Mannochmore 1982 (Liquid Sun)

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: Mannochmore

Mannochmore is one of these active distilleries that is hardly seen on the market. It’s modern (founded in 1971 on the grounds of the Glenlossie distillery) and focused on producing blender’s whisky. Here’s a 28 year-old single cask bottled by Liquid Sun.

 

Mannochmore 1982 Liquid SunMannochmore 28 yo 1982 (49,4%,
Liquid Sun 2011, bourbon hogshead, 131 btl.)

Nose: slightly neutral start on malt and grassy notes. Green apples and lemon. Some flowery top notes as well. Then grows a bit warmer, with quite a lot of hay. Soft leather. Rather elegant, it seems younger than it actually is and the fruitiness is pleasantly dry and mineral at the same time. Mouth: quite soft at first, with orchard fruits, grassy notes and some spices. There’s a nervousness / hotness with herbal notes growing over time. Again an interesting mix of sweet notes and lots of dry, spicy (even slightly earthy) elements. Finish: medium length, spicy with a bitter edge.

A Mannochmore with a pleasant “green” fruitiness and quite some grassy / mineral notes. Give it some time to open up.
Around € 110.

Score: 85/100
