Whisky Reviews for Mannochmore 2001 SMWS 64.56

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.00 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Today, four cask strength SMWS Mannochmore’s ‘head to head’:

    64.56 - 64.58 - 64.61 - 64.67
    N: Light green and light sweet - [silverskin] pickled onions, subtle candied notes and a husky/hessian mat/rug plonked on top. The oak is on active mode so could make for a bumpy ride.
    T: … and certainly it needs plenty of water to restrain that cask strength. What translates is a loud Speyside performer with limited tricks. Even 50/50 water can’t tame this first fill.
    F:  The rawness dominates the subtler notes. Only the vanilla is tough enough to co-exist. 
    C: The whisky from this cask may well be improved on the 2nd fill as aside from the intensity, the character of the cask [similar to Noah’s Mill bourbon] isn’t bad at all.
