Nose

La douceur est ce qui frappe en premier. Pas de grosses senteurs qui claquent, tout dans la délicatesse. Des fruits jaunes et blancs juteux, quelques exotiques aussi, des fleurs d'arbre, et un léger boisé noble.

Taste

 La délicatesse continue... Du bois poussiéreux, de la pomme granny acidulée, une légère amertume fruitée. L'acidulé occupe le devant de la scène.

Finish

Moyenne. La poussière de bois perdure. L'acidulé s'éteint, faisant place à un joli fruité / floral délicat et subtil.

Comments

On est fort loin de l'hyper fruité des Littlemill 1984 ou de l'herbacé des Littlemil du début des années 90. Cet acidulé en bouche me déconcerte, ce n'est pas à quoi je m'attends quand je déguste un Littlemill. Ce 40 ans est cependant un très bon dram, fin et subtil, fort agréable; mais je ne "sens" pas ses 40 ans et je ne trouve pas que ses 600€ prix de vente de sortie en Allemagne soient justifiés.

Es kommt sofort die Liitlemill typische Fruchtnote, tropische Früchte, reif und süß. Mango, Pfirsich und bisschen Apfel. Frisch gebackene Brioche mit Zitronenabrieb.

Taste

Was die Nase schon erschnuppert hat, setzt sich wunderbar im Mund fort. Es kommen die Eichennoten vom Fass dazu, eine leichte Bitterkeit, aber angenehm.

Finish

Der Abgang ist lang und mundfüllend, es kommen die feinen Vanillearomen vom Borbonfass dazu.

Comments

Ein wunderbarer Littlemill. Klassisch!
