    Fruit Pie

     

    Douglas Laing launched
    a series called Old Particular at the end of 2013. But now there is also a
    range of Extra Old Particular – XOP for short – in which exceptional single
    casks are bottled like a 30 Year Old Caol Ila, a 26 Year Old Macallan and so
    forth. They recently announced a 30 Year Old Auchentoshan, so I have started saving
    up. But in the meantime, let us give this 26 Year Old 1988 Littlemill a go.

     

    The nose is pretty
    alcoholic, but once you get past that, you will get nice touches of almonds,
    dried grasses, citrus peels and whipped cream. Lemon tart? After a few moments
    quite a bit of fruit that you would typically find on a fruit pie emerge: pineapple,
    peach, oranges and a single slice of kiwi. Lovely.

     

    It is oily, but
    surprisingly soft. Again fruit, with citrus in the lead. Just a tad sour, but
    in a good way. Less tropical than expected, though.

     

    The finish is medium
    long in which the spices (ginger mostly) and the agrums return.

     

    Lovely Littlemill,
    although I find the price tag of 300 EUR quite steep.

    Almonds, sugar pastry and marzipan
    acid fruits and dust
    Hot, long and a residue of coffee beans
