What's in a name? Millstone Peated whisky is called whisky because it's produced in The Netherlands. Were it from America it would be spelled Millstone Peated whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Creamy, malty aromas with hints of mixed peels, soft smoke, vanilla and butterscotch.
Palate: Peaty, oily palate entry. Youthful vanilla and spice notes. Hints of toffee and honey.
Finish: Long, spiced, peated finish.
A Dutch whisky! Very appealing aroma, lots of rich peat. Definitely more smoke than medicinal. Wow, what a taste... Rich and fruity like a Uigadeil or Lagavulin... What a treat! Not too complex, but hits all the right notes.
