Review #953 – Mannochmore 22yr Gordon & MacPhail 1994 Bounty Hunter Selection

This is my first brush with a Mannochmore expression. It is bottled by Gordon & MacPhail after being selected by Bounty Hunter Wine in Napa, California. It is aged in sherry casks and bottled at cask strength without coloring or filtering.

For those of you that don’t know of, or haven’t heard of Mannochmore, that’s alright. I hadn’t until I bought this. Mannochmore was founded in 1971 by Haig & Co and produced spirit until 1985 when it was shuttered for 7 years. After several years of producing grain whiskey, it produced its first single malt in 1992. This expression was distilled in 1994, so shortly after their malt beginnings.

Review #932 – 1792 Full Proof, Rural Inn Selection, Summer 2016

This is day 5 in my short series investigating various 1792 Full Proof Selections.

1792 Full Proof is typically a small batch, proofed release from Barton in Kentucky. Bottled at 125pf, it is hard to tell what the original barrel proof was for these releases, but all the same, 62.5% ABV isn’t a bad number to run with. This is very similar to Knob Creek’s Single Barrel Reserve, which is a release consistently diluted to 60% ABV and I like those all the way from fine to amazing. In this series, I’m comparing a variety of Single Barrel releases from the Full Proof lineup, selected by various stores, vendors and societies in the USA.
