The Uncharted Whisky Co is delighted to unveil our latest single cask release… it’s Alive and Kicking. Bursting with fragrance, this 13 year old single malt scotch whisky harks from the glens of Speyside at the powerhouse distillery that is Mannochmore.
This whisky exudes vitality and tropical fruits and will yield just 308 bottles.
Release is scheduled for Late October
Pineapple, peaches, passionfruit burst onto the palate. Apparently my nose is a fan of alliteration. This super sweet and sumptuous whisky is vibrant and fragrant. A soft baking follows the fruit.
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 begin to emerge following the vivacious fruit’s main event.
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.
