Nose
Nez de sherry très bien intégré.
En vrac : du cuir, du chocolat noir, de la mûre, de la cerise, de la myrtille, du raisin, des noisettes, de la cannelle.
Un peu de rancio. De kirsch.
Une très légère touche de terre.
C'est très sympa.
Taste
On reste dans cette même lignée sherry avec plus d’astringence.
Plus de caffé, du chocolat très noir et poudre de cacao. 
Un rancio bien plus prononcé qu'au nez. Du Marc.
Le terreux et le cuir sont plus prononcés eux aussi.
Une pointe de caramel et toujours des noisettes et de la cannelle.
Finish
La finale est longue sur le cuir, les fruits et la cannelle. Le chocolat en poudre reste.
Comments

Très bon. Le seul reproche est sur l'astringence en bouche. Elle se réduit heureusement au cours de la dégustation.

Nose

Nuts and chocolate. Smooth nose, but not thin at all. Hazel and walnut. Cacao and coffee beans. Oranges and some lime. A whiff of cardboard.   

Taste

Again room at first for the dry walnut and cacao. Not to bitter and balanced by the oranges, peach  and mandarin. Some newspapers. Leather and cinnamon biscuits.

Finish

Spicy oak and herbal tea with cookies. Long, warm and just mouth coating.  

Comments

These days (late 2014) the Littlemills are almost always released on bourbon casks. This sherry finish works well for me

Nose

Raisin, cooky, porridge, orange, dark chocolate, mocha, hazelnut, porridge and peach. Give it a while and the typical Littlemill grapefruit note finds its way through the darker notes, and ever more prominently so with every additional minute. A few drops of water really put the grapefruit and peach above the sherry notes, but also bring out some sawn wood.

Taste

Chocolate cooky, orange, raisin, date, grain, hazelnut paste, grenadine syrup and toffee. Also here, water and patience lead to a clear grapefruit note as well.

Finish

Orange, cooky, raisin, dark chocolate, dark cherry, grapefruit, hazelnut paste and eventually roasted chestnut. Depending on how long it has been in the glass and whether you added water, the sherry or the fresher fruity notes win.

Comments

90/91. The sherry influence very nicely complements the Littlemill distillery character without overpowering it: It's still a very recognisable Littlemill.
