Littlemill Testament is now officially the distillery's oldest release to date, having been distilled on 4th October 1976. This impressive whisky was re-casked in 1996 into American oak hogsheads by master distiller Michael Henry, before he then vatted three of the casks into two first-fill Oloroso sherry hogsheads for four months. He then married all the liquid together for a final two months before it was bottled in 2020 at 42.5% abv.
Just 250 bottles of this limited release have been created, each one presented in a hand-blown glass decanter and a dress stopper made from the distillery's natural sandstone.
The nose has green apples and pears, fresh citrus and ginger, with more vibrant fruits bursting on a sweet and zesty palate. The creamy mouthfeel paves the way for a long finish with gentle spices of cinnamon and nutmeg. Sublime.
