70cl / 45.1% ABV
REGISTER NOW

A very special Mannochmore sourced from a single small experimental batch exposed to a highly unusual maturation. First housed in refill casks, then in unusual, highly active virgin European Oak for almost three decades has revealed a whole new character. The pale and youthful whisky has evolved into a dark and intriguing spirit, lean and smooth in texture.

 

The powerful taste of striking dark orange marmalade is cut with drying wood spice before spiralling into endless layers of deep bitterness.

 

Bottled: 06.12.21 | Refill cask, untreated virgin European Oak

Tasting Notes

 
Appearance

Rich rosewood with ruby lights.

Nose

A gentle and almost enigmatic nose, dry overall, which initially gives little away. After a while a suggestion of polished leather emerges, perhaps edging towards scented wax furniture polish, on a base of hard toffee, with vanilla notes.

Body

Medium.

Palate

Lean and smooth in texture, while the powerfully bittersweet taste is immediately striking. The powerful taste of striking dark orange marmalade is cut with drying wood spice before spiralling into endless layers of deep bitterness.

Finish

Medium to long, lightly spicy and very drying, with a bitter-sweet nutty-spicy aftertaste.
