Serge's notes: http://www.whiskyfun.com/2021/Today-Mannochmore-2008.html
I find this label utterly stunning, given that I'm a huge fan of woodcuts and antique ex-libris. Stunning, extraordinary, greatest label this year and so far… Hope they'll sell the artwork as prints. Colour: white wine. Nose: and the whisky's not half bad! Perfect mentholy and lemony and gristy doughs and breads, wonderful whiffs of fresh sourdough, lovely ueber-fermentary profile… This is almost orange whisky, as in orange wine. Indeed, homemade yoghurt too. Weissen beer. With water: we're bordering gym socks at times, but that's no problem. Fermentary, he said. Mouth (neat): and there, some lemony sweetness, limoncello, lemongrass, more white beer, dough, proper porridge… With water: butterscotch! Some wizard of cask management was involved here, I'd bet the farm on that. Finish: and there, praline, shortbread, beer, panettone, limoncello, tiny touch of soy… Comments: riiiiight up my alley. But Mannochmore? As in Loch Dhu?
