Littlemill 23 Year Old by WhiskyBroker (53.8%, 228 bottles)
Nose: Very grassy, hey and straws, Vanilla and honey, some wet clothes and a bit of pungent, whiffs of nails polish and color thinner and overall a lots of greenery.
Palate: Sweet, a bit pungent and oily, greenery, nail polish, minerals and limestone, heather honey.
Finish: Short-medium, finish honey, minerals and gentle oak.
Thoughts: A real good lowlander and a very interesting Littlemill with greenery from one side but with minerals and pungent from the other side. For 80 quid it was a was a no-brainer.
