Littlemill 40 Year Old
70cl / 46.8%
- Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
An exquisitely-packaged edition of Littlemill – the oldest, in fact, ever released from this lost distillery. This 40-year-old Celestial Edition has been bottled in celebration of the distillery owner Duncan Thomas, whose life's work was the creation of Littlemill's subtly floral, vanilla-led whisky.
The elegant presentation box that houses the hand-faceted Glencairn crystal decanter, alongside a miniature of the whisky and a commemorative booklet, depicts the configuration of the stars on the evening that the whisky was distilled.

Tasting notes from the producer
Nose: Floral bursts of honey and elderflower, early summer hedgerow, with delicate honey sweetness and elegant oak spice of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Taste: Opens with mouth-watering fruits, crisp green apple and fresh pineapple with grapefruit and lime citrus then richer dried fruits of sultana and raisins before vanilla toffee gives sweetness to the mid-palate.
Finish: Long with layers of fruit and spice. Green fruits continue into the finish with gooseberry and kiwi before waves of warming cinnamon and clove spice.
