Day 18 – Millstone

Today’s cracking dram from Kensington Wine Market’s Whisky Advent Calendar is another international single malt.  This time we found a Dutch single malt from Millstone.  This expression is a peated malt matured in Pedro Ximenez solera casks.  The mixture of the peated malt and Sherry influence creates a very wide range of flavours.2796FF83-316E-4414-A910-2EA3A6B95996

Bottled at 46% ABV

Nose: Oak spices and oily brine and malty cereal wrapped in a haze of peat smoke.

Palate: Raisins, sultanas, chocolate and baking spices wafting from an earth and oak floor galley.

Finish: More baking spices and raisins.  Peat seems to have diminished

Rating: 7.5/10
