The Littlemill shimmers amber in the glass, long, oily "legs" stick to the glass wall of my Premium Snifter. Creamy roasted aromas rise, hazelnuts and raisins emerge. Gradually, subtly sour fruit notes, mirabelle plums and a hint of exotic fruits follow. Sweet and fruity are followed by pineapple, mango, green apple and redcurrant, tangerines and a hint of apricot mingle with milk chocolate and minimal toffee. The nose is extremely sweet and fruity at the moment, cherries and blackberries come into their own, while fruit infused with rum slowly stimulates the salivation. After a few minutes, I imagine myself perceiving yellow fermented fruit. Do I smell a pinch of cinnamon?
Shallow and relatively mild, the first sip flows through the mouth, suddenly there is a crackling sharpness on the tongue, spicy wood elements stick to the edges of the tongue while warmth engulfs the palate. Abrasion of orange peel and grapefruit exude their discreet bitter and bitter aroma, again tickling subtle sharpness on the tip of the tongue, tart and spicy wood tones run through the throat. Minimal hints of a dark spicy note, walnuts sticking slightly rancid on the palate, as well as a hint of wet foliage and hard dark chocolate or block chocolate. Lightly burnt sugar and a hint of citrus fruits make a strange combination, with dark walnuts, the taste goes into the aftertaste.
Dark walnuts stick with spicy wood tones on the palate, dried berries and grapes come up. Toasted cereals and a touch of cold espresso are shown, yellow berries and fruits are slightly malty, a chunk of caramel floats in the stimulated saliva under the tongue. With tart wood tones and a dry walnut aroma, the Littlemill sounds slow and leaves a creamy and slightly greasy mouthfeel.
