Millstone 20 1996 Virgin Oak

Thanks to /u/devoz  for the sample. Virgin oak whiskies and I aren’t on each other’s Xmas card list. Don’t get me wrong: I’m not saying I don’t fuck with them, but I don’t go out of my way to fuck with them. First off if you think slivers in your hand are painful… oh, we’re not going […]

Millstone 100 Rye [Re-Review]

Ten days in. To the Advent Calendar. One of those things people usually post as they drink, but I’m all like “that’s too much, I’m busy” and did it two months later because I’m behind and stuff. So this is Advent Dram #10. I’ve had some close guesses on these mystery drams. However, my wife […]

Originally started […]

Millstone 100 Rye

Das is some vet friggin whisky Gast! Chillen man, I’m going to lay it all down. Don’t get your Kut all worked up! Well there’s my attempt to learn Netherland slang. Anything else is pretty messed up and I’m pretty sure I fucked up “kut” up there. What? Oh, yeah, I’m here to review whisky […]

Millstone Lightly Peated

A country’s heritage is a hard thing for me to grasp. On the one hand, I love the idea of different communities taking up ideas they have cultivated, thus avoiding a homogenous collective that could miss better or different ways of doing things. On the other hand, I see the results of blind devotion to […]
