Whisky Reviews for Littlemill 1992 DD

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.63 points

  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A solid and relatively lightly cask-influenced Littlemill that represents the style well, but could be more complex. There are better ones among the >20yo indy Littlemills.
    • Nose
      Raw pears and varnished wood. The oak's softer and more refined compared to the 12yo OB. A bit of sweat or something else farmy, some sandalwood, and a bit of lemon, A few drops of water make it lemon juice. The citrus bombardment lasts a while, after which it becomes buttery, with green cardamom, and lemon-almond milk hand lotion.
    • Taste
      On the tongue, well behaved and balanced, with no hint of being over 46 %. Oily and sweet, a pear-honey mix, but there's a little bit of sawdust that brings it down some.
    • Finish
      Long, with pears and oiliness.

    It is a great cask selection for Littlemill. I've tried the OB 21 year olds.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Pineapple, marshmallow, lemon, this has what I consider a classic Littlemill nose.
    • Taste
      93 93
      marshmallow licorice, lemon, some stone fruit, warming and smooth
    • Finish
      90 90
      peach, pistachio, peanut, slight pepper, some licorice does appear on the finish in subsequent tastings. Water can diffuse the pepper for those who want less, but the pepper remains solid at CS.

    Nose:

    First, something untypical for a Lowlander, some lavender honey - then perfume, almond syrup, grated orange peel, white chocolate, creme brulee, ginger candies, lemon cake, a mix of exotic fruits, butter biscuits, wax

    Taste:

    Mild and waxy, it is oily in the mouth, behind it a nice vanilla. Sweet and tasty, with the lemon swinging in the background. On the second sip I have some almonds and vanilla pudding with exotic fruits.

    finish:

    Medium-long and warm, the oak now hangs beautifully on the palate, also comes with a grassy note, finally the aroma of caramel in the mouth remains.

    Conclusion. A wonderful Littlemill, which really makes something and opens up a lot of beautiful facets.

    [December, 2013]  I found this dram in an advents calendar sampled by MaRa.

    In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  I took no detailed notes.
