This is the first OB 21 year release from Littlemill that’s bottled at 46% ABV.
Nose: Yeast rolls, playdough, new oak, bold pepper, star anise, and white chocolate.
Palate: Sour and super funky up front before a wave of mango and peach drizzled in white vinegar wash over the palate. Slightly salty and floral after a minute.
Finish: Stonefruits linger with a perfect level of oak alongside heather and cardamom.
Rating: 90/100 – I’ve only had a couple other Littlemills which I have not liked, so this one was a big surprise for me.
Value for the money: Looks like these are going for €300+ at auction lately, and that’s pushing it a bit for me. If it were available in stores, I’d pay up to $200-$225 for a bottle.
