    A very special Littlemill, but certainly has its charm, just a typical representative that I would drink only in 2cl portions a day.
    • Nose
      Grassy, ​​licorice, some vanilla, grapefruit peel, flower fields slightly dried, hay, light malt, some apple peel
    • Taste
      Grass, hay, zucchini, thyme, rosemary and Brenesseltee, very vegetable garden, nuts, vanilla, grapefruit and some peach vllt with shell
    • Finish
      Long, bitter with hints of fruit, grapefruit, paprika, hay and grass, thyme

  11. katarn_rb scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Lots of vanilla, the Littlemill grass note, citrus fruits (blood orange and grapefruit), summer flowers

    Mouth: More grapefruit, but also sweeter notes such as lychee or peach, caramel and a hint of herbs

    Finish: fruity and long

  23. Bishlouk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A good Littlemill, nice and balanced. But less '' waouw '' than in my memory.

    Corrected score from 90 to 88.
    • Nose
      Back on this Littlemill, in other circumstances ...

      Nose: Fruity (pear, yellow apple) and herbaceous (freshly cut grass). Vanilla. A sweet and engaging nose.
    • Taste
      White fruits dominate, helped by peppery spices. Herbaceous hints pass at times.
    • Finish
      Medium and slightly salty. The fruits fade gradually.

  24. Bishlouk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Pear, banana, vanilla. Nose powerful and present.
    • Taste
      Sweet and syrupy mouth. A lot of vanilla. Sweet pear. Some spices and citrus zests.
    • Finish
      Long finish on pear and exotic fruits. Some citrus fruits.
