    [May, 2020] A quick review of a small sample....

    Littlemill was the cheapest of the cheap blending malts in Scotland for decades, mostly because of its rather chequered quality. Hence Littlemill was ignored by most whisky connoisseurs too despite a few good releases and one could buy even very old Littlemill bottles for small bucks. This completely changed with the modern whisky boom when suddenly Littlemill was "re-discovered" as a lost gem (no, it never was a gem!). Today almost all Littlemill releases fetch very high ratings - so maybe Littlemill was ahead of its time and produced a profile which is appreciated by the modern drinkers' generation?

    Sorry, but I am an old-style drinker and to me Littlemill still is completely unsexy (despite the flood of hyper-priced new releases and extraordinary scores). But if you like it, enjoy! I am not jealous.
    • Nose
      87 87
      The colour is pale gold and the nose offers the typical fat but rather simple Littlemill profile which is mainly driven by grassy and barley sugary notes with very shy fruits only. I am really not sure what could be special about this nose, obviously my olfactory cells are too dull to recognise more aromas in Littlemill malts (too bad).
    • Taste
      87 87
      The taste is barley-sugary sweet with some bitter wooden notes. The fruits and other more interesting flavours again hide in the background and are hard to identify. To my taste buds this is a very simple profile for a 27-years old, sorry folks. Do not get me wrong, this is okay and easy drinkable but nothing more (this is just my personal opinion so feel free to see this completely different).
    • Finish
      85 85
      The initial mouthfeel is warming with some hot (peppery) moments but without any significant coating effect. Accordingly, the finish is rather short with a bitter-drying end and adds no significant new impressions. Water is not needed as it just flattens the dram,

    Yes, it has that typical Littlemill 90s taste.

    So it depends on the drinker if you like that style or not. Given its price you should probably really like it.
