thijs100 gave this whisky 89 points
Color
Pale gold
Nose

Citrus fruits and stone fruits. Lemon and grapefruit at first, but then peach, nectarine and cherry. Some melted butter and candle wax. Also wet cardboard, which I find to be typical for Littlemill.

Taste

Really fruity. Passion fruit, pink grapefruit, lemon peel. A slight buttery, vanilla taste as well. Touches of oak and straw, with some bitterness as well.

Finish

Fruity (pears), but some green tea as well. Medium to long.

Comments
Certainly a very good Littlemill. On the fruitier side of the Littlemill-spectrum.

Bishlouk gave this whisky 91 points
Color
Old gold
Nose

Un nez ultra fruité et gourmand. Les fruits exotiques dominent de la tête et des épaules (banane, mangue, ananas), mais du sirop de pêche et d’abricot est aussi bien présent. Un nez rond, sucré, sirupeux, et qui embaume. Mais aussi un peu lourd, à la limite de l’écoeurant.

Taste

Une corbeille de fruits mûrs gorgés de soleil. Mangue, papaye, pêche, ananas, pastèque… Tout y passe, et abondamment sucré. La chaleur de l’alcool (bien maîtrisé) irradie en fin de bouche, en apothéose.

Finish

Moyenne sur la pêche et l’ananas (les autres fruits passent et repassent aussi). Quelques pincées de poivre blanc, et une mini amertume abricotée. L’abricot se décline aussi dans des relents liquoreux.

Comments

Une bombe fruitée. Un excellent Littlemill (je dois bien avouer que peu me déçoivent, Littlemill est ma distillerie préférée, après tout). Celui-ci occupe le haut du panier.

Tasting Notes by WhiskyNotes.be (16 sept-14):

Nose: classic lemon jellybeans, peardrops and meadow flowers up front. Some guava juice and grapefruit. There seem to be a little more green tea and waxy notes in this one. Whiffs of eucalyptus. Very crisp, I like its warmth but I think it’s slightly less complex than some others I’ve had.
Mouth: really really fruity, and one of the most tropical versions I’ve come accross. Guavas, bananas, excellent passion fruits, pineapple sweets, apricots… A creamy, vanilla infused expression. Hints of cake and white chocolate, with some warming oak towards the finish.
Finish: long, fruity, with hints of green tea.
Comments: this Littlemill 1990 draws the card of tropical fruits and warm vanilla, whereas some other vintages can be more about zesty fruits and minerals. Of course I’m a fan of this profile, but even then I think it’s one of the best examples.
Score: 92/100.
