Millstone Rye Whisky 2007/2014 for Usquebaugh Society

by Oliver Klimek on August 12, 2015

Virgin American oak – Cask 538 – 43.3%

My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Creme brulee, vanilla, polished wood, orange zest, cloves, hint of mint, camphor and nutmeg.
Palate: Caramel, vanilla, orange zest, cinnamon, nutmeg and hints of pepper.
Finish: Medium long, sweet and spicy
Overall: Mind you, this is a  good tasting whisky, but am not sure if it was the right decison to put it into the cask at 46% ABV. There is almost no reserve for adding water, and overall it is too mild for what I expect of a rye. It feels more like a bourbon at the lower end of the “high rye” spectrum. 

Rating: 83/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
