Launched as part of Diageo's now discontinued Flora & Fauna range. Created in the early 1990s by United Distillers Vintners (what would later become Diageo), this range initially had no name and it was only when famous whisky writer Michael Jackson nicknamed it the 'Flora and Fauna' series (after the bottles’ wildlife themed labels) did it stick. This Mannochmore 12yo is one of the few releases from the lesser known Speyside distillery. Bottled at 43%.
Nose: The first impression is sweet and lightly malty, then some aldehydic (green sticks) notes emerge and a slight whiff of brimstone. After a while, the green notes become green apples, and the sulphur notes more like carbon monoxide.
Palate: Fresh and clean – appetising with good acidity and a well-balanced dryness overall.
Finish: Surprisingly dry in the finish for a Speyside.
