Mannochmore 28 year old 50.8% Bladnoch Forum Bottling


Mannochmore 1982 (28 year old) 50.8%
Bourbon Hogshead 2852
A lovely nose with a veritable bucketful of juicy fruit and honeyed barley along with plenty of supporting vanilla oak and spices. Over time it develops a touch of white fruit and a floral top note. Very luscious!
A big, expressive palate. Voluptuously honeyed with plenty of gentle, earthy spice. Piquant alcohol cleans the middle and allows the spices to run riot on the finish. An exceptional whisky!

With water the nose is even more luscious and juicy. Now displaying masses of semi-tropical fruit all coated with the most gorgeous pure honey imaginable. The palate is lighter and softer, now showing some fleshy banana fruit and botanical notes now the alcohol has been tamed. Still it is wonderfully honeyed, and there is even a slight peat note and finishing with an oak flourish.
