Oh tight; all the time!
This is iconic Mannocmore. Dusty and rich, spicy and subtle with a really wonderful nose on it.
The nose is intense. Old books and dust, worn leather book bindings. Lots of pepper and sweet cask shavings. Sweet wood? Hit sand and a touch of mineral peat. Heather maybe...
The palate is sharp pepper bite, sweet honey follows. Bright sharp floral notes, daisy and hyacinth... Then more patisserie sweets and crushed flowers... Maybe flower shop notes, grassy vegetal notes.
The finish is wood spice, big and bright. Pepper spice and talc almost. So light but so strong. Long and drawn out, strangely Highland notes and some mead.
