Littlemill 1992 (Whisky Mercenary)

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Littlemill

Yes, a lot of Littlemill 1988-1992 so far. No, we still don’t have enough. Bring on the newest expression: Littlemill 1992 from The Whisky Mercenary.

 

Littlemill 1992 - The Whisky MercenaryLittlemill 21 yo 1992
(52,9%, The Whisky Mercenary 2014)

Nose: starts maybe a little grassier than other casks. Lots of power. Typical waxy notes / lemon balm, then some tangerine and grapefruit. A sharper rhubarb note. A soft vanilla / frangipane whiff seems to come and go. Mouth: takes no prisoners. Perfect zestiness of grapefruit and lemon, with slightly rounder tangerine. Citrus green tea and grasses. A soft hint of vanilla marshmallow in the back, as well as a creaminess of latte, or coconut. Perfectly focused on its Lowlands strengths. Finish: medium long, zesty, with a spicy warmth.

Another one of these very enjoyable Littlemills. We may be spoiled now but I’m telling you these stocks can’t last forever. Around € 115, available from most Belgian retailers as we speak.

Score: 88/100
