deanston 12yo has some qualities he loves before he’s even tasted it. If I enjoy this miniature I’ll definitely be after a full 70cl!
