    Great whisky! Good example of how sherried maturation should be made

    I visited all distilleries in Scotland (most of them several times over the last 20 years) but the one I have searched for the longest time was Mannochmore (this was before the Internet and navigation systems were available).  More than three times I drove the road where it supposed to be and than I stopped frustrated at Glenlossie distillery to ask for direction.  The guy laughed loudely and pointed to a building two blocks behind Glenlossie on the same property.  "There is Mannochmore."  At this time it was not producing as the whisky boom had not started yet.  All doors were locked, the stills unpolished and the windows not cleaned for years.

    Mannochmore is infamous for its heavily critised "Loch Dhu" experiment and still today there are not many really good releases available.  It was (and probably will ever be) a workhorse for Diageos blends.  This dram certainly is one of the better Mannochmore, but still not really convincing.  After some nice sherry aromas in the nose there is a rather hot arrival in the mouth followed by some quiet wooden/bitter notes that I did not expect in a 18 year old.  The finish is not very long and again slightly drying out.  Water improves it somewhat but the bitter notes increase almost the same way as the pleasant ones do. 

    Come on, Diageo, you can do better than that....

  8. larswehmeier scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Strong sherry-toned nose. Spicy and powerful with malt and wood aromas, but also sweetly sweet with lots of nougat. Only then the raisins and dried fruits. Finally some vanilla and caramel.
    • Taste
      Strong start. Creamy consistency. Pepper-spicy with a lot of oak. Some ginger. Dark bittersweet chocolate. A few figs.
    • Finish
      Quick dry. But also warming and spicy for a long time.
