Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Michiel,
This rye tries very hard, but it fails. There is too much heavy going on, no smoothness, no subtlety.

Yaser,
Oops, rated the wrong whisky! Spicey as hell, and interesting for it, great if you don't mind a little harshness, or want it to stand up in a cocktail

Nope. Harsh, spicy, tough.

Jason,
Nice rye, but for the price?
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Nathan,
Haven’t had many ryes but I really enjoyed this. Toasted and chocolate and grass on the nose. Pepper and cinnamon on the tongue. Finishes with good heat but doesn’t burn.

Michael,
Pepper and rye forward with smooth and lasting flavor.

Skip,
Heavy on the spice but a really great drink. Depending on the price point, this could be a really great blend for Old Fashioneds.

Augustine,
All rye. Peppery, grassy and toasty. Got a bite without too much of a burn. Got a mellow finish. Not overly harsh for a 100% rye.

Tommy,
Rye, grassy rye.

Good rye whisky

Levi,
Pretty strong kick, not for amateur whiskey drinkers.

Nicholas,
Really like this one. Rye pepper nose. Pallet is really enjoyable, typical rye notes of spice on the front that i enjoy, but then explodes into a big chocolatey oak - like a scotchy oak but the chocolate and lingering rye spice make it a bit more interesting than a run of the mill scotch

Stephen,
I love rye whisky, but this felt unpolished. A little too alcohol forward and definitely on the spicy side.
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Jason,
Spicy but smooth harsh, slow warm burn. Mild on the nose, can def taste pepper and cinnamon.

Terry,
Advent calendar. First 100% rye. Musky grassy nose. Holy cow rye. Smooth with a bit of heat. Long nice finish. Wow...did I say rye.

Maurice,
Fun and spicy, lots of great flavors, lots of cinnamon...
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Todd,
Very much a rye in a good way. Has a sweetness and really get the cinnamon.
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Kris,
Toasted notes, spice and chocolate on the nose, very pleasant. Spicy and peppery flavor, rich and tasty! A few drops of water adds even more smells and flavor.

Matthew,
Maybe closer to an 8.5 but I'm feeling generous, and I love rye and this is the first in the Advent calendar. Nose has all the grassy and herbaceous notes I expect from a rye, with a hint of chocolate. On the tongue it opens up with toasted grains and subtle licorice, finishing with cinnamon and fresh wood shavings. There is something specific in the aftertaste (which is lingering surprisingly long) which is maddeningly elusive. Some taste memory just outside my grasp.

Stephen,
Really liked this one. Lots of cinnamon

Dustin,
Holy rye Batman!!
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Julie,
I was totally prepared to hate this... I'm not usually a fan of Rye, and with this being 100% rye at 100 proof I fully expected it to be way over the top, but I've never been more glad to be wrong. I got soft oak sawdust and sweet bourbon on the nose, a bit of grass and faint muscat grape on the tongue that flows into the gentlest touch of cinnamon, rye, and pepper spice. Medium dry finish that concludes with a slightly stronger hint back to the muscat grape flavor. If I had to pick a rye, this would definitely be it.

Scott,
Very nice rye. Not too grassy and enough spice to remind you it’s the holidays. Not as hot as I would have expected for 100 proof. Really liked the whole tasting experience.

Ben,
Sweet, thick
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Eric,
Pretty good, lots of pepper with some sour candy. A little rough.
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Matthew,
Spicy, but still subtly sweet, like pie spice. Not nearly the burn I was expecting from a 100-proof rye whiskey. This whiskey was featured in "101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die," so I'm glad I got to check it off my list.

Jamie,
Horrible. Regret drinking this.
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Lea,
Pretty good for a rye. I’m just not fond of the peppery flavor in most eyes.

Briana,
Not my profile
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Jason,
Cinnamon, pepper. Cinnamon, pepper. Not your typical rye, but still not quite right for me.
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Tracy,
Spicy and a little sweet, with toast notes also - I liked it with an ice cube.

Vincent,
Advent Day 8 - A different take on rye, but I like it. Nice notes of pepper & spices on the nose & palate with hints of cinnamon and toasted oak.
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Matthew,
This is an unapologetic rye. Sweet and cinnamon up front, rye bready feel on the tongue, and that Spicey back finish. I love ryes and this was right up my alley. That said, ryes are not for everyone, but if you are a rye lover you will like this one. Great rye whiskey bottle.

Liam,
Initially sting, fades to a rich warming flavor. Spicy and dark.
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Mark,
It is better tasting than a traditional Rye, but I didn’t like the cinnamon taste. Adding a little water does open it up a little bit and makes it smoother
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
James,
Advent day 8, 2020. Very enjoyable. Blindly, not sure I would have pegged this as a rye. Nose made me think of baked bread and pretzels. Taste is pepper with heat, eventually fading to bittersweet. Not overly complex but enjoyable and with a long finish.
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Derek,
Very pleasant nose of oak and pepper. Opened with a spicy kick (but not too spicy) that turned into a surprisingly smooth and sweet, lingering finish - a richness reminiscent of a well-rounded bourbon and flavors of roasted peppers. This one was quite nice.

Thomas,
Pretty good, but not great, rye.
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Louise,
In the third sip, I felt much more of the spice and cinnamon.
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Scott,
Really liked this. A shot of water opened it right up. Very nice but as a previous reviewer said, $80-$90/ bottle is a bit steep. I’d pass at that level.

Adam,
Complex flavors throughout. Nice spice midway, I get a cocoa and sight cinnamon flavor late in the finish, which while subtle, adds a nice taste.
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
Todd,
I like this one. The price versus taste ratio is too high ($80-$90), though. I believe this is a good rye, not an exceptional rye.
Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky
James,
Memorable, strong flavors—Spicey, peppery, cinnamony. Rich, deep heat and body. Long tingle and aftertaste. Tastey but not subtle
