LITTLEMILL 1988 - ARCHIVES BATCH 3

This is the 2nd Littlemill bottled by the Whiskybase-guys in their 'Archives'-series...
The first one was bottled as a part of their inaugural release in 2011 at 22yo and 48,3%

The 2nd one, as I'm about to review below is just slightly older and stronger...

Let's try it:

Littlemill 1988 23yo 07.11.1988/xx.05.2012 ex-sherry cask#08/1077 49,3%, Archives

Full gold in colour

Nose:
Marzipan, sherry, orangy notes, hints of struck match. Some unidentifiable exotic fruit and noddle herbal spices. A very special style nose indeed.

Taste:
Wow, Mouth filling, yet gentle, sherry and dark fruits with that exotic herbal element lurking right there both mid-palate and in the aftertaste. I'm also thinking wet tobacco leaves and wet earthen floors?

I've never been much of a Littlemill man myself, but this one is really good!

89/100!
