Whisky Reviews for Mannochmore 1990 MMcK

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.67 points

  1. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    A great 28 year old malt from the Bourbon Barrel. Enormously fruity on the nose, pear and grape, of course, also some strawberry and mango; becomes fruity the longer in the glass. In the mouth, the full oiliness with the most pleasant herbal and oak flavor. The finish is also surprisingly long. But hey, 28 years old, Mannochmore - that really gives the full elegant Speysider fruitiness.

      Ripe pear, honeydew melon. Very pleasantly fine oak flavor. A few strawberries mixed with white grapes. Oily full aroma without any unpleasant grassiness. A little mango, fine freshness.

      Mango and pear storms forward with great intensity, supported by fine oak flavor and some marjoram. Very full-oily mouthfeel, the strawberry grape comes back, oily-crisp. A little forest honey. Fine seasoning. Great fruit, great aromas between pear, honey and exotic.

      The 45% look little, but are strong. You notice that, because the honey-pear-mango essence with the most pleasant oak notes remains a little more than medium-long.

    I was on the fence initially, but this is one of these dark horses that starts off real inconspicuous only to get better and better every 5 minutes, and at the end you're won over completely.
    • Nose

      Interestingly mineralic and ashy initially, with quite some limestone and charcoal. At first I found the fruitiness pretty reserved, at least in comparison with the Glen Grant, Tomatin and Macallan (all ex-BC) that I'm comparing this against. But yeah, okay: after a while in the glass, nice notes of lime, guava, melon and and kiwi emerge. Initially I also noticed a "dried-out" (hay-like) wood influence that I didn't find perfectly integrated. However, after upwards of 45 minutes, you can scratch that last point, and it becomes more and more creamy, and basically a pure delight. It just needs sone time to come into its own, then it becomes stellar. So be patient with this one.

      Very fruity and oily, and the age shows appropriately. Still with this dry, mineralic side that was apparent upon first nosing as well. The body could be a bit bigger, I'd say, but that's no real complaint. Awesome waxes and fruits when it goes down. At times, this tastes like a much older malt (say, upwards of 30 years).
    • Finish
      90 90
      Grapefruit, soft oak tones, old-age aromas of cotton wool and wood polish. Long, with prominent (but not overdone) wood influence.
