  1. Bachess scored this whisky 91 points Super Administrator

    I'm glad a real expert loves this whisky too!!!Littlemill is under appreciated for a long time now. But almost all the 2010 releases where very good (in my opinion of course).

    This one needs time to develop & smooth out. Could imagine this
    being a great swimmer. Thanks Menno!
    • Nose
      First of: grassy, dry oak, faint glue, very austere/minimal & somewhat savoury, maybe even with a slight smokeyness ? (83)
      bit later: turning a sweeter (out of nowhere... interesting...), brown
      sugar, soggy oatmeal, sprinkle of vanilla, sandalwood, wet table cloth,
      cucumber, very faint juicy fruit bubblegum underneath, and a tiny bit of
      smoke occasionally again (85)
      Later: fruity components turn a notch
      louder & add nicely to the balance, succade/citronade, apricots,
      apples, quince, also some almond marzipan (88)
    • Taste
      dry biting wood, quite alcoholic with a pepppery edge, solvent, oak, somewhat herbal. (83)
      much more pleasant, the rough alc & harsh wood seems to have calmed
      down, now there's a very nice attack of fruits & wax right away,
    • Finish
      once the initial attack has faded there's some oat cakes, faint lemon, very faint wood polish wax, . (85)
      Later: fruit notes & wax stick around and are joined by creamy vanilla. (88)

    I have really grown to like this distillery.  A great example of what a good cask and some age can do to the Littlemill spirit.
    • Nose
      Light and a little malty, with hints of spiciness (ginger root, cinnamon, celery salt, white pepper).  Vanilla butter cream icing. Lemon scented furniture polish.
    • Taste
      Mmmmmm.  Grapefruit and lemon.  Star fruit.  Nice oak presence. Anise seed.  Fades with more lemon, and some pepper.
    • Finish
      Long and spicy (more of that white pepper).  Lemon peels, then dried hay.

    What a positive surprise for a Littlemill. My fifth Littlemill and I never had such a good one before.
    • Nose
      Warming and fresh with a fruity and malty character. Strong notes of applecake, vanilla and wax. Also lots of Austrian "Almdudler" lemonade. Very nice.
    • Taste
      Warming, starting on "Almdudler" and - wow !!! - apple strudel with vanilla sauce. Becomes very fruity with a mixture of exotic fruits (tangerines, mangos, passion fruits). Nice spicy- and maltyness. A beautiful and complex taste.
    • Finish
      Long, warming and tasty.
