    Except there doesn't seem to be anything on the web site about the rye whiskey, just the Millstone Single Malt.

    $56 bucks from Whisky Exchange.

    I'd pick up a bottle if I was in Europe, don't really want to pay for shipping over here though.

    Re: Dutch rye whisky

    This 5 year old Dutch rye looks very interesting. While the concept of a Dutch rye may seem strange, In fact a roggen genever (rye genever) has been made by numerous producers in the past, and in general, the traditional spirit of Holland, genever gin, is very similar. The part of genever that is distilled out at a low proof, often in pot stills (thus the traditional part, a la malt whisky or bourbon), is made from a mixture of grains in which rye makes a telling appearance. No doubt in the past rye may have been the majority grain, and still can be, depending on availability and proclivity of the maker. Juniper traditionally is a flavoring in genever but its use is optional and some genever doesn't use it, e.g., Filliers in Belgium. By stating whisky on the label, I think probably the distiller is saying, this product is composed all or partly of a rye mash and distilled out around 150 proof or less. And also, it is aged, but again some genever always was. It may taste similar to U.S. straight rye but a factor here is whether it received new barrel aging.

    The google translation of that page says, "Use is made of roasted new American white oak barrels for a smooth taste to the spiciness of the rye compliment."

    I'm not sure if "roasted" means "toasted" or "charred" in whiskey-speak. Any native Dutch speakers here?

    Sorry, wrong product. That page is for their "Single Malt Whiskey," made entirely from malted barley like Scotch. We are interested in the Dutch Rye Whisky, a different product, and one of four items shown on their main whisky page. The english version of that page, here, has no detailed info.

    Re: Dutch rye whisky

    The product description for the malt whisky states in effect that new charred barrels or barrels "used one time" are used. Perhaps a mix is used for both whiskeys, or all one or the other, we really don't know from the website, I agree. It is possible all new charred wood is used for the rye certainly, and since that is the American approach and they called it rye whiskey, maybe they did that.
