Loch Lomond and crystal glassware manufacturer Glencairn have collaborated to release a 29-year-old single malt Scotch whisky from the long-deceased Littlemill distillery.
Littlemill 29-Year-Old was matured in seven refill Bourbon casks, then finished in first-fill Oloroso sherry and Limousin oak casks before being bottled at 47.3% alcohol by volume [94.6 proof] and is said to contain notes of caramel, floral and spice.
Littlemill 29 Year Old is the third release in the Loch Lomond Group’s Private Cellar Collection and each Glencairn decanter features the River Clyde and a silver star to highlight Littlemill distillery’s former location. The decanter also includes a 50ml miniature bottle of Littlemill 29YO for tasting purposes, a piece of the original Littlemill cask and a booklet detailing the history of the distillery and tasting notes.
The Littlemill distillery closed in 1994 and the distillery itself was destroyed by a fire in 2004.
Only 600 bottles of Littlemill 29-Year-Old are being made available worldwide for the paltry sum of $3,425 per bottle.
