Millstone Dutch Rye 5 years old whisky 40% 70cl
Milstone Dutch Rye is an unusual offering as rye whiskies are usually the sole domain of the American distillers but here we have one from the Netherlands of all places! The whisky is 5 years old and is made in the Zuidam distillery.
The best way to describe this dram is by imagining a cross between a good bourbon and an easy drinking Scotch from Speyside and you'll be about there. The liquid is smooth and warming with lovely vanilla notes providing a finish that would be fitting of a single malt. This hard to classify whisky comes with a decent complexity that belies its relatively young age. Well done the Netherlands!
