MARTIN MILLS 24 YEARS REVIEW
Dark caramel with red highlights.
Dense and rich with notes of cherry heavy dark fruit, caramel, candy-like sweetness, leather, wood, a complex rack of baking spices and a bit of vanilla. Everything about it is warm, complex and inviting.
Dark fruit, leather, wood, dark honey, cinnamon, butterscotch heavy dark sweets, spice and a touch of candied citrus towards the end. Again, like the nose, the palate is warm, complex and inviting. If we weren’t tasting so many other amazing whiskeys that night I could have easily just sat and enjoyed this one all evening long.
Long and winding road of butterscotch heavy dark sweets, dark fruit, wood and spice.
BALANCE, BODY & FEEL
Perfectly balanced, rich full body and a heavy oily texture.
Martin Mills 24 Years is the bourbon I would drink everyday if I were the King of Earth. I would order every bottle in the land be brought to my castle and I would sink into its darkly sweet and fruity oaken arms to easy my kingly burdens. As birth would have it I’m not a king so I have happily settled for getting to enjoy a glass or three of it at the tasting and for this pauper that will do just fine. If you ever get the chance to grab yourself a sip don’t hesitate. It’s magnificent.
