Littlemill 1991 (Eiling Lim)

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: Littlemill

A new Littlemill 1991, bottled by Eiling Lim. The fourth release in her series. Yes, a second Littlemill already, in just four bottlings, but it’s different enough from the previous one.

(47,2%, Eiling Lim 2013, 40 btl.)

Nose: all sorts of lemon really. Lemon juice, lemon candy, lemon balm, lemon yoghurt… Right, grapefruit as well. Some apple peelings and honey. Evolves to lemon marshmallow, nice. Hints of muesli and dried grass on a second level. Some gravel and dust after a while. Mouth: same story, lemon all over. Sharper zesty notes, crystallized lemons, grapefruits. Then some sweeter notes of tangerines and lemon candy too, maybe a few golden raisins. Verbena. The whole spectrum. Finish: medium long, stays on the candied side now, lemons and oranges.

Some whiskies are nice paintings, even though they only use one or two colours. Rich and nicely entertaining in all its variations, and extremely drinkable. Around € 190.

Score: 89/100
