Andytka3 gave this whisky 82 points

Nose:- Distinctive pleasant floral notes, caramel and cherry brandy. Butter cookies and cereal, biscuity and nutty. Touch of black tea to round it off.

Palate:- Gentle mouthfeel, sweet nature with caramel. Creamy and velvet, cappuccino.

Finish:- A touch of acidic lime peel and citrus, but quick replace with milkiness. Short length.

— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Je suis peut être passé à côté... Mais je ne l'ai pas trouvé très fruité. Pas accroché à celui-ci. Je lui reproche un manque cruel de gourmandise et de profondeur. Un Littlemill un peu austère à mon goût.

Le nez est principalement malté, et aussi fort marqué par des notes de café biscuité. Le fruit confit se place en arrière plan.

La bouche est, elle, plus proche des marqueurs Littlemill que j'apprécie. Du fruit jaune et blanc juteux, de l'abricot sec et sucré, et des notes herbacées de rhubarbe en compote.

La finale, assez courte, est dans la continuité de la bouche, sur la rhubarbe et le fruit blanc.


Bref, je n'accroche pas du tout au nez (alors que généralement c'est surtout les nez herbacés et fruités de Littlemill qui me font vibrer), et la bouche est plus dans les standards de la distillerie sans pour autant que je m'extasie.

Le prix (beaucoup trop élevé) de ce Littlemill à sa sortie m'avait dissuadé de m'en acheter une bouteille; avec du recul je m'en félicite.

Okay, it is a Littlemill whisky so it must be good. The nose is good, lotts of fruit etc. What I really dislike about this bottling series is that they sell the bottles in divided ammounts.This is to much marketing for me, I like my whisky to be exclusive but when you (for example) sell a barrel you don't divide them in to several releases, like ... bottles for this release and ... bottles (from the same barrel) for the Lindores whisky festival bottling. So in this way, the price is way to high for me.
