Nose: Creamy homemade fudge and toffee sit with pink wafer biscuits, buttered bread and coconut macaroons. Popcorn and fresh linen are joined by chopped reed and flax for a slightly vegetal backdrop. Water expresses pancake mix and ginger spiced cookies alongside lemon drop candy and sunflowers.
Taste: A well-balanced arrival of apples and peaches followed by pepper and anise spicing. The mid palate offers sweetness with biscuits, buns, cake mix, white chocolate and vanilla pods before heading deeper with earthiness, and singed tart cases. Reduction adds lemons pith whilst expressing more of the cask with burnt toffee and additional vanilla influence.
Finish: Medium with earthy chocolate covered biscuits sitting with tinned apricot halves.
A rather precise and well-formed Mannochmore that doesn’t offer as much floralness as the name and description suggests, but it still entirely pleasant and worth exploring.
But don't take our word for it..
