Mannochmore 2009 PX Finish
One of the benefits of having our own warehouse on site now is the attention we can pay to casks during finishing. In fact “finish” might be an awfully strong word in this instance, we might pinch Mark Watt’s term “rested” as it was only in the px cask (one of the wee mongrel 2 casks) for 3 months. Think of it more as PX salt and pepper, just the finishing touch, a PX garnish. We didn’t imagine this would be such a short finish but it really was all we needed to balance the original spirit with a little more depth and richness. This is intentionally NOT a sherry bomb. Great liquid, just not a lot of it unfortunately. The woodpecker is a nod to the OB releases.
Doesn’t say single cask on the label as it was finished in a different cask type to the original, but it is only liquid from one cask…
