Whisky Reviews for Mannochmore 2008 JE
12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.55 points
- Quite a dark oloroso matured whisky. I assume not much of Mannochmore is left.. It’s not really my type of whisky as it’s quite strong on dark caramel, ground coffee, dark bitter chocolate with some cracked pepper and dry leaves aromas. Only some bits and pieces of raisins, prunes and dark forest fruits. I like my oloroso matured whiskies more sweet and fruity.
- It's dark color somehow attracts and raises some high expectations. At first, it looks a little dissappointing then, but this one really deserves some patience and time.
After some time, it is getting more and more intense in nose and taste, and do the sherrycask influences their work with a lot of chocolate, coffee, prunes. Very enjoyable one.
Fruity and spicy, prunes, caster sugar, milk chocolate. Surprisingly little alcohol for its high Abv. Ripe red apples, raisins, coffee or cappuccino actually.
Soft and smooth, with later on some tickering feeling on the tongue. Fruity, red fruits, prunes, some chocolate, caster sugar again, coffee. Full taste, raisins as well.
Still some tickering mouthfeel, dark red fruits, prunes, chocolate, pretty intense. pretty long finish. In time it is getting more and more intense. Dark chocolate remains in the finish for a long time.
