Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: very expressive with sweet sherry notes, fruit gums and tons of vanilla. Very warm and highly sensual. Fruit cake with candied orange bits. Raspberries. Hints of tobacco. Just enough oak polish. A whole range of spices and mint. Very complex, lots of different elements, but they join up perfectly. Mouth: dried fruits again with added nutty flavours. Apricots. Toast with orange marmalade. The spices are still here: pepper, ginger, cinnamon. Quite herbal after a while. Finish: quite long. Spicy with some drying oak. Wonderful chocolate.
This Mannochmore 18yo made my day. Very attractive with big spicy notes and subtle sherry. The insider’s choice of Diageo's 2009 special releases.
