And Btw, while I'm at it, seriously, why are most whisky blogs and forums (well, the ones I know of) getting SO deadly serious? Mouth: this is much sweeter and fruitier, with a little lemon and a lot of cider apple (or other small green apples). Nose: we’re close to the 1983, only more powerful and hence a tad raw and spirity. With water: a load of very ‘natural’ and pleasantly immature aromas (pleasant because they’re very ‘natural’ and close to the raw materials, grain and yeast).
Poor Littlemill used to be Scotland’s oldest distillery before it’s closure in 1994, as it was founded in 1772. Nose: starts on a rather striking and unexpected smokiness (rather paper and cardboard smoke but then also pinewood) and gets then rather vanilled (straight vanilla pods), with also notes of cornflakes and muesli and then a very obvious grassiness (dried cut lawn grass). Big bitterness after that, very unusual again, on fresh walnuts and apple peel. Finish: long and even bitterer (very grassy), in that sense quite spectacular. Porridge sprinkled with lemon juice, beer and the same kind of smokiness as in the 1983. Well, that’s because you don’t read The Robb Report (NOT The Robber’s Report), and if you don’t read The Robb Report it’s because, just like us, you’re no billionaire, whether in dollars, pounds, yens, euros, yuans, rupees our roubles (but of course we’re all billionaires in peace, love, friendship and understanding).
