Distilled in October 1977, Littlemill 40 Year Old Celestial Edition is a 40 year aged Lowland single malt that packs a real punch! Aged in American oak and bourbon barrels before being finished in Oloroso sherry casks, this dram is presented in a hand-blown Glencairn Crystal decanter adding to its luxury feel. It also comes in an impressive presentation box that has an image of a star chart on the case from the night that it was distilled on 11th October 1977, hence its name. Just 250 bottles of this beautiful dram were released. On the nose, you’ll find notes of honeysuckle, elderflower, honey and oak and a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg, so a fairly floral opening. Then palate is quite fruity, with notes of limes, grapefruit, green apple, pineapple leading onto dried fruit, toffee and vanilla. A long finish with layers of spiced fruit give it the perfect end. An absolutely sublime dram.
