  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [July, 2022] Recently I had an excellent 13-years old Mannochmore 2008 vintage bottled by The Whisky Agency (TWA, WB208848) that I scored astonishing 91 point (really!) - so I am very curious if this sibling is of the same quality...

    ...and it is good too, but not as excellent as the TWA. This is an easy quaffable and enjoyable dram which I would serve to my friends without doubts anytime, but I would not buy another bottle (like I did with the TWA). Worth to try.
    • Nose
      87 87
      The colour is amber and the nose offers a fresh and impressive profile of barley sugars, spices and nuts. Contrary to the TWA the fruits are very shy here but nonetheless it is nice to sniff - not more, not less.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The taste recalls the profile of the nose with molten sugars, vanilla and other spices (ginger, peppers), grassy and floral notes, waxes and nuts. All nicely balanced in a borderline wooden structure which is not over the top yet. Again this is easy and enjoyable to sap - not more, not less.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The dram arrives warming and coating on my palate with some minor bitter-astringent moments (tannins at work). The finish is medium to long and turns more to the bitter tannic side without getting unpleasant. Some water turns both nose and taste more punchier while a further reduction releases autumn floral aromas in the nose (dry hay stacks) and toffee and liquorice flavours on the palate while the bitter tannic impressions vanish almost completely. I clearly prefer this dram reduced to about 45% abv.
