    Typical for Mannochmore with many herbs. Certainly not for everyone. I think he's really good.
    • Nose
      Citrus notes, herbs, floral, vanilla, dry wood, cigar box, ginger, lavender, flower shop
    • Taste
      Strong onset, herbs, citrus, oak spice, lots of heat
    • Finish
      Much heat remains, again very spicy, kräutrig, something bitter

    I ask Jasmine to recommend a starter. She remembers i’m a sucker for Mannochmore whilst finding one with her name on it. Smart!

    N: Resinous vanilla which is to be expected from a young 1st fill bourbon cask. Water and time reveals a light bodied hessian/dunnage sweet grassy malt.
    T: Surprisingly pleasing mouthfeel. Some underlying heat - think mild Extra Strong mints. Adding water aggravates it, becoming rather brash & brittle.
    F: Creamy woody vanilla.
    C: SMWS Mannochmore's have consistently been rather decent but I find this one a bit too immature and generic.Scores a C-

    Notes der SMWS: www.smws.com/jasmine-candles-and-moscow-mules

    The nose, initially fresh and delicate suggesting lemon, honey and melon, soon opened up its fragrance of camomile lawns, hand cream and jasmine-scented candles; with time dusty tobacco notes appeared. The palate was an intriguing mix of sweetness, spicy heat and citric astringency – we got lemon bonbons, cinnamon rolls and hot-cross buns – and a fizzy lime and ginger combination reminiscent of Moscow Mules. Not much change on the reduced nose – some fresh-sawn wood and Chinese sweet and sour. The palate, however, became sweeter and more easy-drinking, with lemon puffs and the stimulating, uplifting effect of lemon and ginger tea.
