Mannochmore 1999 Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail) Review

Mannochmore 1999 Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon and MacPhail) Mannochmore is yet another of those distilleries that i tend to enjoy but don't tend to pick up as much as i really should do.

One of the main malts in the Ballantines family of blended whiskies, there is usually a sweetness about this distillery that reminds me of other top quality dressing malts like Aultmore, they have a subtle quality as a single malt that enables them to bring out the flavours in others as part of a blend.

This has some really tasty buttery biscuit notes and a touch of fruity saltwater taffies, citrus fruit notes throughout and a rich palate that adds richer fruits and pepper spices. It's a really complex moving dram that keeps changing and offering more with every sniff and sip, a really tasty dram.

I don't appear to be able to find this available for purchase anywhere, so if you know where i can find one please let me know.

Thanks to Gordon & MacPhail for the Official Sample.

Tasting Notes & Details


Fruit saltwater taffies then a really extremely buttery biscuit base for a cheesecake, and some of that sweet citrus cheesecake filling, there’s also a sweet treacle like note that really draws you in and makes you want to sip it straight away


Sweet icing sugar, then a spicy note of ground pepper covered mixed fruit halves of fig, apricot, pear and date, lots of lovely notes in here, that changes and evolves, vanilla, cinnamon and chocolate all float in and out.


Sweet juicy tropical fruits tasty stuff
