Whisky Reviews for Littlemill 1992 CA

22 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.74 points

  1. Dirk scored this whisky 86 points Super Administrator

    Good nose, very good! start of the taste is also quite ok but it is going downhill from there. There is a bitter edge to the finish that and a rather short finish.

    There is a typical Littlemill profile but not one of the greats if you ask me.

  2. Allandale scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Like a old school.
    • Nose
      Old school tropical fruits with hints of dunnage warehouse.
      Becomes quite creamy.
    • Taste
      Rich and chewy, bright citrus fruits with waxy mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Long and lingering syrupy fruit notes with a slight oliness and faint damp earth.

  3. LukeFive scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Just had a sample but liked it very much. Nice summer dram
    • Nose
      89 89
      The nose is sweet lemon drizzle cake , limoncelo, tropical fruits ( Ripe pineapple, papaya ) and the oak is very well behaved, vanilla pods, whiff of dunnage warehouses
    • Taste
      90 90
      The palate is soft but full, interesting and bright on artisan lemonade, and ripe and lush tropical fruits side, the oak behaves like component and isnt overpowering but adds nice soft spice. Soft and dusty the age reveals itself here.
    • Finish
      89 89
      long, juicy, fading away

    11.5
    • Nose
      creamy lemon
      a little grassy on mint
      woody, caramel again with vanilla and dried pulp
      a little waxy, a bit like the putty with which we played before!
      intense nose.
    • Taste
      exquisite fruity sweetness!
      cooked fruits, on exotic sweet fruits,
      a few herbs, the caramel again, a velvety!
      the custard with vanilla, a little acidity, then bitterness at once a little brittle!
      honey comes with dried, fragrant herbs and their stems full of dried earth.
      a little leather too, bringing back the sensation.
      the spices are not noticed.
    • Finish
      vanilla, lemon drowned in cream,
      soaked wood and another drier.
      average final to long enough, changing.

    Beautiful popcorn & Kellogg's smacks nose. Very balanced and oily with a long, fresh and nice finish!

  9. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Here, too, I like the whisky better at home than at the tasting. One of the better littlemill I've tried so far. Very smooth in the mouth, thoroughly tasty and without misnotes.
    • Nose
      starts very nicely, creamy, light, vanilla, floral, grassy, definitely sweet, with honey, a slight acidic orange note is above everything, or rather grapefruit, a little malt, a hint of coconut, yoghurt, cereals, I have to try the Bircher muesli again
    • Taste
      creamy, sweet, here too bluish, grassy, yellow fruit, honey, vanilla, which dominates the floral, and the sweetness, very pleasing, then again the tart grapefruit, but only as an undertone, then also coconut, now not super intense, but optimal to drink
    • Finish
      creamy, lots of vanilla, tart, dry, floral, sweetness only on the palate
