Littlemill Distillery (Closed 1994)
A gentle, appealing drink.
1984, Aged 18 Years
Nose: An attractive, sleek, oaky frame. Sweet wood and fruity soft malt.
Palate: Soft and pretty. A silky feel with some peachy fruit. Soft, round and chewy. The wood's in balance.
Finish: Soft and malty.
Comment: A gentle, appealing drink.
Nose: Very fruity. Pineapple. Luscious. Appetising.
Palate: Syrupy smooth. Cream soda. Coconut.
Finish: Rounded. Sweetish. A splash of orange.
Comment: The rum finish is very sympathetic towards the natural flavours of Littlemill, but the combination never quite delivers what it promises.
