Whisky Reviews for Mannochmore 2008 NSS

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.57 points

  1. Bomshanka scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Initially rather tight, but after a few weeks really opens up and does show characteristics somewhat older than its stated age, which must be attributed to good casks. Balanced and calm, and dangerously quaffable for its ~55%
    • Nose
      89 89
      Red apples, strawberries, ripe dark plums, apple pie, whipped cream, cream caramel.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Warm stewed fruits, citrus spray, lemon, ripe oranges, strawberries again (always a winner), slight salt, aged balsamico.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Fading on sweet fruits, citrus and chalk. Medium to long. Lingering white pepper corn.

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant whisky, fruity and sweet, and pretty powerful.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very fruity and intense, ripe fruits, apples. Also some prunes. Quite some alcohol. Some sweetness now as well, a bit mineralic, chalky.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Quite some power, pepper, and a lot of fruitiness. Citrus, floral, intense. Vanilla. Some orange later on.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Still quite powerful, very fruity again. A touch of bitterness, grapefruits. Still pretty intense. Then vanilla sweetness, pretty long finish,some wood now. Later on the bitterness gets less, more like orange zest.

      Dry, appricot flavour, nice mouth feeling.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium - long. Again fresh fruits and a small amount barley, yeast.
