- Littlemill 20 Year Old Platinum Selection
Douglas Laing Old & Rare Platinum Selection.
Single cask refill hogshead twenty year old Littlemill distilled November 1991 and bottled January 2012.
214 numbered bottles.
Opens clean and fresh on the nose, carrying a fruity and creamy vanilla character plus an attractive barley sugar style. The palate remains creamy – now with a macerated fruit quality and runs to sweet spices - particularly ginger. The finish is medium long, still spicy, running drier to a soft cedar wood style.
Littlemill Single Malt Whiskey
Littlemill Distillery was established in 1772 to the west of Bowling by the north shore of the River Clyde and on the main road into Glasgow. Subsequent modifications during the 1930s resulted in a number of novel features including double ventilation towers which sat over a single drying kiln and pot stills with rectifiers rather than the traditional swan necks. The combination of pot and column stills in Littlemill Distillery was designed to produce malt whiskey which was expected to mature quickly. When production ceased in 1992 Littlemill Distillery was the oldest working malt whiskey distillery in Scotland. Closed in 194 and demolished in 2006 and now Littlemill is a lost Scottish distillery although the shell of the manager's house remains.
