Whisky Reviews for Littlemill 1992 WhB

  1. rottendon scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    An exciting nose that follows a malt that is also interesting in the mouth.
    • Nose
      Fatty and salty at the beginning, exotic fruits, prickly pear, star fruit, and watermelon, like American chewing gum. A little later, distinct barrel notes develop, slightly sour. Warms rounder, still with some interesting and unexpected flavors, eg. B. mixed pickles with Maggi.
    • Taste
      The strength worthy start with excellently integrated alcohol. Honey, some white chocolate with a hint of chili.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish without any surprises, but at the very back there are still a few tannins that prolong the finish a bit.

    I'm a bit divided. The malt is actually not everyday and offers a lot to discover. However, it has a very dominant buttery / estrogenic aroma, which is basically not wrong, but is almost annoying in its expression!
    All in all I like it of course!
    • Nose

      Immediately the smell of shortbread cookies and cream candy comes to my nose. With an extra portion of butter on top. The whole thing is a bit strange. The whole thing becomes shortbread. I've never had this dessert / pastry association so badly in a malt. After the first getting used to it, it becomes really pleasant and tasty. However, almost too much of a good thing.
      I have citrus fruits very late. Mainly lemon, some unripe orange and grapefruit.
      There is no trace of the alcohol.
    • Taste

      Violent start! Here he shows his percentages and he is a bit hot. Otherwise, really great grain notes come to the fore. Just reminds me of Loch Lomond 17 Organic.
      The grain is turned into sugared "Kellogs Smacks"
      The orange becomes more juicy, the citrus notes tend to fade away. An appeal from the tropical fruits comes through.
      Above all is the butter / shortbread aroma.
      I actually like the taste very much, if it weren't for the somewhat marginal alcohol

      The finish is quite long. The oak spreads and the grapefruit comes back. The buttery / creamy is gone, thank God. Otherwise that would be really too much. The mouth burns a little.

  3. Gloin scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    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.
    • Nose
      Rich vanilla, brandy, old wood, anise, pistachio, almonds, latte, lemon after a while, hints of sage, nut liqueur, chamomile
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      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

  4. Bishlouk scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Ha yes, yes! Very much much in many senses (scents, tastes, jumps in all directions); a real kid frolicking in a meadow in the spring. Evolutionary and fun, while remaining typical of the distillery. I really like.
    • Nose
      A powerful nose, very fruity, vanilla, and impregnated with flower essence. Concentrated eau de parfum style. Side fruit, it is a basket of peach, apricot, yellow plum, plantain banana, very juicy. And in syrup. A superb nose, taking, although at the limit of the artificial, so the scents can be "too much".
    • Taste
      Smooth fruit (peach, apricot, ... the same as the nose, what), fruit paste, daisy stalk, and a light citrus fruit. A lot of vanilla, syrup, and flower honey. It's tasty.
    • Finish
      A fine herbaceous dryness sets in. Dry apple smoke rises in the nose. Yellow lemon liquor. It's fresh and tangy, like sparkling.

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A typical Lowlander, but not necessarily a very typical Littlemill. Blind I might have put my bets on Inverleven or a very good Auchentoshan. Actually, the last Auchentoshan from Whiskybroker perhaps seemed more like a Littlemill than this one.
    • Nose
      Fig, hay, oil, straw, raw tuna, vanilla, yellow raisin and caramel. Later very strongly the typical grain cookie that '92 Littlemills tend to have. With water some blood orange and more vanilla.
    • Taste
      Very oily. Fig, apricot, caramel and apple. A few drops of water break the thick oiliness and make room for some beautiful citrus notes.
    • Finish
      Grape, apple and caramel. Also a fresher (more typical Littlemill) kind of fruitiness such as grapefruit. Still that mouth-coating oiliness.
