Mannochmore 13 Tasting Notes
Nose: Pineapple, peaches, and passionfruit. This super sweet and sumptuous whisky is vibrant and fragrant. A soft baking follows the fruit.
Palate: A depth of flavour hits the palate initially quite complex. As it begins to mellow and coats the mouth, individual flavours of peach, lemon and pear drops emerge. Plenty of pepper accompanies the cask strength. Subtle spices mingled with oak emerge following the vivacious fruit’s main event.
Finish: The warmth and delicate stone fruit is left in the aftermath. A rich round mouthfeel suggests a touch of dried spice on the end palate. The word moreish springs to mind.
About Alive and Kicking
Uncharted give all their whiskies a name. The name has to be tailored to the cask while also appealing to their slightly jilted sense of humour. This dram from one of the lesser seen distilleries is just so vivaciously vibrant. The scent of fresh tropical fruit can be detected from clear across the table. Zippy, aromatic and vibrant, vibrant, vibrant. This is one seriously spirited spirit - it is Alive and Kicking.
