2012 Lepanto Matured
When the distillery first opened in 1966, an old weaving shed was converted to a cooperage where casks were handmade and repaired. Overtime, this cooperage evolved into our much-loved Warehouse 4; a traditional dunnage maturation warehouse and the perfect home to a wide range of aging whiskeys dating back to the 1960s.
As part of the Warehouse 4 Collection, this 11 year old single malt celebrates the collaboration between our Master Blender and Distillery team who together select interesting casks that best showcase Deanston’s unique soft, honeyed and waxy spirit.
Distilled on the 7th of March 2012 and then fully matured in a spicy Lepanto brandy cask, this limited-edition single cask demonstrates the robust, waxy nature of Deanston and its ability to stand up to strong cask types. A beautifully rounded dram, with creamy notes of candied fruit, orange marmalade and a dusting of nutmeg.
Hand filled at Deanston by Distillery Tour Guide, Ruth Buchanan, in October 2023 at a cask strength of 59.0% ABV. Cask number 587.
