Littlemill (Closed 1994) Distillery, Bowling, Dumbarton, Dunbartonshire, Lowland, Scotland
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Light, lemony.
Palate: Creamy. Condensed milk. Becoming flowery and drying.
Finish: Surprisingly hot.
Comment: Littlemill has never been a favourite with critics - or blenders - but I have always thought it a good example of a Lowland malt.
7.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Sweet and slightly confected, but has depth. Orange squash/opal fruit and almond. In time a note like lead pipe. A bit immature?
Palate: Light and very sweet to start, then a promising creamy maltiness, but a certain hardness remains.
Finish: Fast.
Comment: Seems sweet, but just isn't quite balanced, as if the cask has yet to interact fully with the spirit.
