Littlemill Distillery (Closed 1994)
Full flavours but slightly tired. A Lowlander for Christmas? Well, perhaps for Boxing Day.
Aged 21 Years, Sherry finish

Palate: Caramel, rum, crystallised ginger.
Finish: Roasted chestnuts, slightly scorched.
Comment: Full flavours but slightly tired. A Lowlander for Christmas? Well, perhaps for Boxing Day.
Nose: Rounded and toasty warm. Light bran, sweet digestive biscuit, choc ice. With water there's dried grass balanced by soft fleshy fruits.
Palate: Sweet start then crisp nutty varnished oak in the middle, then apricot juice towards the back.
Finish: Slightly bitter. Black butter.
Comment: Eminently drinkable.
