Nez expressif vanille, coco, caramel. Bouche fruitée très bien équilibrée. Finale longue sur un mélange du fruit et de l’herbacé. Plutôt bon mais pas spécialement mon profil.

Nose: Lot of coconut and tropical fruit over here, with some old moist wood, which led me to think it’s 20’s or so, a hint of melon and maybe papaya. I loved this nose, it’s very very good and the wood is yummy.

Palate: Some more fruit (as the nose suggests) with the lovely coconut and a nice dose of old wet wood, that makes it even more appealing to me. It’s a solid dram! I do like it very much.

Finish: Lots of oak wood, touches of coconut and vanilla.

Nose

Vanilla, coconut shavings and marzipan. Fairly sweet. It also has a nutty quality and is a bit gluey, but it settles down after a couple drops of water, which also makes it fruitier. Apple and apple sauce, yum!

Taste

Citrus, or lemon. Lovely fruity whisky. A bit zesty as well and the coconut makes another appearance. A bit peppery, oaky and slightly dry. Some herbs, koriander.

Finish

Pineapple and apple. Some bitterness. Lovely finish, could've been a bit longer.

Comments

A lovely whisky. Once again confirms why I like Littlemill as much as I do.

Nose

A nice mix of vanilla cake, peaches, canteloupe and lemon rind. Water amps up the fruitiness and brings out a few minty/eucalyptussy notes.

Taste

The fruit explodes. Spicy and slightly grainy. Vanilla cream and dried powdered ginger. With water the fruitiness grows in the taste as well.

Finish

Caramellized sugar, crème brûlée. The fruitiness stays. With water more dried spices in the finish (ginger powder, white peppercorns).

Comments
Notes based on a blind sample. Smells and tastes very Littlemillian to me, so let's pretend it is one. I think it's a solid example of the distillery character without the dirty edges that some Littlemills can have.

Wow, what can I say. This is a very nice whisky. Strong taste, it is still there after 5 minutes. Excellent. This was a sample I received from Whiskybase. Thanx guys.
