    Lovely stuff but a bit pricy nowadays.
    The 2nd release is just as good, if not better, so if you want to try an original bottling from an older Littlemill then go for this one. It is a bit cheaper.
    If you are a Littlemill fan you have to have both obviously.

    This one gives you everything you expect. It is fruity, sweet, smooth, a bit spicy in taste and finish and then slightly oaky. Overall a really pleasant experience.

    91 points from my point of view. You can get comparable Littlemill bottlings from independent bottlers at a more reasonable price though, but surely they don't come with all the prestige added to the bottle. Usually I would now take some points off because of the price but since this one is really very good and because we probably won't see too many original releases like this one anymore I will let it have its 91 points.

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2014/littlemill-21y-die-beiden-black-dumpy-bottles-2012-2014-kopf-an-kopf-33806/ Color: straw yellow
    Nose: Voluminous, fresh and round, with lots of lemon, honey, caramel and slightly underlaid gum. There are also fruity aromas of green gooseberries, pineapples, ripe bananas and avocados. Slightly spicy nutmeg and wallpaper paste.
    Taste: Creamy-fat and spicy, with floral notes and a salty freshness of mint and lemon balm. Fruity and juicy mango and pineapple flavors, vanilla, spicy wood and creamy herbal quark complete the palate.
    Finish: Medium to long - based on full-bodied herbal tea, notes of stinging nettle, some wild honey and coarse, brown sugar cubes.
    90 points (nose: 89 / taste: 90 / finish: 90)

      hints of stone fruit, lemon, and marshmallow, not as distinct as the 24 yr olds, or other 21 yr olds, namely the ACLA, 24yo, 52.9, Nectar 1992/21, 49.8%, and 1989/24 yo LL, 50.4%.
    • Taste
      94 94
      balanced stone fruit, marshmallow, licorice, pepper, but more going on with grapefruit.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Balances out, with the stone fruit, citrus and marshmallow fading out into licorice and pepper in the end.

    For me one of the best littlemills, nice grass note, honey just everything that makes a littlemill for me.
    The color in the glass and the first nosing is great, let stand 20min and he is perfect. Very gentle and full of aromas, wonderfully rounded. The presentation is of course great with the wooden box.
    For me just TOP !!
