STRICTLY LIMITED MANNOCHMORE 2010 700 mL
Nose: This has a firm and fairly dry opening – rustling corn husks – though as it opens you start to get banana chews as delicate aromas shyly reveal themselves: fresh pineapple, lemon, wild rose and, with water, vanilla ice cream and apple.
Palate: That almost bashful quality is there on the palate as well, though here those fragrant floral elements jostle against the warmth of the alcohol. Adding some water allows it to relax a little especially in the middle of the tongue without losing any of the brightness. It remains lifted, now with some green grassiness.
Finish: Spiciness with some rose.
