    This one's clearly overrated. Samples at:

  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Very obviously Littlemill and one of the better ones I've tried. Good depth, nice creamy mouthfeel, and quite fruity. It's as good as some of best Littlemills released 7-8 years ago when they were in their mid-20's. I remember those were perhaps fresher, fruitier and sometimes "zestier" but this 30yo does have better depth of flavor. I have a few more of those in the bunker, so I don't feel the need to buy this particular one even though it's still available at its initial retail price. The price itself maybe a reason...

  3. malt templar scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    The taste does not deliver what the nose promises. Very nice fruity nose that disappears a bit in the mouth, but the overwhelming finish makes up for everything.
    In short ... a good Littlemill with a price tag, but yes, they won't get any cheaper ...
