Littlemill 45 year old 250th Anniversary Release, 41.8%

Price: $12,000 Issue: Winter 2022 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Honeysuckle, butterscotch, vanilla, and plenty of rich oak aromas are supported by toffee, soft oak spices, almond paste, and grapefruit peel. On the palate, there is exceptional smoothness and weight, the oak never dominating. It’s sweet, with a syrup-like texture and flavors of lime-forward citrus, orchard fruit, vanilla, toffee, nutmeg, French Chantilly cream, and Werther’s Originals. A mouth-coating finish thick with cream, apple tart, and soft oak. (250 bottles).
