You’d be forgiven for not recognising the name Mannochmore. Its not a distillery you’ll common come across, at least not in its pure form of a single cask release, as much of its whisky has traditionally gone into blended scotch. However, some of their single casks are exceptional. And, happily, this is just such an example. Try this whisky, not only will it allow you to tick Mannochmore off your list, it’ll leave you wanting to try more of their whiskies!
Nose: a wonderful floral nose with both the sweet malt characteristic of the spirit, and the influence of the cask in the form of cinnamon and vanilla notes, coming through.
Palate: sweet malt, cinnamon, vanilla and floral hints, followed by green tea, lemon, lavender and black pepper.
Finish: the cask influence coming through on the finish with notes of oak, vanilla, and black pepper, well balanced against notes of lemon and lavender.
55.3% ABV. 700 mL.
