Whisky Reviews for Mannochmore 1990 SMWS 64.90

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.33 points

  1. Nergal scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    SMWS tasting notes: The nose was ‘love at first sniff’ – spun sugar, golden meringues and manuka, dried mango and marmalade; toasted coconut, hazelnut and shea butter, polished antique furniture and lastly, rose-petals and nasturtiums. The silky smooth palate was ‘comfort in a glass’ –ginger fudge, brandy snaps, strawberry jam, acacia honey, salted caramel, sandalwood and chocolate florentines. The reduced nose had orange oil, sichuan pepper, marzipan, scented candles and aromatherapy sessions. The palate – well, we had so many words (amazing, heavenly, integrated) but agreed that none did it justice. After 26 years in ex-bourbon wood this was transferred to a virgin oak hogshead.
    Drinking tip: For sweet dreams or a coming home dram after a long journey.
