Tasting Notes by Serge V. (Whiskyfun.com, march 17, 2014):

Colour: Pale gold.
Nose: Classic passion fruits and mangos, with a slice of banana, two quarters of tangerine and a little apple juice. Hold on, or sweet rosé cider like they now make in Brittany. No more, no less, and that’s already more than enough.
Mouth: The fruitiness is really huge, it’s actually one the most extreme fruitbombs from Littlemill I could taste, and I’ve tasted a few. It’s actually plain fruit juice, around multi-vitamin and peach/maracuja. The alcohol is only of passing interest in this context.
Finish: Quite long, now grassier, which is rather an asset as it balances the whole and makes your palate cleaner and fresher. Grapefuit skin.
Comments: A very impressive Littlemill. I had feared the source had dried up, I was wrong, apparently.
SGP:751 - 90 points.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

starts on citrus notes, especially lime rind and bergamot, than moves towards light fruits like gooseberries and peaches with some additional herbs (peppermint, Ysop) in the back and faint overtones of elderflower blossoms

Taste

very fruity and juicy (mainly white currant now), refreshing, dry riesling of the highest quality, acidic, some harmoniously integrated tannins 

Finish

a long decrescendo, a pleasent dry fruitiness stays in the mouth

Comments

If you like dry fruitiness (think of 60ies Bourboncask-Bowmore, 70ies Caperdonich or 1981 Lochside) , you will love this Littlemill.
