Whisky Reviews for Mannochmore 2008 ElD

    Another 2021 SMoS Series Mannochmore from Parcel No. 7. He is older than the Mannochmore from Parecel no. 5 and slightly darker. This is also a bourbon cask aging. Let's see if he has more to offer.

    • Nose
      In the nosing it appears a bit more mature, but it doesn't matter much. Light fruits, here too some bitterness and a slight solvent note from the alcohol. With a few drops of water, a few vanilla notes are released and give the aroma some structure and warmth. But that is all too little and not very attractive.
    • Taste
      The taste starts with a vanilla sweetness that is nice and oily on the tongue, but then quickly becomes alcoholic and bitter. There is hardly any fruit and the vanilla is not fresh, reminiscent of a vanilla bean that has been open on the kitchen cupboard for too long.
    • Finish
      Bitter and dry with an alcoholic note and too little oak spice.

      This whisky can't convince me of Mannochmore either. According to the Whisky Yearbook, Mannochmore is fermented for a long time - for that there should be more fruit notes, which I missed in both SMoSs I tried. In my opinion, both whiskys were not matured well in barrels that were too old and were therefore not able to develop. Too bad. This whisky costs around €60, which I don't want to spend on it.
