A single-cask from Mannochmore tonight. An interesting distillery in that it only produces for 12 months then closes for another year before re-opening and beginning the cycle again. Glenlossie is the sister distillery and operates the same scheme, staggered annually with the same workforce.
Anyway, this is a rich sweet dram: Nutella is right, that thick and nutty chocolatey spread that my 4-year-old loves so much.
Lots of warm oak and a light touch of vanilla. Coffee (well, Mocha), over-ripe strawberries and slightly oily on the finish.
It’s really good, the palate doesn’t quite live up to the amazing nose but it’s a very enjoyable dram all the same.
