  1. DenverbroncosDuke scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Despite his young age it was very good and interesting, it would have been exciting to be able to try it again after a long period of maturation

      Yellow fruits such as apricot, apricot, etc.
      Alcoholic, you can tell the relatively young age but still very tempting
    • Taste
      86 86
      Beautiful pear, amaretto, strong and alcoholic, but also sweet yellow fruits such as vineyard peach, spices and lots of vanilla
    • Finish
      83 83
      Very spicy and strong finish, medium length, slightly drying

    N,T&F: With fine clarity, this is a sweet-bitter bourbon-matured new make-y young malt that easily evokes its destined blend,… Chivas Regal? It is [SW]. No complaints. Just don’t expect any deep dram.
    C: This reminds us Tormore can make whisky but that it’s made almost exclusively for blends.

    105.25 Emperor’s Mess, Tormore 2010, First fill bourbon barrel, 56.7%

    Nose: Sweet eucalyptus, an almost cooling menthol sensation. Very sharp and spritely first five minutes. Dried herbs like thyme and some faint dry spices like cloves and cardamom. Kaffir lime leaves and perhaps lemon grass. Light roasted coffee beans drenched in syrup.

    Palate: More well mannered on the tongue, with intense sweets and again the same citric vegetal notes. Mouth feel is medium and the finish lasts for longer than your average seven year old whisky indicating a decent bourbon cask, although this is a little hard to dissect as the flavors are more tightly connected here compared to the nose. Very hard to drown, can take an ocean of water. It separates the flavors more, bringing out deffinable melon flavored ice cream and sweet after eight chocolate.

    Notes von der SMWS Website: https://www.smws.com/emperor-s-mess

    Ausgabepreis April 2019: 44,80 GBP

    "There was plenty of sweetness on the nose neat, jelly beans, candy canes, marshmallow meringues, rum spiked white chocolate chip cookies and tipsy tiramisu. Mouth-filling bursting with sweet and spicy flavours like in a hot Hungarian tomato - pepper stew (lesco) with an intense menthol finish of extra strong Fisherman’s Friend lozenges. The aromas diluted were still centred on sweetness; custard cream biscuits, coconut whipped cream, chocolate buttons and sugar kelp, however on the palate a complete transformation as we dug into a ‘Kaiserschmarrn’ (Emperor’s Mess) - fluffy shredded pancakes dusted with icing sugar and cinnamon served with whipped cream and blueberries."
