12 year old Mannochmore that hails from two ex-bourbon hogsheads that were combined and then ‘rested’ in a brandy butt for three months. Mark Watt has helpfully posted up his thoughts on why ‘finishing’ is not his preferred term for ‘additional maturation’ over on the Watt Whisky blog – it’s still rather the Wild West of the whisky terminology world. His post also includes additional details about the story of this Mannochmore. Bottled at 54.8% ABV it’ll set you back £61.95 from The Whisky Exchange.

One of two ex-port re-racks in this month’s outturn – this Mannochmore spent 12 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead before being moved into a 1st fill port barrique.
