Every three days, a whisky review of one of the 50,000+ Whisky Suggest App users is selected as Featured Whisky Review. Today we’re sharing Angels_share‘s tasting notes of Millstone 2013 Peated PX.

It was matured in first- and second-fill PX sherry casks. Very intense maturation. The PX cask worked well. It’s a slightly soiled and aggressive but powerful and very complex whisky. It’s very well matured, and that at 5 years old (almost🙂, just it was distilled in May ’13 and bottled on 31.04.2018).

Very interesting nose… The peat profile here is quite unique too. So, I’m lucky to have a bottle. (Bottle #456. Batch #3. Bottle code 1378ZU.)

Nose

Salted caramel, bright sherry, heavily roasted barley, smoky, orange, later oolong tea…

Palate

Sweet dried seaweed, roasted banana, pepper, sour berries (like a cranberry), fresh tobacco, slightly peated…

Finish

Peated, spicy, sherry, raisin, licorice root, sweet ginger…

Score

88/100
