100% Tasting Fun.

Zuidam Distillery was founded in 1975 in the Netherlands by Fred van Zuidam. The beginnings were humble. It took them over 10 years before the business started taking off – that is after Fred's wife Helene started designing the packaging for the products. These days the distillery is run by their two sons Patrick and Gilbert, however father Fred is still involved in all recipes and mother Helene continues to do the design. The family uses local windmills for the production of malted barley, helping preserve an important Dutch heritage of the World famous windmills. 

Zuidam Millstone 100 Rye Whisky is a 100 proof, 100 months old, 100% Rye Grain, 100% Small Batch and 100% handmade Rye Whisky. A different take on Rye, indeed. We found a chocolatey feel to it, which we haven't discovered in American Rye's before.

Daniel
Daniel,
Aroma: wood, faint hint of pepper, slight tinge of rubbing alcohol. Taste:. Peppery spice strong, warmth that is almost hot. On ice: spice is subdued, oak comes through, hint of sweetness. Overall great! I would be happy with a bottle of this on my shelf!
 
Erik
Erik,
Peppery at first but a lot of citrus and caramel at the end. Too strong to have straight. Best over ice and a few stirs.

Robert,
Inspection: Nice Golden color. A good stick to the side walls of the glass. Aroma: Very smooth, Strong Toasted Oak, and Vanilla. Reminds me of The Holidays. Taste: Very Spicy, and Pepper after taste. Not my favorite Exhale: Also very Spicy. A bit much. Overall: Not for me. Aroma smelled so good, but the taste and exhale is just too spicy and peppery for my liking.

Wilford,
My favorite of the three. Great aroma, almost a licorice scent. Spicy, sweet, nutty, with a wonderful lingering aftertaste. If I'm going to drink Rye, this is the one I want.

Very interesting chocolate taste. Definetely worth a try!
 
Dean
Dean,
There is just nothing special to this rye. Lacking the typical rye flavor and having an overpowering spiciness to it. A cap full of water really helps to bring out depth in this rye.
 
Brad
Brad,

Very good Rye. Delicious sweet chocolate, vanilla notes, nice smooth finish, creamy texture. I enjoyed this sample, will definitely grab a bottle of this.
 
Micah
Micah,
Very interesting, tones of citrus notes on the nose and a sort of orange quality, I would be interested to see how this played with chocolate bitters. Kind of a holiday chocolate covered orange, but whiskey!!!
