Not a lot Littlemill bottles out there I am afraid, and every single one is something to cherish. The last one I had was another IB (Kintra) which was nice. This was was getting raving report from fellow bloggers, and seemed something worth a try. Luckily I was given a sample by my good whisk friend Billy (thank you!), while visiting London about 2 months ago.
Nose: Rich and sweet,With chocolate ,
Raisins , wood spices, rum soaked dried fruit , some wood resin, complemented by fruit cake and spicy wood and a touch of vanilla custard.
Palate: Ginger candy, chocolate. Some kirsch , bits of exotic fruit , malty sweet with polished wood. Solid stuff !
Finish: Long drying with chocolate and semi sweet Cherries with a hint of wood.
All in all an excellent bottling by SMOS, bringing back good memories of a distillery which is no longer in existence. Well done. A solid buy. highly recommended.
many thanks to Billy Abbot for this sample
