Expert Junior goran Note
20 Jan 2016 11:07 pm
goran gave this whisky 90 points

From Whiskyfun:

Littlemill 20 yo 1992/2012 (54.8%, Archives, bourbon hogshead, cask #44, 339 bottles) Five stars Colour: straw. Nose: it’s well in the style of some other 1992s I could try, that is to say rather less ‘emphatically fruity’ than earlier vintages, with also more grassy and mineral/oily touches that remind us of earlier Littlemills. So we’re somewhere between passion fruits/grapefruits and linseed oil/paraffin. A little clay and broken branches as well, violets (flowers). With water: would you think ink and grapefruit juice would mix well? Here’s the answer: yes. Mouth (neat): a different profile this time, the expected fruits are much louder. Lemons and beeswax, pink grapefruits, lemon balm and touches of coriander. I must say this is pretty perfect. Great, full body. With water: swims like a champ. A feeling of zesty fullness, if I may say so. Mango and grapefruit juice. Finish: long, very zesty, ultra-clean and, it seems, with something of, wait, Clynelish? Comments: one of these Riesling-malts that I enjoy so much. SGP:641 - 90 points.

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Sweet, subtle. Vanilla, pisang goreng. Later more fruits like pear and melon. A bit malty as well. Extremely nice.

Taste

Bitter sweet. A lot of layers. Too much for my skills to say something sensable about it. Something to single out: almonds.

Finish

Long, very long. Melons and pears.

Comments

Very nicely balanced, layered whisky. A subtle tyrant.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

C'est herbeux, printanier; cela me fait penser à un champ de blé encore vert. Résine. Des odeurs qui se croisent et se recroisent, un délice.

Taste

Citron confit, céréales douces, agrumes, miel, cire. C'est lisse sur
la langue. Extrêmement complexe et plaisant.

Finish

Interminable. Vineux, des picotements plein la bouche.

Comments

Quelle claque ! Une révélation. Une complexité incroyable, un
délice de chaque instant, aucune perte de goût ni d'odeur sur la durée.
L'alcool est superbement intégré.

The best Littlemill I ever had. A perfect nose, a superb taste and multiple layers. A long aftertaste. Strongly recomended if you like Littlemill. A very good bottle at a very good price.

Nose

Oh, yes! Wonderfully complex nose on all kinds of citrus (mostly grapefruit and blood oranges) and tropical fruits like melon, figs and passion fruit. Waxy, reminiscent of the better Clynelish. Grass and lamp oil in the background. Something milky, that I cannot quite pinpoint. Have you ever cut a cactus and smelled that juice? Reminds me of that. Tiger balm. This is stunning.

Taste

On the palate it is equally complex. Again very waxy. The citrus clearly takes the lead (pink grapefruit!), followed closely by green apples, coconut and mango juice. Very zesty and spicy on coriander and liquorice.

Finish

The finish is long and zesty, but it does leave the mouth completely dry.

Comments

Wow! This Littlemill is written with the L of Legendary. Thanks, Manny, what a wonderful liquid!

Nose

Very complex, waxy, sweet and sour fruits: grapefruit, blood oranges, melons, figs, cut grass and cactus

Taste

A lot of layers here: a strong sour start: grapefruit and green apple, then a grain layer with some glue, finally a creamy cocoa flavor comes. Quite incredible!

Finish

Clear, long, dry and fruity

Comments

Very very nice whisky. Littlemill distillery, please join my favorites. :)
