Littlemill Distillery (Closed 1994)
One for a long summers night, possibly with a light cigar.

97.11 – 18 Years Old
Nose: Fresh juicy oranges with a light lemon note too. Like opening a box of recently picked strawberries. Underneath there's pencil shavings and wet newspaper.
Palate: A little like the final layer of trifle,mixed fruit in jelly. Big waves of juicy fruit.\rSome spice gives it a bit of a kick.
Finish: Sweet and very engaging.
Comment: One for a long summers night, possibly with a light cigar.
Nose: Light and aromatic:raffia, marshmallow and a touch of strawberry. Light citrus (orange) and honey,but there's huge oak influence here:sawmills and sweet sap.
Palate: Completely different to the nose: it's juicy,syrupy and ripe with tinned fruit salad (grapes,pears and apricots) and baked apple before a spicy heat comes through.
Finish: Long and sweet.
Comment: Lovely balance. A slow sipper.
