.millstone – 14yo – 1999 px

46% abv, €65, single malt, non-chill filtered, natural colour

Nose: wet grain, mash, rye?, wet dog, sweet, rubber, leather, mint, sherry, raisins, christmas pudding, dried fruits, nutmeg, nuts, walnuts,
Palate: sharp, pepper, sweet, syrup, liquorice, honey, bitter,
Finish: sweet, medium dry, floral, heather short, a mouth full of gummy bears, iron
Mark: +++/++

Conclusion: rather strange… something is off with this… but: After a while in the glass it gets better. Much better. Loveable stuff, I would buy a bottle if it were priced differently.

More info: tasted during the #MilroysTT2 twitter tasting that was organised by @TheWhiskyWire. My guess was it to be a single grain, specifically Girvan, matured on a good sherry butt.

Distilled on 26/02/1999, matured in ex-Sherry cask #1355 – Bottled on 15/03/2013 into 371 bottles
