Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Turkish delight. In a small wooden box, as favoured by posh shops.
Palate: Scenty, oily. Marshmallows. Rosewater.
Finish: Toasted coconut. Dusty icing sugar.
Comment: I have always rated Littlemill more highly than most tasters do, but stocks are getting past their best.
7.8
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Malty, leathery (the smell of a new wallet), soft fruit, and with water, increasing wood. A love or hate aroma.
Palate: Juicy, almost Irish in style: peaches, orange juice, crisp oak and malt. Still leathery.
Finish: Cigar and sweet fruits.
Comment: Pretty woody but has a certain rough-hewn charm.
