Littlemill 26 yo 1988
(52,7%, Liquid Treasures 2014, bourbon hogshead, 147 btl.)
Nose: this one tends to stay more on the grassy / mineral side. Some chalky notes and oak dust. Dried Mediterranean herbs. Grated coconut, grapefruit and green banana. Hints of paraffin and butter. Not as (tropically) fruity as some others.
Mouth: bags of lemon and grapefruit, as well as some creamy banana. Lots of green tea. Fennel and aniseed. Hints of mint and grasses. Ginger.
Finish: medium long, citrusy with a light bitterness of grapefruit zest.
Littlemills from this era are rarely a deception, but some versions are more tropically fruity than others. This is one of the grassier, more typically Lowlands versions if you like. Around € 160.
