Millstone 10 YO French Oak, 40 %
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.
