  1. malthead-sven scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Unfortunately one of the weaker SMWS bottlings, only the fruity pear note and the good accessibility for water can delight.
    • Nose
      First, except stinging alcohol, not much, then fresh pears, zabaione yoghurt, solid honey, with water dissolves a fruity sweetness, Airwave's chewing gum, pineapple
    • Taste
      Woody, immediately begins to tingle, Maoam chewy sweets
    • Finish
      light wine gum, hay bales, little oak and at best medium long

    N: There she is, sweet and astringent - pretty much sums up Mannochmore, abound with youthful notes and a forthright cask. The spirit and cask work together to create a bunch of bananas, a little banoffee [mainly the caramel], spikey oak with a hessian nuttiness, waxy=rubbery candy sweets and a cocktail, hmm - Espresso Martini meets Pina Colada! Water gives sweet, meaty notes.
    T: Rips out of the stalls. Sweet as on the nose, and with the oak follows some sour-malty mash to balance things.This is Just like the Mannochmore profile i’ve got to know in the last year or two. It stays resolute with a candy chew all the way.
    F: Continues along similar lines, all with a steady hum
    C: Mannochmore tends to swim, which is good for CS expressions. Often 1st fill casks restrict longer-term potential through fuller/slower maturation, which is why 2nd refill casks can be the most desirable - yet 1st fill casks speed up the process and get the whisky ‘ready’ sooner. Being 1st fill I guess this one is ready just as it is.

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Silvery gold with peach highlights

    Flavour profile: Young & spritely

    The nose was clean and creamy (dragon fruit, milk chews),
    with plentiful fruit (candied orange, stewed apple, bitter lemon) freshly cut
    wood, beeswax, vanilla and hinted mint. The palate (with good viscosity and
    decent weight) was attractively sweet (brown sugar, honey, tinned mandarins,
    vanilla yoghurt) with a counter-balancing lively astringency of wood,
    crystallised ginger, red chilli and menthol. On the reduced nose, fruit salad
    chews and strawberry laces sat beside leather, pine, thyme and tiger balm. The
    palate retained some menthol and tannins, but vanilla slices, pineapple cake
    and flying saucers brought the whole thing to a satisfying balance and

    Drinking tip: To liven up otherwise dreary chores
