Sweet versus Dry

 

I have tried a couple of club bottlings from the Belgian ‘Tongerse Whiskyvrienden’, like their Caol Ila 1990, Kilchoman 2009, Laphroaig 1997 and more recently Highland Park 1994. They were gems, all of them. So the expectations for this Littlemill 1990 are pretty high.

 

Sturdy nose on banana peel, lime and mango. Loads of oak as well. Think freshly sawn planks. Quite a bit of hay too. Something menthol, maybe? Yet this nose is nicely outspoken and balanced. The sweet versus the dry, let us say. Adding water pushes the fruit away and leaves only caramel.

 

On the palate, the wood gladly moves over for the fruit. Think mostly grapefruit, but also mango and pineapple. Touch alcoholic though. Maybe it needs some water. Then it turns a bit dry with a salty edge. Surprising and very nice!

 

The finish is long and zesty with a bit of mint at the death.

 

Need I say it again? Littlemill 1990 is top class.

Old gold
Nose

Ultra herbacé, d’une extrême fraîcheur. Plein d’herbe coupée avec de la rosée du matin dessus. Derrière cette herbe, une corbeille de fruits frais (banane, ananas, pèche, abricot, pamplemousse). Miameuh ! Après aération, l’herbacé se calme partiellement et laisse les fruits s’exprimer pleinement. De la tige de pâquerette se révèle.

Taste

L’herbacé dominant du nez cède la place aux fruits en pagaille (toujours une pleine corbeille d’ananas, abricots, agrumes fraîchement coupés en quartiers juteux). Des épices poivrées apparaissent.

Finish

Longue. Légère sécheresse de pelure d’abricot. Une pointe mentholée au fond de la bouche. De l’abricot sec s’installe tranquillement, et de la vanille salée picote au palais. Une chaleur irradie en bouche pendant de longues minutes.

Comments

Waouw ! Ça c’est du Littlemill qui dépote ! Très complexe et évolutif. Les marqueurs Littlemill sont très présents. L’alcool est parfaitement intégré. Une gourmandise fraîche et fruitée, j’en redemande !
