Whisky Reviews for Mannochmore 2006 SMWS 64.80

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.50 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N: Resinous and fibrous, most indicative of young, CS, single cask bottlings in general. Looking underneath the hood [with water, and time], there's a sweet lemon [Speyside character] and pineapple-bark fruitiness with a continuing resinous & fibrous, wood-pulp maltiness. It hints at coconut and leans more confidently towards [ice-cream] cellulose.
    T: Starts sweet and honeyed with a rum n raisin-toffee & lemon curd/pineapple direction, before a quick and salivating burst of honeyed, fruitiness. Then it’s chocolatey and a touch more pulpy before becoming [predictably] malty. With a soft mouthfeel, it displays more delicacy than the usual Mannnochmore robustness. 
    F: That maltiness takes on a fruity dry-oak, raisin & putty/malty-paste character with a decent length finish. Concludes beautifully. After-notes include coffee liqueur into liquorice before marzipan and more vanilla-pineapple.
    C: A touch less austere than i’ve found Mannochmore to be in general but it’s none the worst for it. Still with a strong malt base and solid form, this expression brings a sweeter<fruitier body with a number of references to Plantation's pineapple rum along the way. Super balance, highly recommended. Let's up the age with a slightly older Mannochmore from a 2nd refill cask WB.

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Golden oak

     Flavour profile: Young
    & spritely

    Take cover! On first nose we were dodging exploding tropical
    fruits from all angles. Pineapples, mangoes and guava. “Someone forgot to put
    the lid on the blender…” said one panellist. This was a real sunshine dram,
    with all of the vibrant colours of a tasteful Hawaiian shirt. On tasting neat
    we were leaving on a jet plane. Some were on a beach holiday with coconut
    suntan oil and ice cream cones. Others perched at the pool bar drinking piña
    coladas or banana milkshakes. The tropical character was maintained with water
    but everything was more silky and sweet. Balance was achieved on the palate
    with subtle spice and a drying oaky finish.

    Drinking tip: A shorts and t-shirt dram
