Littlemill directement affilié aux beaux petits-moulins !

Un nez très appétissant, persil plat, baies rouges et cumin... une belle fraîcheur d'été ! 

En bouche l'herbe laisse un peu la place a la marmelade Old orange de  Wilkin & sons mélangée à une pointe de Lemon curd puis agrémenté de muesli. j'adore !!!!

La finale est encore meilleure ! Arlequin (fruits confits, térébenthine) et Ricola (herbe et sucre candi) très bien maîtrise.

 Don Quichotte n'a qu'a biens se tenir !
Merci MARS !!!

Tasted by Serge / Whiskyfun in May 2013:

 Littlemill 24 yo 1988/2013 (50.3%, The Whisky Agency, refill bourbon hogshead, 309 bottles) Five stars

Colour: gold.

Nose: this is more complex than the others, less straight, wider... Bags of lemons as usual, also herbs such as parsley (I also get, I swear, a little soy sauce and balsamic vinegar while this is no sherry wood), touches of dairy cream and then distinct notes of young sauvignon. As I said, this one's a little more complex so far.

Mouth: perfect unfolding. A perfect fruit salad with oranges, tangerines, lemons... And a few slices of pineapple, a little candy sugar and some caramelised barley. Yeah, should that exist, does it?

Finish: long, perfect, candied citrus fruits. Comments: perfect age, perfect spirit, perfect wood that lets the spirit talk. We're reaching perfection. SGP:641 - 90 points.

I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me, than a full frontal lobotomy.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Warming, sweet, aromatic and fruity with vanilla at first nosing. Creamy vanilla ice-cream with strawberry sauce and sweet lemonade. Clean and tasty. An excellent nose.

Taste

Starts smooth and sweet, then becomes more powerful with oranges and ripe lemons. Orange peels, orange marmalade on burnt toast. A little bit of caramel from the Bourbon wood.

Finish

Medium long with the pleasant bitterness of grapefruits. A dry and slightly bitter aftertaste.

Comments

Almost perfect - recommended.
