Littlemill 40 Year Old Celestial Edition Description
This Lowland single malt from the now lost Littlemill distillery was distilled on 11th October 1977 and matured for four decades in American oak and first-fill bourbon barrels before a three month finishing period in Oloroso sherry casks.
The oldest release from the distillery to date, the Celestial Edition is presented in a hand blown Glencairn Crystal decanter, complete with solid brass stopper. Each decanter is individually numbered and displayed in a stunning presentation case, decorated with the star chart from the night of the liquid's distillation. Limited to just 250 bottles worldwide.
Nose: honeysuckle, elderflower, honey and oak with a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Palate: green apples, pineapple, grapefruit and lime, before dried fruits emerge with vanilla toffee.
Finish: long with layers of fruit and spice.
