Specialist online whisky shop, TheWhiskyBarrel.com, today releases a new addition to the outlet’s range of exclusive bottlings.
Distilled at the lost Littlemill Distillery in the Scottish Lowlands in November 1988, we selected a 26 year old expression matured in a refill sherry hogshead cask and bottled in March 2015 by Hunter Laing & Co. of Glasgow under the company’s Old & Rare Platinum Selection label.
Littlemill Distillery was located in Bowling, West Dunbartonshire, Scotland. Established in 1772, it was one of the oldest working distilleries in Scotland, indeed one of the oldest in the world, when it closed in 1994 and was subsequently demolished in 2004.
Today, well-aged Littlemill Scotch whisky stocks are gaining a prized reputation and, of course, are becoming increasingly rare. Fittingly, just 150 bottles of this delicious golden nectar are available exclusively to customers of TheWhiskyBarrel.com. Shipping to customers worldwide including; the United States, Canada and Japan.

Official Tasting Notes
Nose: A light gold whisky with a nose of vanilla custard powder giving way to apples, pears and slightly leafy notes of butterscotch coming through late.
Taste: On the palate it has a creamy mouthfeel with butter shortbread at the start, followed by apple skins and a cinnamon note.
Finish: The finish is long, dry and slightly fruity, with a hint of oak.
