BOW (89)

Nose: quite fresh with a fruity core of green apples, melons and yellow plums. Vanilla custard and marshmallow. Some minty notes and plenty of oak shavings, with floral touches and a whiff of acetone.
Mouth: bright and fruity again. Pears, tinned pineapple and stone fruits with vanillin and hints of candyfloss. A little powder sugar. Then lots of grassy spices (pepper, ginger, clove) and a good dose of plain oak which takes down the overall enjoyment. It seems fairly young, from a very active cask.
Finish: quite long, sour and spicy, with nuts and light tannins.

A rather bright whisky, but while there is definitely a fruity core, it’s the big oaky footprint and grassy / floral note that sets the tune. I recognized it as a Lowlands whisky but I would never have guessed Littlemill. Actually it’s one of the least impressive examples I’ve had from this distillery
