  2. Helgo scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    My first manochmore. Surprisingly intense fruity with a beautiful sweetness and beautiful ripe pear musts. Spicy oak and medium long powerful finish. Perfectly integrated alcohol. Well-made ex-Bourbon maturation

  6. malthead-sven scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    The light acidity makes it interesting and goes well with the distinct vanilla in the nose. I type Highlands, 46 - 50%, about 15 years
    • Nose
      Blind tasting! Grapes, almonds and honey, vanilla pods, white wine, then nutty, hazelnut and lemongrass
    • Taste
      Fairly heavy and dense, dry and slightly acid, again grapes, with a hint of peach
    • Finish
      quite a long time, there are grapes again, a bit sour and bitter

    Blindverkostung
    • Nose
      fresh, sweet, apples, yellow plums, honey, floral notes and malt.
    • Taste
      strong onset, vanilla, malt, peppery, light fruits, the second sip something nutty and the oak comes through easily. Delicious!!
    • Finish
      long and warm, fruity sweet. Very delicate the oak.

  8. Noface83 scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    Nose: very fresh, light fruits (mirabelles, yellow apples), some alcohol, fresh hay and a delicate honey sweetness, a hint of vanilla and some malt

    Taste: strong and peppery onset, very malty with caramel and vanilla, the fruits are even more exotic and the oak shows up, a sparkling malt sweetness and slightly bitter oak accompany you through the long pleasant finish
    Notes from a blind tasting.
