Whisky Reviews for Littlemill 1985 VM

  1. grinface scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    I've had it in my glass before. I was much more exuberant then. The impressions at the whisky fair were certainly present. Still: I like this wonderfully fruity style. Some whisky nerds say that Littlemill is more of a fruit brandy than a whisky. I don't care, I'll drink it if you don't want it ;-)

      Slightly grassy notes begin. Then it becomes wonderfully fruity. Yellow and green fruits in particular. Oranges, grapefruit, kiwi, apple come to mind. Also grains and a little vanilla.

      With a spicy note, it first pinches the tongue. There's chilli, pepper, and ginger. When it has calmed down after a few turns and the creamy, silky texture has spread in the mouth, these notes evaporate. Then a fruitiness spreads with a few bitter substances in it. As if you were processing pods and kernels. In addition, a nice sweetie. Precisely.

      A fresh bread, I have both black bread and baguette, with a yellow fruit jelly on it. In addition a few toasted aromas. There is also apple and green tea. Some grain again. Maybe a few nuts too. The length is great.

    Bourbon casked Littlemill in very good quality.
    • Nose
      Warming and fresh, with apples and vanilla notes at first nosing. Actually a lot of apples!  After a while some grainy notes become obvious to me as well. Nice and pleasant.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly powerful and alcoholic on caramel and fruity aromas at first mouthfeel. Notes of sweet cider, tea and spicy pepper are dominating. Very good.
    • Finish
      Long and satisfying. Remains clean and pleasant.
