A pale gold coloured whiskey with a sweet, full bodied nose. Vanilla, leafy and floral with butter shortbread, apple skins and pear notes coming through at the end. Creamy sweet initially on the palate with a slight peppery note, then the fruity character appears with more green apple skins and some pineapple giving way to a long, dry, spicy finish with oak and nutmeg coming through late.
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.
