Customer Rating
Our first exclusive bottling of Millstone Rye from Zuidam in the Netherlands was so popular, we've chosen a second. This 2009 vintage has been aged for seven years in new American oak and is a unique and flavoursome whisky.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Sugar-coated baked apples with a side of marzipan and toffee. Rich and inviting, with notes of spicy rye, cinnamon, pastry dough and salted caramel, but balanced with aromas of Seville orange peel, orchard fruit and a soft floral note.

    Palate: Rich mouthfeel, with toffee and sweet spice initially – spiced rye bread, roasted almonds and glazed citrus peel, joined by cinnamon-cookie dough and salted butter. Big and spicy, but never gets out of hand, thanks to the soft fruitiness.

    Finish: Full bodied but well balanced, with the richness and spiciness working perfectly together.

    Comment: Full of flavour despite the relatively young age, this is bursting with sweet spice and fruit.

    Very underrated. People seem to want to spend twice as much on sourced American rye and ignore gems like this.
