"A lovely sweet, frothy, summery dram."

The perfect
SERVE

Mannochmore works best served in a traditional whisky glass, neat or with a little water.

Pairing
WHISKY &...

Mannochmore lends itself to sweet foods, and pairing beautifully with vanilla cheesecake.

WHISKY &...

Once the cheeseboard arrives, Mannochmore is more than capable of playing the part usually reserved for sherry.

Mannochmore 12 Years Old Flora & Fauna
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Smoky Rich Delicate Light

Region

An atypical Speyside.

Appearance

Pale gold or white wine.

Nose

Sweet and lightly malty, then some aldehydic notes emerge, with a whiff of brimstone.

Body

Light to medium in body, like a fine wine.

Palate

Fresh and clean – appetising with good acidity and a well-balanced dryness overall.

Finish

Surprisingly dry in the finish for a Speyside.

Information:

Distillery: MannochmoreTM

Age: 12 years old

Strength: 43% ABV

Place of Origin: Mannochmore

Region: Speyside

Taste:

in brief… This is not a typical Speyside; bite without complexity.

in a sentence… Surprisingly clean, dry and refreshingly direct - makes a good aperitif.

Nose:

The first impression is sweet and lightly malty, then some aldehydic (green sticks) notes emerge and a slight whiff of brimstone. After a while the green notes become green apples, and the sulphur notes more like carbon monoxide. With water, similar to the unreduced nose: fresh-fruity, with traces of 'Spangles' and acid drops, and still a hint of sulphur compounds in the background. Somewhat 'monochromatic' for a Speyside.

Expert Reviews
Insights from some of the best in the business

"Perfumed and fresh on the light, citric nose, with a sweet, floral, fragrant palate, featuring vanilla, ginger and even a hint of mint. Medium length in the finish, with a note of lingering almonds."

Gavin D Smith, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.159

"Rich, bonnie and complex. Not showing off, just beaming."

Martine Nouet 2002, Whisky Magazine, Issue 27

"Buttery, with lemon, sweet dough and floral notes on the nose, oily, malty and floral on the palate and with a relatively short finish."

Dominic Roskrow, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.159
