    Reviewed by Serge on Whiskyfun.com (14/4/2015):

    Littlemill 21 yo 1992/2014 (52.9%, The Whisky Mercenary, bourbon cask) Five stars Colour: gold. Nose: it’s a slightly more aromatic, fatter, jammier Littlemill after the Archives, but styles are – of course – similar. This cask was probably a little more active, since I can find a touch of menthol and a little more vanilla, but other than that, this is a fruit exotique extravaganza. Also big table Muscat grapes, then a little more clay, chalk and paraffin, which adds texture. Another irrefutable one. With water: this is pure multi-vitamin fruit juice. Mouth (neat): pure Littlemillness (read above) plus something a little more almondy/waxy. Ideally, some great Slivovitz could taste like this. With water: we got extremely close to the Archives. Both are almost undistinguishable when at roughly the same strengths. Finish: same comments. Comments: I’m afraid this session will be a bed of roses indeed. Let’s see of we’ll manage to go… under 90 points ;-). SGP:651 - 90 points.

    Littlemill is one of those distilleries that make me regret I didn't start reading books on whisky earlier on to absorb knowledge on and appreciation for these Champions League players. My first meet and greet with Littlemill (a 1991 bottled by The Nectar and La Maison du Whisky) had an incredible wow-factor. This Mercenary bottling walks the same path.

    This 1992 Littlemill went on sale for €115. Very reasonable for a 21 year old bottling from an almost legendary and closed distillery. Sometimes I hate my own stubbornness that keeps me from buying bottles in the > €100 range...
    • Nose
      The Lowlands freshness clearly wants to say hello! Grass, vanilla and young white grapes prelude almond pastries with sugar icing. Add the scent of a glass of white chocolate milk and you are all set for a fab evening. Don't forget the scented candles with vanilla, lemon and peach sorbet.

      Water enhances the almond flavours. An old fashioned frangipane pie with a very light medicinal touch. Or fruit tea with mandarin oranges.
    • Taste
      Freshly cut grass and vanilla are again the dominant flavours on the palate. The whisky gets creamier with notes of lemon tart and sweetened whipped cream. Oak, grapes and lemon rind add a small touch of bitterness.

      A dash of water gives way to a spicy sweetness with the usual suspects from a bourbon cask: dried bananas and coconut.
    • Finish
      A slightly drying aftertaste refreshes the palate for the next sip. Oak chips, citrus and dried banana flakes.
