Millstone 10 YO American Oak

Millstone 10 YO American Oak

Produced by Zuidam Distillery in the Netherlands. The Millstone 10 YO American Oak is just what it says in the title; a ten year old single malt whisky matured in American Oak.

You can buy this online at around GBP 72.

Nose: Lighter. Cool vanilla ice-cream with fudge and coconut flakes. Hints of fudge and cookie dough.

Taste: Medium body. On the dry side. Quite spicy upfront. Black pepper, ancho chili, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Finish: Medium long finish. Mainly dry oakiness, bitter-ish herbal notes and rosewater. Then, weirdly enough I detect chocolate milk. Cloves and caramel towards the end.

Comments: Another one that is a bit hard to pin down. The nose is appealing, the taste is a bit - hmm unfocused.
