Littlemill 29 Years Old 1990 - 2019 Private Cellar Release
For this 2019 Littlemill Private Cellar release, master blender, Michael Henry selected 7 casks to create a spirit that not only reflects the distillery style but also the regional character of honeyed sweet notes with floral character - a true 'Lowland Lady'.
All originally matured in refill bourbon casks selected across 3 distillation dates in 1990 and filled at 68.7 or 68.8%, allowing them to retain the Littlemill distillery character throughout the maturation.
From 1950's onwards Littlemill distillery traditionally used a combination of sherry casks and American oak (bourbon) hogsheads. They recreated this maturation style by further maturing the whisky in 1st fill oloroso sherry and then in French Limousin oak casks.
This limited edition decanter, made by Glencairn, is one of only 600 released. Each one is individually numbered housed in a beautiful wooden box along with a 5cl miniature, note book and a piece of the original Litlemill cask.
