Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Frisch und Kräuterig. Nach längerem verriechen kommen Tropische Früvhte wie Mango zum vorschein. 

Taste

Starker Antritt mit frischen und herben noten. Zartbitter Schokolade und und Espresso bohnen bleiben zurück. 

Finish

Mittellang bis Lang. Ingwer und Basilikum bleiben als letzter Eindruck auf der Zunge zurück. 

Comments

Ein typischer und klassischer Littlemill. Die 44% stehen im gut und er wirkt durchaus reif und hinterlässt einen schönen Eindruck.

Wonderful. Huge fruits: mango and unripe peach, elderberry and  flower honeys

Taste

Sweet, creamy, rich: ripe peach, champagne with strawberry, waxy apples and plum compote, pollens

Finish

Medium long, rich creamy fruits

Comments

My most flowery, fruity whisky ever. Is it truly a whisky? Awesome.

Color

Nose

Very fruity on Elderflower, peach, and mango. Hints of honey, butter and a little olive oil

Taste
Creamy with quite an unusual taste at first but then the fruit bursts through on apple and plums in syrup.
Buttercream with some peach jam with some fizz.
Finish

Almost medium with the cream and fruit loud until the end.

Comments

I like this but you have to work at it, definitely for lovers of sweet whisky.

superbe petit moulin très fruité avec pas mal de notes minérales et une sous-couche végétale (sève, herbe coupée). 44° ? C'est tellement riche et dense en arômes que l'on croirait plutôt un titre alcoolique de 50°! Oufti c'est bon

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Une extrême fraîcheur. De la tige de fleur (vous avez déjà mordillé une tige de pâquerette ?), de la compote de pamplemousse, des fleurs de printemps. De l'essence de parfum de fleur, même, par moments. Un peu de vanille et de la pêche juteuse. Une belle journée printanière, au petit matin. Le nez continue d'embaumer longtemps, même après une longue aération.

Taste

La bouche manque de punch dès le départ. Il faut laisser le temps aux saveurs de se développer. Du pamplemousse blanc, de la vanille, quelques échardes de bois jeune, et une fraîcheur herbacée mélangée à des gouttes de citron. Un peu de raisin blanc bien mûr, aussi.

Finish

Courte. De l'amertume fruitée et des zestes de citron s'installent. Le pamplemousse fait son retour et assèche légèrement le palais.

Comments
  • Comme souvent avec les vieux Littlemill, c'est le nez qui remporte la palme. Je m'y perdrais pendant des heures. La bouche, elle, est très légère et facile d'accès, parfaite en apéro. Il lui manque juste un peu de punch pour s'envoler très haut niveau score.
  • 90/100 (nez 92 et bouche 88).

joli nez avec beaucoup de pêche, dans l'esprit du 12ans OB, des notes pâtissières, quelques fruits exotiques dans le fond, mais très mou en bouche, finale très courte.
