Whisky Whispers

Littlemill actual bottle

Littlemill Private Cellar Edition

A limited release of 1500 bottles from a lost Lowland distillery which was possible the oldest distillery in Scotland. Needless to say we’re delighted to be part of The Whisky Wire #Littlemill flash blog and this is our review of the Littlemill Private Cask Edition.

Glass of Littlemil

Colour – a dark golden, butterscotch hue.

Nose – Pronounced sherry, sweet like molasses, a hint of spice, malty, cereal notes and an almost floral aroma.

Palate – Rich, sherry and malt combined with oak, vanilla coming through too. Sweetness balanced with dry tannins and nutty oak.

Finish – The sherry lingers with spice and vanilla, warming nicely from a higher alcohol content, lovely.



Littlemill was founded in 1772 at Bowling, West Dumbartonshire. The distillery has been silent since 1994 and was then sadly completely destroyed by fire in 2004.

Loch Lomond Group’s Littlemill Private Cask Edition has been selected from spirit distilled in 1989 & 1990 matured in bourbon casks, finished in Oloroso Sherry casks and bottled at 50.4% abv in 2015.
