What they say
This fruity Speysider was distilled at Mannochmore in 2007, before it was filled into hogsheads which previously held Pedro Ximénez sherry. After 13 years (superstitions, be gone!) Càrn Mòr bottled the single malt in 2020 for the Strictly Limited series, with 1,551 bottles released at 47.5% ABV.
Official tasting notes:
Luxurious and oily with notes of rum-soaked raisins, prunes and treacle.
What I say
Celebrating Carn Mor’s relaunched range as parent Co. changes from Morrison & Mackay to Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers. The owners and operators of Aberargie distillery have revamped the three Carn Mor ranges; Strictly Limited, Celebration of the Cask and Family Reserve.

My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Golden ruby (14/20), medium tears and long, fine legs.
- Nose: Sweet jellied fruits, sweetie shop, dried fruits, prunes, raisins, pear drops, nutty walnut, maple & pecan pie, candied nuts, touch of polished walnut wood shop counter too.
- Taste: Oily, medium-full bodied, toffee, caramel, sugared almonds, milk chocolate coated raisins, cherry drops, rosey apples, pear drops and redcurrant jelly.
- Finish: Medium-long, strawberry marshmallows and rum & raisin ice-cream.
A delicious sweetie shop dram thanks to the PX maturation, absolutely delightful.

Just dramming this tonight. Often sherry casks can leave the juice a little turbid but there’s a lovely, bright ruby sheen to this and the taste is clean as a whistle, no sulphur at all. The light top notes of the Mannochmore spirit complement the sweetness from the casks. It’s pretty straightforward stuff but showcases some quality spirit and wood. I also bought the recent Linkwood PX release, also 13 years, and looking forward to it based on this purchase!
