1990 Littlemill K&L Exclusive 21 Year Old Faultline Spirits Single Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 750ml

SKU #1079278

When it was dismantled in 1996, Littlemill was not only one of the oldest working distilleries, but also one of the rarest. It's rarely mentioned these days. Straddling the line between Lowland and Highland, just north of Glasgow, it is traditionally classified as a Lowland whisky becauses it was historically triple distilled. But geographically, it's more closely linked to the Highlands, and in the 1930s, the distillery switched to double distillation. Finding great Littlemill is EXTREMELY difficult. So we were very lucky to find this exceptional cask of ultra-rare Littlemill and even luckier to get it for a reasonable price. From a secret special source, this warehouse contained several off limits ultra rare casks. Somehow we weaseled this one cask out for the inaugural release of our own independent label dubbed Faultline Spirits. Faultline draws a line in the sand. It connects our three stores and expresses the monumental nature of what we plan to do. Only the finest, rarest products will be bottled under the Faultline name; this Littlemill exemplifies our goal perfectly. This bourbon cask was perfectly aged in a cool ocean climate and shows a great deal of depth. Nose: Strong caramel, green apple peel, rich grain and citrus blossom. Palate: Tootsie Roll, pineapple, more citrus and bit of white pepper. Complex, vibrant, truly special. (David Girard, K&L Spirits Buyer)

It seems I am developing a fetish for scotch from closed distilleries! Normally, you can't get Lowland scotch outside of Scotland, but we have a choice couple here at K&L. The Littlemill 21 year old shows tropical fruits- pineapple, lychee and mango, lovely vanilla and soft spice. I love, love, love Lowland scotch! (Looking for a Christmas gift for me? TADA! *wink wink*)

OH god yes!! This is AMAZING! It tastes like a spicy roll in the hay, filled with barney characteristics, sunshine, and has fantastic acid with a gorgeously long finish.
