Whisky Reviews for Littlemill 1988 CWL

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Amazing how these Littlemill's of the late 1980's appear to be really good.
    • Nose
      Lots of oloroso sweetness. Beeswax, shoe polish and some liquorice. Accessible but very enjoyable.
    • Taste
      Rich oak. Stewed fruit. Raisins and dark coffee. A little pepper as well. Quite complex.
    • Finish
      Long and lingering. Bitter-sweetness. Some fruity notes.

  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    On the nose, we are on the usual markers of Littlemill. It is not the most fruity I have felt. On the palate, however, really explosive, caramelized almonds, creamy, grassy, ​​intense, big finish.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    am thrilled
    • Nose
      Wow .. lush Sherrynote, but also vanilla, citrus and cinnamon ... great, no scent is overbearing
    • Taste
      the depth of the sherry mingles with the lightness of the lowlands, nothing bothers this successful mélange.
    • Finish
      the sherry loses, the fruity lightness prevails .. a spring meadow stays long ..
