The Deveron 12 Year Old
This time last year I was lucky enough to try a work in progress version of this dram. It was at the same 40% ABV as this one.
I’m a little disappointed as I had hoped all new range drams would be at 46%, this technically isn’t new range as was previously part of the Glen Deveron range, but I do understand why whisky companies choose to continue to bottle at 40%.
This is a subtle and gentle dram, I do like it but the mouthfeel is lacking in any real punch and although the finish is tasty it's extremely short.
I don’t think sampling this in a store would be enough to make you buy it, it needs a lot of time spent with it to get anything out of it.
Thanks to The Deveron for including me on this tasting
