Fable Hound Mannochmore Chapter Five 12 year old Scotch Whisky
Mannochmore is brought to life by the hound illustration. This is a fantastic example of this enigmatic distillery with an exciting house style that is fruity and fresh. Flavours of apple, tropical fruit and crème brûlée combine to create a sophisticated crowd-pleasing single cask, single malt. Matured in hogsheads to enhance the fruity house style of this Speyside distillery. Mannochmore has warehouses capable of storing more than 250,000 casks of maturing spirit. The distillery has its own dark grains processing plant, converting draft and pot ale into animal feed. The first official single malt was only released in 1992.
Nose: Ripe pear, honeydew melon, fine oak flavour. Ripened strawberries mixed with white grapes. Obvious aromas of pear, honey, herb garden.
Palate: Mango and pear storms forward followed by oak flavour. Very full-oily mouthfeel, the strawberry grape comes back, oily-crisp. A little forest honey. Candle wax mouthfeel. Green fruit. The finish is long. With water added - less of that toasted oak notes, bright green exotic fruit salad, fresh bread, very buttery.
Finish: An elegant expression from Mannochmore, even at 55% the honey-pear-mango essence with the most pleasant toasted oak notes. Fruit salad, long – medium finish very slightly astringent, spicy oak, fresh mint, creamy banana.
