Nose opens up on those delicate fruit notes and soft vanilla that you come to expect from an older Littlemill. Honeydew melon, a few slices of grapefruit and some papaya to spice things up. Very clean spirit allowing the white oak to make its mark with some wood spices tingling the nose. Some herbal tea notes of the fruity variety.
With time the nose unexpectedly becomes cinnamon rolls, fresh out of the oven.
Sweetness as soon as it hits the tongue, its that honeydew melon leaping to attention before being slapped in the face from some spice. Soft ginger spice begins to dance on the tongue along with notes of white oak. Fruitiness is there, lots of tropical fruits with even some tart berries thrown into the mix.
Holding on the palate the melon comes back, we're moving from the juicy meat to the harder part, the mantle of the melon if you will.
Finish very much on the honeydew melon still, more of the skin however with a slight bitterness in there. Slight oaky note carries on the palate, slightly dry but decent in length.
