- A high degree of complexity going in here in amongst the fruits, herbs, teas and sugars. The sharpness of citrus and astringency of the wood helps keeps in just about in check, but even a sweet-tooth like me finds this just on the wrong side of too sweet and slightly cloying after a while. As is often the case, a little resting time in the glass does wonders to bring everything back into balance. However, despite the high 58.6% ABV I did not personally find that the addition of water provides a benefit – rather it dulled the super pronounced herbal, floral and fruity notes which are the highlights of this interesting defunct Lowlander.
Full tasting note: https://www.thedramble.com/tastings/littlemill-/littlemill-1992-21-year-old-/
Dark herbal tea leaves infusing thyme, orange peels and spearmint seem almost like a refreshing early morning therapeutic brew. Sharp citrus and ripe mangoes provide a fruity and fresh backdrop for the sweeter flavours of spiced (star anise) toffee and candy canes. Under the surface we can find some real malty oats – almost akin to porridge
Take all of our breakfast notes from the nose and dial them up ready for lunchtime. A rich and impressively expansive arrival of fruity flavours which commences fairly saccharine but calms down once the palate has adjusted. Tropical fruits notes from pineapple, mango and coconut combine with some sharper grapefruit and a real grassy green taste – our darker herbal tea has transformed into a sweeter green tea. There’ still some sharp zesty citrus action going on here which provides a nice minerality to the fruit fest.
Medium to long with the tannic nature of 21 years of wood maturation now coming to bear.
- One of the best Littlemills i ever tasted! Coconut, Flowers, grass, everything there! Give it time and air to develop! Its awesome!
