MANNOCHMORE 2012 The Fruity 40%
Founded in 1971, Mannochmore has, despite its young age, already experienced a period of closure between 1985 and 1989. In 1996, the distillery caused a stir with the release of its famous black whisky Loch Dhu, which people are still talking about 20 years later. Whether exotic, white, juicy or well-cooked, the fruits revealed in the palette of flavours and aromas of this young bottling are all precise and natural. Showcased particularly well, they are underscored by notes of malted barley, new oak, cut grass and well-defined spices.
Profile: the rich initial nose evokes sweet pastries (frangipane) and fruit (pineapple, banana). Allowed to breathe, it is covered in a layer of vanilla. The neat attack reveals one fruit in particular, Mirabelle plum. The mid-palate is mentholated, before new fruits (pear, apple) make their entrance. The ample finish is even more exotic (mango, lichee) and spicy (coriander, dill). Exclusive to LMDW
