Littlemill 30 Year Old Tasting Notes

Colour: A light shimmering golden amber.

About this Mythical Beasts release

From 1772, on the banks of the mighty river Clyde, where metals and ore were once mined, Littlemill distillery made Scotland’s first ever licensed whisky, and continued to distil this rich Lowland single malt for over 200 years. 

In 1994, the stills of Littlemill fell silent. No more single malt was ever produced there again. In 2004, the remnants of its once proud buildings were tragically destroyed by a fire. All that remains now of the celebrated Littlemill are a few rare and precious casks. 

Spiritfilled are proud to present Littlemill cask #638 aged for 30 years in a Bourbon barrel. As elusive and precious as the Mythical Beast El Carbunclo, only 190 bottles exist. Each has a cask strength of 49.8%

About El Carbunclo

From deep in the undergrowth of the rolling Scottish Lowlands, a bright gem sparkles like a firefly in the pitch-dark night.

By jet black streams that race and churn into the mighty rivers of the Forth and Clyde, protecting his trove of treasure from those who wish him harm, this elusive, legendary creature lights his way by the ruby red coal glowing in his forehead.

A Mythical Beast of the night, protector of gold, precious metal and gemstones hewn from the Lowland’s mines, El Carbunclo offers enriching, fluid gold and great fortune only to those with the courage to seek him out.
