Chapter 7 Monologue 11 Year Old Mannochmore
The Monologue series from Chapter 7 focuses on single cask releases from rare and unusual distilleries.
The Speyside distillery of Mannochmore is a whisky tended to lend great flavour to our famous blended whiskies. Every so often however, a wonderful cask pops up that has to be savoured as a single malt in its own right.
Cooked apples and fresh cereal dominate the nose here, with a progression into lemon cheesecake with a thick biscuit base on the palate. Chocolate pops up to say hello in a brief cameo. Some spices linger on the finish, ginger and perhaps some clove more than most. A lovely mouth sapping dram.
Bottled at 52.5%, this is a release of only 338 bottles
