  1. Schnappsdrossel scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Color: White Wine

    Nice nose, the rest is not a revelation, but it becomes clear what Littlemill has on it. Had fit well in the UCF Collection. 85P
    • Nose
      Grappa? Something wrong with my glasses? ... Nee, artificial Haribo pineapple note, lime, freshly mown grass. Sweet, almost rotten pear, oatmeal. You have to keep your nose deeper into the glass, air is also needed, but weak is different. Lemon ice cream. Elderflower syrup.
    • Taste
      Thin, alcohol is well present for 46%, lime juice and oatmeal, some mint, dry wood. Canned pineapple.
    • Finish
      Short. Dry wood, black coffee. Furniture polish. Peach juice.

    • Taste
      Banana, coconut, almonds, marzipan and pale malt, vanilla, lavender, baby and toast, cinnamon and young oak, looks like a 14-16y

    BLIND TASTING
    Tip: I like the finish best
    - Speyside
    - 43 to 46%
    - 17 to 21 years
    - Bourbon Cask
    • Nose
      Almond milk, oily, yellow fruits, pears and mangoes, lemons, like a summery cocktail, honey, ripe bananas, floral, while light and sweet throughout
    • Taste
      heavy, sweet texture, honeydew melon, with herbs, quite woody
    • Finish
      rather long, initially with a delicate spiciness, tingling for a long time on the cheeks and at the tip of the tongue

  6. didi1893 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The nose starts with enormous fruit and cereal flavors. In taste, these elements are almost gone, tainted woody notes dominated. A very interesting malt, probably with a port or Bordeaux finish. Unusual and tasty.
    • Nose
      Blind tasting: sweet fermented fruits immediately pour out of the glass. Cereal notes and a typical port nose are also noticeable. The nose becomes slightly sprittig and the alcohol makes itself felt. A touch of glue, then again intense fruit flavors.
    • Taste
      Grain notes and now rather tart fruity notes dominate the first impression. Dark wood tones appear before the alcohol strikes with full force. Bizzling and tingling are the result. More and more austere and discreet bitter wood flavors are added, a bit tart fruit and subtle sharpness are now quite present.
    • Finish
      With a slight bizzelling and tart fruit and woody notes, the finish begins. Tart and dull aromas now dominate the finish, fruity elements try in vain to push themselves into the foreground. A mixture of bitter wood and bitter walnut taste ends the finish.
