Millstone 2004 Barrel Proof Rye. Image courtesy Speciality Drinks, Ltd. This is a 10-year-old single cask Rye whisky from Zuidam Distillers in The Netherlands bottled for The Whisky Exchange in London, with just 245 bottles available.

The nose is spicy, yet still very smooth with notes of toasted rye bagels, dark chocolate with sea salt, molasses, clove, and a hint of lime peel. The taste has orange oils, maple syrup, spicy touches of clove and cinnamon, melted caramel, red apples, and a hint of honey. The finish is soft, smooth, and long…reminds me of cinnamon apple pie fresh from the oven. Excellent. (February, 2015)
