Expert Senior Gloin Tasting note

Gloin gave this whisky 89 points
Color
Pale gold
Nose

Satte Vanille, Weinbrand, altes Holz, Anis, Pistazie, Mandeln, Milchkaffee, erst nach einer Weile Zitrone, ein Hauch Salbei, Nusslikör, Kamille

Taste

Sehr weicher cremiger Körper, der im Kontrast zu dem kräftigen Antritt steht, Schärfe auf der Zunge, Vanille, süß und herb zugleich, würzige Eiche, jedoch nicht allzu viel Bitterkeit, eine Spur Schwefel, Karamell, etwas angebrannt. Im zweiten Schluck wird der Antritt milder.

Finish

Nusslikör, umhüllt von Vollmilchschokolade mit Zuckerkruste, dann etwas Eiche mit einer zarten Bitterkeit, die Schokolade wird dunkler, schwarzer Tee, etwas gesüßt, Malz, mittellang

Comments

Der Geruch zeigt wenig von der typischen Frische und Zirtrusfruchtigkeit von Littlemill, es überwiegt die Vanille und Nussigkeit. Das schadet dem Genuss jedoch in keiner Weise.

Auch im Mund und im Abgang zeigen sich wenig dieser Noten, dafür Tee und Eiche und auch wieder Vanille. Das scheint ein aktiveres Fass gewesen zu sein, welches dem Whisky schöne Holznoten verleiht. Diese sind nicht zu herb, als dass sie störend wirken, jedoch stark genug den Brennereicharakter fast zu verdecken. Das bedeutet Punktabzug, auch wenn mir der Whisky sehr gut schmeckt.

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Un nez puissant, très fruité, vanillé, et imprégné d'essence de fleur. Style eau de parfum concentrée. Côté fruit, c'est une corbeille de pêche, abricot, prune jaune, banane plantain, bien juteuse. Et en sirop. Un superbe nez, prenant, bien qu'à la limite de l'artificiel, tellement les senteurs peuvent être "too much".

Taste

Du fruit onctueux (pêche, abricot,... les mêmes qu'au nez, quoi), de la pâte de fruit, de la tige de pâquerette, et un léger acidulé d'agrume. Pas mal de vanille, de sirop, et de miel de fleur. C'est goûtu.

Finish

Une fine sécheresse herbacée s'installe. De la fumée de pomme sèche remonte dans le nez. De la liqueur de citron jaune. C'est frais et acidulé, comme pétillant.

Comments

Ha ben oui hein ! Très too much dans beaucoup de sens (senteurs, goûts, sautillements dans tous les sens); un vrai gamin gambadant dans un pré au printemps. Évolutif et ludique, tout en restant typique de la distillerie. J'aime beaucoup.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Fett und salzig zu Beginn, exotische Früchte kommen auf, Kaktusfeige, Sternfrucht, und Wassermelone, in der Art wie die amerikanischen Kaugummis. Etwas später entwickeln sich deutliche Fassnoten, leicht sauer. Erwärmt runder, immer noch mit einigen interessanten und unerwarteten Aromen, z. B. mixed pickles mit Maggi.

Taste

Der Stärke würdiger Antritt bei hervorragend eingebundenem Alkohol. Honig, etwas weiße Schokolade mit einem Hauch von Chili.

Finish

Mittellanger Abgang ohne Überraschungen, erst ganz hinten kommen doch noch ein paar Tannine, die den Abgang etwas verlängern. 

Comments

Eine spannende Nase der ein auch im Mund interessanter Malt folgt.

Color
Yellow gold
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.

Comments

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.
