Nose

Die Nase ist sehr frisch und erinnert mich direkt an gelbes Obst, Aprikosen, Mango, auch Bananen. Neben dem frisch riechenden Obst habe ich aber auch Getreide, so wie Quaker Haferflocken. Ich habe in der Nase nicht den typischen schweren , süssen Sherrykick, sondern eher die frischere Variante. Trotzdem rieche ich auch den Alkohol der ein bisschen piekst - aber was will man machen, Fassstärke halt.

Taste

Ui ui ui... Hier tun sich definitiv neue Momente auf. Sehr malzig am Rachen, kräftiger Antritt, würzig, Sherry ist da, ein kleines bisschen Karamel,Cornflakes, bzw. die zuvor erwähnten Flocken, aber auch so etwas wie... ...Gummi? Ja irgendwie habe ich bei Littlemill manchmal so ne störende Gumminote. Es scheint genau dieser Gummi zu sein, den man bei Littlemill entweder liebt -oder eben nicht? Der Antritt und dieses malzige gefallen mir - der Fahrradschlauch ist gewöhnungsbedürftig.

Finish

Das Finish ist lang, der Malt schiebt lange nach und die oben erwähnte störende Note verschwindet auch recht schnell. Ich habe den Malt jetzt runtergeschluckt und das was bleibt, gefällt. Sherry hängt im Rachen, und der Aftertaste erinnert mich an Aprikosen-Getreidejoghurt.

Comments

Ja was soll ich sagen. Schlecht kann ich diesen Littlemill nicht finden, nur habe ich für deutlich weniger Geld auch schon Whiskys getrunken, die mir besser geschmeckt haben. Womöglich hätte ich ihm blind noch 2-3 Punkte weniger gegeben - ich weiss nicht? Littlemill ist halt so ne Sache - speziell, eigenartig, individuell, aber halt auch Geschmackssache. Ich finde ihn insgesamt schon ganz gut, wird aber seinem hohen Preis für meinen Geschmack nicht gerecht. Littlemill Fans machen hier vermutlich nichts falsch.

Nose: Orange (juice), some spices, a bit sour. Lightly earthy and flowery.

Gest fuller, warmer and more floral. Sweet. The spices get softer/mellow.
Furniture pollish.

Taste: Sweet and peppery, but both light and very pleasant. Oragnes, Its a sweet and full bodied taste, but stil very light.

Finish: Nice and spices. First sweet, but it gets more bitter from the oak. Some mocca and milk chocolate.

Nose

UN whisky à double face, qui tantôt m'emporte, tantôt me répugne. Allez, je commence par la face la plus sombre. Quelque chose de puissant et d’écœurant  constitué d'un mélange de tabac frais et de peinture acrylique. Il y a une sorte de bois humide en putréfaction par derrière. Il me rappelle le Dalmore Asta Morris (https://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/42252/dalmore-single-cask), c'est dire comme c'est plaisant... Et voici la face la plus souriante: de juteuses notes de fruits frais dans le nez volatil, de suaves volutes lourdes et parfumées de bois précieux. Le hic, c'est qu'il faut se farcir l'un pour avoir l'autre. Littlemill m'a toujours paru un whisky étrange.

Taste

Attaque portée par le bois du fût de sherry et de fortes notes herbacées, puis des fruits acidulés, et une amertume boisée.

Finish

Superbe fade out acidulé sur une trame suave et parfumée. On passe par les fleurs roses et la fraise tagada, puis on termine sur un arôme grandissant et persistant de mousse ou d'écorce humide...  ou de moisi, selon qu'on veut voir ça du bon ou du mauvais côté...

Comments

Jekyll et Hyde. Un whisky schizophrène qui prend la tête en en ne donnant le meilleur qu'à travers le pire... Difficile à noter. Je passe de 76 à 92 en un coup de langue... Alors, je coupe en deux: 84.
