4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.41 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    [October 2017]  Mannochmore is (in)famous for the ridiculous "Loch Dhu" whisky where some stupid Diageo guys added that much caramel to a young spirit until it was black (unfortunately it tasted rather like a liquid licorice stick, disgusting...).  But this does no justice to Mannochmore and I had several nice drams in the past and very few below average only.  This bottling was recommended to me so I bought a bottle for as much as 339 Euro (what usually is too pricey for me).

    The colour is amber and the texture shows late very slow legs and fat sticky tears (great!).  The nose is absolutely adorable on old style whisky aromas (OBFs) that make these old drams so delicious.  It is a creamy toffee aroma in a honey/wooden setting with fresh citric and other fruits (apples, pears) and some shy herbs.  All nicely balanced and delicate, one to explore for hours (take your time on that!).  The initial mouthfeel is just as the texture promised:  greatly coating and warming with no distracting moments.  The taste is even better:  Lots of different honeys mix with treacle and liquorice to a delicious profile that is imbbeded in a firm wooden structure (exactly at the right strength to balance the enormous sweetness).  It all rolls in different waves and layers over your taste buds that offer new impressions one after the other (milk chocolate, spices, herbs, even a hint of smoke).  Close to perfection!  The finish is very long and offers a nice mocha flavour in addition.  The woods are now softer than on the palate so all fades out very nicely.  No bitter or adstringent moments at all (after 37 years!).  Really, really good.  

    Some water releases even more aromas and smoothes the wooden flavours (it is worth a try) but nevertheless I like the power of the neat dram more.  But if you have more than just a small sample at your hands try it a little reduced as I can imagine that many connoisseurs might like it better that way.

    Now, that is why I am into whisky!!!  A close-to-perfect maturation of a high-class spirit with an unbelievable complex profile that takes literally hours to explore.  Certainly not suited for all that go for the "ooompf" in their whiskies - but a perfect dram for lovers of delicateness and complexity.  I bought another bottle (it is not often that I state a whisky is worth 300+ Eurobucks)...

      Honey. Greener apples now citrus, more towards the bitter end. Pepper. Pine. Very nice and mouthwatering taste.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long finish some woody notes. Oranges. Still fruity and a bit honeyed

  3. ARDBERG scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Can't really add to hs305 tasting note. The mocha note when chweing the dram was so unexpected and fantastic. The liquorice appears late in the finish and coats the tongue when the dram has already left the building, eh, mouth.

    Cadenhead Notes:

    Summer 2015 Small Batch, Another great single cask small batch

    Nose    Fresh and creamy; citrus notes along with malteasers and runny toffee. We know this is going to be an amazing dram just from the nose.Palate    Honey, quite syrupy and lemony. Cedar wood; blood oranges and a box of the finest milk chocolates full of amazing sweet fruitiness. This was well worth the wait.

    Finish    Soft and so very rich and long. Milk chocolate covered biscuits with subtle sweet woody hints. A dram with a rich complexity that deserves to be savoured and never shared ( Yes you can be selfish for once )
