  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very nice sherried whisky, full of fruity and spicy scents and flavours. Very pleasant.

      Very fruity, berries, cherries, raisins. Floral as well, green of plants. Apples now. Quite some alcohol influence, without being punchy.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Quite powerful, spicy, pepper. Red fruits, berries, plums, raisins. Full body, some hints of licorice. Ripe orange. Even some honey.
    • Finish

      More smooth now, plums, spicy, berries. Pretty long finish. Still a bit spicy. Later on some tobacco remaining.

  4. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    On the first nose, it is waxy. Camphor, tiger balm, ointment. Even a little ether. At the same time, it is counterbalanced by a honeyed side, nuts, rough wood, liquorice. Light smoke is very pleasant. Italia grape pulp, very ripe pear. Wet talc, arnica. With a little water, a nice balance is achieved between the fruit and the ointment. A hint of citrus. Still honey on the palate, but this one is more earthy, with figs, and very quickly saturated with spices. Gray pepper, clove, cumin. Vanilla, lemon, it's a bit drying. A few grains of icing sugar. It's oily. Beautiful and long finish, still earthy, on old wood, cherry, a hint of anise, spicy on the tip of the tongue. Cola.

  5. Petrovitski scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Tasted this during a blind tasting. Tasty whisky. Nice fruity aftertaste. I find the price for this bottle a little less nice. That costs a few points deduction.
    Still a fine whisky and this one made me curious about other bottles from Mannochmore.
