    Even as I write my conclusion rests the creamy buttery walnut-malt mixture on the tongue and does not seem to want to end. As an avowed Sherrytunte, I'm very positively surprised by this Tormore. The extremely fruity and sweet nose makes you hungry for more and also tastes convincing me this bottling all along the line. A delicious and tasty malt for entertaining hours with friends and family. I like it!
    • Nose
      Rich and bright amber shines in the glass, on the glass wall an oily streak has formed from which dissolve syrupy and tough drops. Sweet vanilla and powerful malt swells out of the glass, dark honey drips on fruity apricot pieces and melts into a sweet fruit mass. Sugar and a hint of fermented fruit are now the basic flavor, juicy peach and honey-infused apricots give the nose at the moment an extreme fruitiness and sweetness. The alcohol is harmoniously integrated despite Cask Strength and supports the sweet fruit flavors magnificently. The malty fruit note is permeated by a hint of popcorn, slowly green apple gives the nose a grassy impression. Slightly sour flavors and subtle citrus flare up briefly before the sweet apricot returns and invites to the first sip.
    • Taste
      Dark and heavy malt sweetness with unripe apples and subtle grapefruit flavors dominate the first sip. Subtle wood sharpness develops, a hint of pepper and salt settles over the tongue. Yes, in the taste and especially on the tongue, the alcohol is then noticeable. Bock malt sweets melt in the mouth, butter biscuits become mushy under the tongue, the citrus aromas and the tart grapefruit return. Chubby warmth spreads in the mouth, a slight tingling and bizzling massages the inside of the lips. Slowly also the intense apricot of the nose comes to the fore, dark malt mixes with the stimulated saliva. Cotton candy, Turkish honey, walnuts and finely tart wood elements play together and stimulate salivation. Slowly, the great flavors and taste goes slightly harsh over the finish.
    • Finish
      Subtle tart wood flavors mingle with dark malty sweetness. Dried and old apricots are tasty in the background, the bock malt sweets are suddenly back. The harsh wood, the dark malt and the dried fruits mix to a sticky mass and stick oily on the palate. Butter dissolves from the viscous mass and flows over a shortbread lying on the tongue. Slowly the finish ends with its tart wood note and remains in memory for a long time with its walnuts melted in butter.

    Nice, refreshing nose. Strong start. Herbal, malty on the tongue. In the finish, however, an unsuitable, metallic note for me. This bothers me and prevents a higher rating, which the malt would have deserved according to the nose and taste.

    From the nose typical Bourbon barrel, summery fruit and vanilla, in the taste and finish, I feel it as something out of round
    • Nose
      young, slightly woody pears straight from the tree, peach, getting sweeter, it mixes plenty of vanilla, honey melon, then he shuttles into the floral and woody over
    • Taste
      first restrained, then only tingling and slightly grainy, sawdust, not oily as I had expected
    • Finish
      Mouthwashing, dry and sandy, even a subtle bitterness remains

  5. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Was not an outstanding malt now. But I did not find him bad. At the time, I bought the bottle for the good cause. And that was worth it to me. Nice action.
    • Nose
      First a decent hint of citrus fruit. Lemon. Then comes malt sweetie. Overall, a lot of grain. I'll tell you some bircher muesli. Flour. I also have bread notes. A little vanilla. Again citrus fruits. But now in the form of a lemon cake.
    • Taste
      Again malt and cereals. The citrus fruits are now rather unripe tangerines. Natural cloudy apple juice with lemon. Maybe some crystal wheat. Then some sharpness. Ginger. Toasted butter toast with orange marmalade. Lemon cookies.
    • Finish
      Karamalz. Grapefruit. A little ginger. Then it gets drier.

  6. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Bright gold

      Starts very sour and citrusy. There are immature apples, mango and mandarins. It takes time for a tender sweetness to prevail. Reminds me just to Williams Christ liquor, in which a pear piece is soaked. Has something of cold steel and somehow powdered sugar.
    • Taste
      Sweet, mild onset. Then comes this steel component again. Paint mist and old wood. The taste is now much more bitter and fresher. A tea aroma comes along and significantly more spice. Hazelnut and dry waffles. In the background green banana and sour, unripe berries.
    • Finish
      Short to medium. Herb and a certain sweetness. Wood and somehow wet straw.

    Color: straw gold
    Nose: velvety fruitiness rises immediately in the nose, green apples, a little bit exotic and maybe a few ripe peaches alternate. The whole thing is accompanied by a dry haystack. With the 47.9%, he does not turn out too strong and you can feel this fine lightness, although the nose has a full but rather green body that would not need%. After some time in the glass, he even has something of grape juice just not so sweet. The spiciness of a Quercus Alba barrel of the last 22y floats in the background. Really nice and round, but not boring!
    Taste: just as oily as it is in the glass, it runs like a honey on the tongue, no sign of ChiliCatch. Directly you notice the absolutely bitter-free oak which combines very harmoniously with the gradually coming fruit flavors. A little forest honey is also part of the game. After 5 seconds, a light pepperiness comes on the tongue but is quickly gone. Somehow, pistachios are in my head although I could not define their taste exactly.
    Finish: The finish is quite long and medium heavy. Here are still a few tannins from the oak out which warm nice full-mouth. The sweetness of the grape juice can also be guessed here and is supported by hazelnut flavors. Added to this is a pleasant dryness on the palate.

    Enjoy a really nice summer painting after work, finally fresh air again. 87+ points. I like it very much.

  8. Dottore scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    First: big praise for this great charity campaign! After all, here was a 22 year old Tormore bottled and not a very young whisky.
    The nose shows the bourbon barrel with strong cereal notes and citrus notes. The alcohol is slightly stinging, vegetables (erroneous?) Notes (of carrot?) Make my nose a little uncomfortable.
    Alcohol is also noticeable in the mouth. Significant bitter notes quickly overcome the initial Bourbon sweetness. Again, association of vegetables. Sushi ginger sharpness.
    A really difficult malt for me, which unfortunately does not tear me off my stool. 79 points

    certainly good quality and well matured, no junk - but not at all my style - too much lemon bahh - boring - one-dimensional - all bottles are sold - I do not have to mince words - I do not want a dram of it. Nothing for Ungut - and no! I am not a sherry.
    • Nose
      Lemon, unripe apple, chalk, butter, lemon zest, citron, dusty mineral, subtly waxy, very dry
    • Taste
      soft, round, oily mild, lemon - from juice to peel, mint, eucalyptus, pineapple, resin
    • Finish
      warming, fresh, mint cooling - medium long
