Millstone 10 YO French Oak, 40 %

Millstone 10 YO French OakAbout time I tried more whisky from the Zuidam distillery in the Netherlands. I have now lined up a handful of reviews for the next week or two. First off we have the Millstone 10 YO French Oak.

You can buy the Millstone 10 YO French Oak online at around GBP 70.

Nose: Light and on the shy side. Cloves, nutmeg and cut grass. Vanilla and sawdust.

Taste: Light body. Dry-ish, almost chewy. Fruity ashes and dark chocolate. Herbal and softly spicy.

Finish: Medium long finish. Now I find dark chocolate ashes. Green notes of cut grass and dry hay. Really dries up towards the end. Mainly dark chocolate now.

Comments: A dram that is a bit hard to place. I certainly find a lot of influence from the French oak, but not a whole more – it overwhelms and creates a slight imbalance to me.
