The smell shows little of the typical freshness and crunchy fruitiness of Littlemill, it outweighs the vanilla and Nussigkeit. But that does not harm the enjoyment in any way. Also in the mouth and the finish are little of these notes, for tea and oak and again vanilla. This seems to have been a more active cask, which gives the whisky nice wood notes. These are not too harsh to be offensive, but strong enough to almost mask the distilling character. That means point deduction, even if I like the whisky very well.
Rich vanilla, brandy, old wood, anise, pistachio, almonds, latte, lemon after a while, hints of sage, nut liqueur, chamomile
Very soft creamy body, in contrast to the strong onset, sharpness on the tongue, vanilla, sweet and dry at the same time, spicy oak, but not too much bitterness, a trace of sulfur, caramel, a little burned. In the second sip, the start is milder.
Nut liqueur, covered in milk chocolate with sugar crust, then some oak with a delicate bitterness, the chocolate is darker, black tea, a little sweetened, malt, medium long
