Mannochmore - 2008 - 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Mossburn Vintage Casks No 16.
The Mossburn Vintage Casks range are a collection of exceptional Scotch Whiskies each issuing from a strictly limited and select batch of casks.
Each numbered release will only ever yield a finite number of bottles.
With eight washbacks and eight stills, Mannochmore lies at the other end of the ageing warehouses to its sister distillery Glenlossie, in the heart of the Speyside region close to Elgin. The stills are slightly thinner and taller than some in the Diageo estate, which emphasises the florality in the newly made spirit.
After ten years this has developed some malty fruit, candied cereal notes and orange-peel spice with a well-structured, firm finish where the dried fruit hangs on.
