Matured in Bourbon Hogsheads, it was distilled in 1992 and bottled in 2014. Only 558 are available world wide. Other reviews... Nose A little oily to begin with but leave for a few minutes to open up or add a small drop of water at room temperature. As it opens this becomes a classic old style Littlemill with lots of cream and lemony notes with warm buttered brown bread toast, some faint eucalyptus with hot buttered sweetcorn. Palate Much bigger than the nose suggests but very rich and fruity. Some brambles with lychees and hints of fresh basil, some spice coriander and dry vermouth. This dram coats the whole palate with an abundance of flavours. Finish The finish goes on and on delivering more of the nose and palate with the rich oily feel and some waxy fruitiness. Quite remarkable that this is a lowland it's feeling much bigger than that. - Cadenheads.
