  5. St. Pauli scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    As always: very fruity, herbal and mineral.
    • Nose
      Fruity, but also mineral and grassy. Peach, pineapple, apple, orange, grass, oatmeal cookies, mint, wet stones, vanilla, some pine resin and pepper.
    • Taste
      Oily, fruity (more towards tropical fruit, like mango, passion fruit), herbal (grass, mint), honey, vanilla, wood and pepper.
    • Finish
      Pepper, herbs, peach, pineapple, mango. It gets a little bitter on ginger, unfortunately.

  10. Bishlouk scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A very good Littlemill as a whole, from the second sip. A bit difficult to access (compared to other Littlemill) at first glance, however.
    • Nose
      Typical Littlemill nose: fresh, grassy, ​​fruity.
      Sweet citrus, dry pear, fresh grass, and even some forest moss in the fall.
    • Taste
      The fruitiness (pear, citrus) is very present, but a bit too much bitterness of apple peel too.
      This bitterness becomes more discreet from the second sip, fortunately. The oily and soft side then appears.
    • Finish
      An alcoholic kick at the end of the mouth, the bitterness vanishes. A slight wooded drought settles quietly.
