    I'm a fan of Littlemill (" Noooon, really? Ha well, we did not notice !! "), and yet this one is only the 3rd official (after the 12 years and the 25 years) that I taste . And he is completely in the usual markers that I know and love. It's very good all the time. Too bad the price is prohibitive and prohibitive.
    • Nose
      Immediately, I recognize Littlemill and what I like in the products of this distillery: basket of white fruits and yellow cut fine and juicy. Hyper fruity all along, and hyper greedy. A very light floral and sweet malted cabbage in the background, but they struggle to compete with the fruity that dominates everything.
    • Taste
      Here too, it continues. Fruit on every floor, always juicy and greedy. In syrup, compote, in all the greedy and sweet forms. A fine pinch of spicy plant after a while, slightly green, which brings a bit of freshness.
    • Finish
      The fresh and menthol plant is more assertive at this level. The fruity remains, nevertheless, always well present. Dry malt sneaks too.

    Nose: Lime juice and avocados, sweet cotton candy, juice of pickled canned citrus fruits, honey and again (preserving) gum in the background. To the lemon juice comes a light cinnamon touch, vanilla sugar, caramel and again green aromas.
    Taste: Sweet and fruity (lime and lychees) starting, but directly salty and bitter. Licorice, "After Eight" miniature leaves, fresh peppermint, various herbs, pine needles and forest notes are present in the taste. Dry and spicy continuing.
    Finish: Long - very herbaceous and tart with a light fruit base and some oak. Now salty and green, fresh notes of eucalyptus, lemon balm, sage and peppermint. The fruity and woody approaches have no chance at the end due to the powerful and fresh herbal dominance. Herb and fresh fading away (Fishermen's Friend).
    88 points (nose: 89 / taste: 86 / finish: 88)

    Lots of yellow fruits on the nose, less grassy than expected. Great creamy oily feeling in the mouth with tropical fruits
