With so many different bottles of Littlemill still available, one has to wonder how it is possible that such a small distillery could leave a stock large enough to keep selling casks for decades. Or maybe Diageo is just cheating us out of our money with their special releases.

Nose: light, fruity and a bit oily: notes of lemon cream, marzipan, a tad of vanilla, a layer of fruit: rhubarb, gooseberries and tangerines, finishing with a whiff of stone dust.

Mouth: light and waxy body with just one note on the palate: pink grapefruit (amazing): bitter, hot and burning.

Finish: long and drying, with notes bitter oranges and oak

The verdict: Didn't know what to expect, within the whisky community no consensus can be found on Littlemill. Some loath it as cod oil, others would sell their own children for a bottle. With a nose similar to Rosebank and a palate bearing resemblance to Lochside, this is a most amazing dram. I was simply blown away by the powerful taste that came after the light nose. Great stuff!!
