  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Deserves a lot of aeration. Very friendly, flirt with 90.
    • Nose
      White fruit, hay, dry grass. Artichokes.
      With aeration, a little exotic fruits. Camphor.
    • Taste
      On the palate, light, round, red fruit, slight perspiration.
    • Finish
      Finale on the fruit syrup. More and more exotic with aeration

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Cherry, raisin and caramel. Undiluted there's not much of the typical Littlemill style, that needs some water to break through.
    • Taste
      Cherry, mocha, grapefruit and oak.
    • Finish
      Mocha, cherry, toffee, blood orange and hazelnut paste.

    A very good whisky, but far from the best Littlemill I have ever tasted! Enthusiasm: Nose 3/5 Mouth and final 4/5 Note made on a sip, during a tasting evening. Whisky n ° 1586
    • Nose
      After a note cardboard not very good, we find the typical herbs Littlemill, walnuts, woody sherry.
    • Taste
      Juicy and delicate, fruity and spicy, I find my marks.
    • Finish
      In the direct line of the mouth.

    Maybe the distillery character is masked by the big cask influence, but it's a great whisky nonetheless.
    • Nose
      Strong sherry casn influence with stewed red fruits, cocoa, chocolate, marzipan, leather. Slightly herbal, minty, after a while greener notes of flowers and grass emerge.
    • Taste
      Beautiful frutiness of apricots and peaches complemented by the sherry cask additions of chocolate, caramel, espresso and wood spices.
    • Finish
      Quite long, very powerful and mouthwarming on spices and chocolate, truffles and pralines.

    From Whiskyfun:

    Littlemill 21 yo 1989/2011 (51,3%, The Whisky Agency, refill sherry hogshead, 239 bottles)  Colour: gold. Nose: starts on a great combination of slightly austere mineral and grassy notes with more extravagant fruits such as tangerines and papayas. Goes on with more hay, ripe peaches, greengages and whiffs of fresh ink. A little more vanilla and marzipan after a while. Nice complexity. Mouth: a rich fresh fruitiness and notes of green spices and… grass as well as a little ‘green’ coffee from the sherry. There are raisins and prunes as well but they’re not big whereas the coffee grows bolder by the minute. Interesting combination of cofeeish and lemony notes, quite unusual. Finish: rather long, more toasted/roasted, with quite some Ovaltine in the aftertaste. Comments: an unusual Littlemill, thanks to the sherry. A variant to try. SGP:552 - 89 points.
