Special Release September 2016
A rare official bottling of Mannochmore here, bottled at natural cask strength as part of the 2016 Diageo Special Releases. Interestingly, it's matured in fresh American oak and European oak casks as well as first fill ex-bourbon American oak barrels and ex-Sherry European oak butts.
An unusually rich Mannochmore that makes a highly competent and self-assured digestif at natural strength, yet reveals more complex depths with water. Perfectly mature yet retaining its distillery character, it’s a consummate study in appetising, charred bitter-sweet pungency. Only 3,954 individually numbered bottles available world-wide,
