- My first Mannochmore is very exciting and unusual for me. Unfortunately, I only had 2cl. Would have liked to spend more time with this bottling.
Fresh sour fruits. Lime. Kiwi. A little green apple. An elegant whisky, which at first retains nobility. The fine-sour aroma also evokes associations with white wine and black tea.
Surprisingly intense on the tongue compared to the restrained nose. The citrus fruits are also back shortly, but then the sour notes turn rather into associations of milk and cheese. On the palate it tastes sweeter with hints of chocolate and cinnamon.
Mineral and slightly astringent but not unpleasant. Overall, medium.

Glenlossie/Mannochmore, I like it when it gets older!
The price of this bottle is a few times to high, but still great whisky.
- I really liked the nose. Mouth was enjoyable too, just a tad too flowery for me.
Tasting note from october 2017.
Apples, pears, varnish and spices. With aeration, exotic fruits. Slightly floral. Mineral notes too.
Apples again. Flowery and tart. Slightly citrusy. Peppery.
Long, fruity and peppery.
- http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=260 Color : Chardonnay / white wine Nose : The nose can be described in one word: cocktail fruits! With everything that belongs to it - done. Taste : Soft and fruity-sweet, reminiscent here of the fruit mix of the nose without prominent dominance of a fruit. The delicate, peppery spiciness hardly plays a significant role in this fruity cocktail. Finish : Medium long - sweet and fruity finish . Comment: Well, here you come with a taste description already to its limits! Apart from this mix of cocktail fruits, there is little to nothing to write down. Thus, the comment here is almost longer than the Notes. Too one-dimensional - a pity! 84 points (nose: 85 / taste: 84 / finish: 83)
- Serge (Whiskyfun.con) says:
Mannochmore 28 yo 1988/2016 (47.9%, Antique Lions of Spirits, bourbon, 267 bottles)
A very Moon-Import-The-Birds-esque new bottling by some transnational
friends. Viva la Europa! Remember Moon Import used to be, to my
knowledge, the first bottlers to add pictures that had strictly nothing
to do with whisky to their labels. Cars, costumes, ships... and birds.
Many do that now. Colour: white wine. Nose: very crisp, mineral, with
whiffs of wet limestone and many unripe green fruits. Kiwis, perhaps,
apples, rhubarb… All that before it tends to resemble the Fässle more
and more, which can’t be bad news. Touches of soapwort, fresh butter,
grist... Mouth: shall I copy-and-paste from the above? The two whiskies
are almost identical, but I do not think it’s a shared cask. Super good.
Finish: same. Comments: hurray, we’ve now got two favourite
Mannochmores! This one is maybe a tad more ‘cerebral’ than the other. SGP:561 – 87 points.
