  1. Pollenflug scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      Full-bodied, elegant and complex Littlemill rises from my glass. The alcohol (50.9%) is perfectly integrated and not noticeable. Right at the beginning, a wonderful interplay opens its doors: sweet, floral, fruity and spicy-woody notes exude a beautiful aroma. Overripe peaches, dried orange peel, sweet apricots, floral notes, roasted malt, caramel, dark forest honey, furniture polish, candle wax, pepper and strong woody notes crystallize in the course of many minutes. The nose is very complex, exciting and harmonious - I like it very much!
    • Taste
      With a nearly syrupy texture the Littlemill wets the entire oral cavity. A wonderful sweetness runs down the cheeks, while on the tip of the tongue a noticeable Pfeffrigkeit sets in and causes a tingle. Also in the taste I register again abundant overripe peaches, sweet apricots and floral hints. Juicy grapefruit leave a sweet-sour touch. Plenty of caramel, hints of dark forest honey, dark chocolate and strong wood notes complete the multi-layered taste profile. The sweet fruit notes harmonize very well with the wood aromas and the beginning of the pepperiness for my taste. On the palate, a slight bitterness is already noticeable.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet and spicy and warm. At the beginning of the finish a slight pepperiness flashes for the last time before the sweet fruits, such as peaches, apricots and oranges in combination with caramel and honey, pick up again. Spicy oak notes let the malt finish prudently. On the palate remains a pleasant bitterness.

  9. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A lovely, weighty Lowland malt with a grassy-like character. Good balance of fruit, spice and bitter flavours. The dry oak bites a little hard on the finish, especially when diluted. Possibly one for a long summers night.I thank Douglas Laing for the sample and the photograph! https://www.whisky-connaisseur.de/tasting-notes-english/littlemill/
    • Nose
      The nose starts off with sweet barley and fruity notes of peaches, apricots, and a whiff of lychees. Flowery with hay, followed by cedarwood. Spicy notes of pepper, oak and caramelised ginger in the background.
    • Taste
      Sweet with fruity elements of apricots, peaches and oranges. This is accompanied by caramel and spicy layers of pepper, oak and ginger. The fruit returns but in a slightly bitter way - with pink grapefruit and a touch of grape seeds. Becomes a bit dry towards the warming finish.
    • Finish
      The long finish is creamy, warm and slightly dry with crisp oak, pepper and a bitter touch of grape seeds and tannins on the tail.

      With water: Fresher and vibrant on the nose when a few drops of water are added. More fruit's coming through as well as oak spice, while the flowery and hay-like flavours are tamed. Fruity but less sweet on the palate with some more bitter notes showing up. The finish is shorter with significantly dry notes of oak, grape seeds and tannins.

  10. thijs100 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Quite different from most Littlemill I've tasted, but not in a bad way. It's from a refill hogshead, and I suspect a sherry hogshead in this case. The cask influence and spirit character are nicely intertwined.
    • Nose
      A touch of cough syrup (traces of a pure pot still style) and cardboard, before transforming into sweeter notes of cane sugar, honey and pastry. Finally a whiff of furniture polish, accompanied by grass.
    • Taste
      The palate shows more of the trademark fruitiness, with grapefruit taking center stage, accompanied by oranges. All the while there's a subtle spicy layer with plenty of fudge and caramel, as well as some resin and cough syrup.
    • Finish
      Lingering oak and spices.
