In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 85. My notes state a sweet and easy-to-drink dram without specific highlights.
[December, 2018] To do a proper tasting note I have another sample tonight. It confirms my old notes with a nice old style nose and a rather unimpressive but easy-to-sip taste. Nothing special about it, except that it is a Littlemill...
The colour is yellow gold and the nose offers a Traditional Scotch profile with lots of overripe fruits (cantaloupe, peaches, apples), honeys, barley sugars and waxy as well as oily and chalky-mineral aromas. There are some spices too but the woods are rather shy here. Actually, this is not bad at all and certainly better than most of today's wood-driven noses (to me) - but it all depends whether one preferes the modern or the traditional whisky styles.
The taste is (compared to the nose) rather unimpressive on sweet (mainly barley sugars) and bitter (tannins) flavours with some shy fruits and spices. This is easy to drink but not more. Water is not recommended as it just flattens the dram.
The dram arrives warming but not coating on the palate with a minor drying feeling (metals). The finish is short and adds no new impression - just a minor drying moment pops up towards the end again (metals and tannins).
