    Light bodied, a pre-dinner dram.
    • Nose
      Fragrant and aromatic as freshly cut mint. A slight shade of peat. Roses?
    • Taste
      Light,tropical fruity flavours, lime,pineapple and cocoa.Buttery and creamy.Heather honey sweetness. Some pepper fruit acting as counterweight.
    • Finish
      Malty noses. Faint oak, vanilla and hazelnut hints. Trace of peat.

    [August, 2005]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 1273 that I bought for 66 Euro in June, 2005.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 85.  My notes state a typical fat and oily Rare Malts profile.

    ‘Rosebank on rocket fuel’
    N: Currently the oldest listed Mannochmore on WB [2017]. A powerful & strong chocolate malt. Even with water and then more water it's plain strong & so uncompromising. imagine Rosebank on rocket fuel and i kinda love it. Talking of roses, there are rose-water lemon notes after an hour or so and a little satsuma. Nothing like the fruit bowl of the previous Linkwood WB but moving closer to it.
    T: Strong again, in both abv and sheer punch. Simply smashes through like a defiant strike of a sharp yet heavy blade. Add water and,... no change. An hour later and it's settled a little, trading a little of it's sheer power for more density. It's also a little less, sharp! Descriptors of note: heavy hummus-buckwheat paste.
    F: Slightly bitter/sour, actually more bitter,... then sour - sour hummus with a touch of oily crisps at the death.
    C: Mannochmore makes me smile, it's so resolute, so gutsy, so obstinate - so of course, lots of people will hate this outright. In the last few years [2015-17], it's the SMWS that are presenting the best Mannochmore’s in my microcosmic whisky world. Let's stay with on the 'off the radar' radar distilleries and move to Teaninich WB.

    First sample from Magic Slims 3 Decades of MannochmoreNice smell, some citric fruits.

    Taste neat is to heavy and gone within a few seconds. With water you can taste some fruits but doesn't last and is too short.
