Littlemill 29 Year Old (47.3% ABV) has been produced using several refill bourbon casks which were laid down to mature in 1990, which were then finished in first-fill oloroso sherry and Limousin oak casks.

Littlemill 29 Year Old, is the third bottling from the Private Cellar Collection, each of which has been crafted by Master Blender Michael Henry, in Littlemill’s traditional Lowland ‘floral’ style.
This latest release from the distillery which originally dates back to 1772, and fell silent in 1994, comes presented in a Glencairn crystal decanter etched with an illustration of the River Clyde and a silver star signifying the Littlemill distillery’s location.
Commenting on the launch, Michael Henry, said: “The latest expression in the Private Cellar collection helps to tell another piece of the Littlemill story. Littlemill has always represented the traditional Lowland ‘floral’ style, and over the years the distillation and maturation processes evolved to maintain this flavour profile.”
He went onto say: “The first Private Cellar release in 2015 was designed to reflect Littlemill’s original quality and style. The second release in 2017 focussed more on the distillery influence, and by maturing the liquid in refill bourbon casks the distilling process became the main factor in defining the whisky’s character. Littlemill 29 Year Old, our 2019 release, focuses on the influence of wood.”
Limited to 600 bottles, Littlemill 29 Year Old will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP £2,750.00.
