Mannochmore Managers Choice 2010 Release
70cl, 59.1% abv
This Speyside single malt from Mannochmore released in April 2010, is part of the third batch in the Managers' Choice series. Another expression to have been matured in a European oak Bodega Sherry cask, it is a lovely rich whisky at cask strength. However, with water, more of the classic Mannochmore floral and fruit freshness comes out. In both cases, a beautifully balanced malt whisky. Distilled in 1998 then matured until 2009, it is a limited edition of only 588 bottles.
Colour: Rich amber with a gun-metal tint.
Nose: Powerful yet sweet, with apricots, ginger and rich brown sugar.
Palate: Rich on the palate, with milk chocolate, orange marmalade and raisins.
Finish: Long and opulent with dark chocolate orange prevalent.
