    Tropical fruit basket (papayas and Minute Maid fruit punch) mixed with barley and a bit of jasmin tea. None of the wet cardboard notes found in later Littlemills... just SUPERB.

    Littlemill 1998/2015 (54.2%, The Pearls of Scotland, cask #130, 195 bottles) Colour: gold. Nose: typically tropical, with papayas and mangos everywhere, then pink grapefruits, with a layer of vanilla and acacia honey. That’s all folks, and that’s a lot. Extremely idiosyncratic. With water: it’s the barley that would rather come to the front of the stage, which is normal. This is malt whisky, after all. Also maize bread and popcorn? Mouth (neat): it is fruit syrup! Bananas, mangos, passion fruits, honey, agave syrup… Some kind of multi-vitamin fruit juice, I’m sure this is excellent for our health. With water: perfect, a little grass and green tea, just to put it straighter. Finish: medium, fruitier than fruits. A wee rooty touch in the aftertaste. Comments: so, did anyone finally find out about the way they were doing this at Littlemill? Excellent, perhaps just a notch over-fruity (what? Can that be?) SGP:741 - 89 points.

    Tasted it at the first Whiskybase Gathering in Rotterdam (26 November 2016), during a small Littlemill Masterclass organised there.

    Nose: Earthy and spicy. Some old ripe yellow fruits. Sweet mushroom, notes of tea. No wet cardboard as is often seen with Littlemill

    Taste: quite some hints of farmland and earth. boiled vegatables and yellow fruits.

    Finish: moderately long
