MMM - Mark & Manny's Malts

Great Taste in Small Numbers

Tasting Notes

Old Rhosdhu 1993

Color Gold

Nose Incredibly good and fruity nose. Apples, pears, mandarin and pineapple – on a pancake and sprinkled with icing sugar. Very soft and seductive. Hint of Sirop de Liège and marzipan. Delicious soft bitter nose from grapefruit. Very, very good.

Palate Perfect drinking strength! Nicely oily and mouth coating. Fruity on litchi, sultanas, apple juice, grapefruit (pith included) and pineapple. Wow, this just stumbled into the top 5 of my favourite MMM releases (okay, sorry for the self-promotion, but it’s true). Soft prickle from the spices. Excellent balance.

Finish The finish is bittersweet, softly drying and… yes, this makes me long for another dram. Oh, well, YOLO.

Comments Tasted blind you just might confuse this with Littlemill, I kid you not. The best malt I’ve tried from Loch Lomond so far. But honor where honor is due: it was Manny who convinced me to bottle this, despite the higher price category. But really: worth every penny!
