Millstone Peated Rivesaltes Cask 3 Year Old Single Malt (46% abv)


This peated malt whiskey has the beautiful color of old gold and a rich and luscious flavor profile that far exceeds its relative youth. The whiskey expresses those typical notes that you would expect from a relatively youthful peated whiskey fully matured in Rivesaltes casks. Despite the full maturation in Rivesaltes barrels, the first impression is fresh rather than sweet. If you give the whiskey some time in your glass and the whiskey shines with its warm and complex character. The unique qualities of this whiskey stem from the use of a crystal clear wort that is slowly fermented for 7 days and the slow distillation method with the relatively early cut point.

Tasting Notes:
Color: very dark gold

Nose : Fresh and fruity with rich and warm undertones. The first impression of the whiskey is that it feels very mature and integrated. The warm aromas of smokiness, chocolate, toasted almonds and vanilla of this peated whiskey are supported
by the aromas of warm stewed cherries. This develops into a rich and complex whiskey that
has a distinct orange, citrus character to balance those smoky notes from the campfire.

Taste: Wonderfully balanced. Warm notes of Amarena cherries and typical millstone notes of oranges and various other citrus flavors balanced with the deep and interesting smoky notes of the peat.

Finish: long, almondy, smoky and slightly drying with great complexity
