- Typical for Mannochmore with many herbs. Certainly not for everyone. I think he's really good.
Citrus notes, herbs, floral, vanilla, dry wood, cigar box, ginger, lavender, flower shop
Strong onset, herbs, citrus, oak spice, lots of heat
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-

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.
