Whisky Reviews for Mannochmore 1992 CWC

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.14 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    N: Reeking of bourbon, toffee, sour cream caramel, vanilla, cinnamon [Trident/Big Red] candy - giggly, heady nose. Later [like two days], theres some meaty plimsole.
    T: Peppery, zingy and uncompromisingly malt driven, sweet>sour, honeyed with fearless energy - yet its not brutal in any way. Serge: ‘cactus fruit’ - how brilliant is that guy?
    F: A little sherried sulphur along with the straight ahead creamish, chalk-ish, sour-sweet tannic malt. Even Nick liked the tannins, and i quote: ‘Damn, that's tannin I like’. Some of the nicest tannin I've had’
    C:  Big thumbs up for Mannochmore, always seems to make me smile.

    ‘Final thoughts’
    N: Dependable
    T: Tall, thick river reeds smeared in ripe bananas with some rubbery liquorice
    F: First, darkish chocolate [60% cocoa] with a dry waxiness moving to vanilla ice-cream [the scrapping left in the bowl]. Banana leaves linger.
    C: A fearless ’who wants it’ dram thats quite lovable if you’re game. I’m going to miss this bottle.

    Serge from Whiskyfun says:Mannochmore 16 yo 1992/2008 (53.8%, Exclusive Malts, cask #6600, 234 bottles) Mannochmore is famous for having given us Loch Dhu 10yo, the black whisky that’s supposed to be ‘the best whisky investment’ according to some ****ers on eBay. It’s also famous for their old Manager’s Dram 18yo, the whisky that was the closest ever to kerosene. And it was good! Colour: pale gold. Nose: ah yes, I remember the Manager’s Dram even more vividly now. Truckloads of cut grass, cut cactus (really), maybe agave, ginger tonic, damp clay and maybe tiny-wee whiffs of new plastic. I know that doesn’t sound too nice but it actually is. With water: perfect lemony/grassy whisky. Very classy. Hints of pine resin. Mouth (neat): excellent attack, sweet and fruity, with quite some cider apple (green apples will do), kiwis and lemons. More grass after that. Spectacularly assertive (man!) With water: once again, water worked perfectly. Beautiful clean but not simple whisky. Lemon pie. Finish: long, nervous, clean, perfect. Comments: great Mannochmore selected by David Stirk. Kudos. SGP:361 - 88 points.
