  7. Allandale scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very nice very lovely. A good lowlander.
    • Nose
      All kinds of fruit: Citrus,grapefruit,peaches, orange, but also vanilla, cream porridge,grainy, sweet caramel, complex.
    • Taste
      Fruity again, peach,grapes, oranges, grains, peppery, and cream vanilla, toffee sweet.
    • Finish
      Long for me, toffee again, grapes,oranges, figs, vanilla and lime tones.

  8. Bishlouk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very typical, very well balanced. A very good Littlemill, but a little lacking, in my opinion, of surprise.
    • Nose
      once is not custom, I recognize Littlemill directly. Small spring flowers, sap, plant stem and yellow fruit galore. A herbaceous dryness, too; and even swirls of white alcohol.
    • Taste
      First a beautiful fruity is announced. Peach, apricot, mango. Yellow fruit coulis. A strand of rhubarb in the back. A discreet herbaceous. A pinch of spices, non-invasive, in the background.
    • Finish
      The spices disappear, the dry plant puts forward, while the fruit is dying.

  12. thijs100 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    With a little more balance on the palate, this would've scored 90 points in my book. But even still this is an excellent Littlemill.
    • Nose
      Fruity and sweet with orange flavoured candy, lemon zest and soft melon aromas. Some vanilla and almonds. In the background a hint of wet cardboard, which I find to be signature Littlemill.
    • Taste
      Citrus fruits galore, with pink grapefruit at the forefront, followed by bitter lemon. There's also some  vanilla and (green) tea in there, as well as a hint of chili pepper and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Mellow spices, grapefruit and melon. Good length.

    • Finish
      Toffee, grapefruit, grains, orange, lime, vanilla and fig.

    • Finish

  17. peathead scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This is not the best Littlemill that I`ve tasted. Abundant bourbon influences are masking the delicious flavours of Littlemill.  Even now, when the bottle is nearly empty, there is no improvement. Pity.

  18. Dutchmill scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    Frenquently there are smells and tastes in the Littlemills that are too complex to divine. This is one!
    • Nose
      Starts softly, lots of coconut, caramel, honey, marmalade, sweet pineapple, toffee, pear, white chocolate, hint of strawberry and banana candies(chemical compound: ethyl butyrate)
    • Taste
      Little bit of bitterness, toffee, caramel, oak, vanilla, cinnamon, coconut.
    • Finish
      Oak, pepper, vanilla, marmalade, coconut, hint of mint.

  19. Ruud6421 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Full and sweet. Strong. A lot of white fruits. Especially (Galia) melon). Very nice.
    • Taste
      Starts smooth, ends tingly. Also very nice. Fully flavoured. Green tea. Sweet.
    • Finish
      Long. Pear and Vanilla.

  20. whioli scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    one of the fattest littlemill I ever had. if you are looking for deep oak, vanilla and bourbon aromas, this is the place for you.
    • Nose
      first a little musty .. flies quickly and then opens the bourbon barrel with round oak notes and caramel, for me he smells older than he is.
      The 56% you do not smell it.
    • Taste
      now the alcohol is there, the sweetness, vanilla and caramel come through and are beautifully smooth on the tongue. Very heavy and oily .. would have blind and typed with the info Lowlander on a Bladnoch.
    • Finish
      the sweet notes disappear and the barrel stays in the mouth, round and pleasant, for me no false mark.

  24. fritzbrause scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Absolute wonderful nose! Loads of citrus and fresh fruits. Very interesting sweetness and clear hints of almonds. The palate is an explosion of pepper that goes on to the citrus and sweet fruits again. Long lingering finish. Great stuff! Goes into my hall of fame! Thank you guys for choosing this cask!
