Tasted #198: Millstone French Oak 8yo (#101drams)

We're powering through the #101drams list at the moment. Next up, a whisky from a country we haven't yet featured in this blog - the Netherlands!

Millstone Whisky comes from the Zuidam Distillery, a family run distillery in operation for 40 years. I picked up a sample of their 8yo French Oak a while ago from Master of Malt, and finally got around to trying it recently...

Millstone French Oak 8yo (40% ABV, 8yo, Netherlands, No longer available)
Colour: Slightly dull orange.

Nose: Oranges, lime and lemon zest. Some grains, and freshly-cut grass.

Palate: Young, but not "hot". Loads of citrus. Light but flavoursome. Oat cakes, short bread, tangy but not overly sweet.

Finish: Medium length, with oats and a hint of salt.

Rating (on my very non-scientific scale): 91/100. Not bad.
