May is Whisky Review Month at WhiskySuggest.com. May is Whisky Review Month at WhiskySuggest.com. During this month, we’ll share 10 of the most entertaining, informative, unique or spot-on whisk(e)y reviews with the rest of the world. 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.)
Salted caramel, bright sherry, heavily roasted barley, smoky, orange, later oolong tea…
Sweet dried seaweed, roasted banana, pepper, sour berries (like a cranberry), fresh tobacco, slightly peated…
Peated, spicy, sherry, raisin, licorice root, sweet ginger…
