Provenance marks the first series in Douglas Laing and Co's Exceptional Single Casks journey. For Provenance, DLC bottle extraordinary Single Cask Single Malts from a vast range of Scotland’s Whisky Distilleries. Each bottling is offered to you “as natural as it gets” – at 46% alcohol strength or higher, and without colouring or chill-filtration. Casks tend to be refill which helps to highlight each distilleries unique character.
Mannochmore distillery is found in the Speyside region, and is respected for producing light, esther driven malts.
This malt was distilled in December 2012 and matured for 8 years in a single refill hogshead before bottling in March 2021.
From the bottler: "Nose: Crisp, gristy and sugary with a big juicy barley hit as it warms, tailing with a citric quality. Taste: That same barley is much more to the fore alongside vanilla with warming spices and late espresso. Finish: Certainly sweet, with a heavily spiced autumn fruit style amongst that recurring barely" (FHL).
