  1. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A beautiful old style whisky, which I enjoyed very much. The taste is a little bit watery and would have done better with a higher ABV. But the nose is just perfect! Delicious!
    • Nose
      Dried fruit, raisins and a lovely scent of Turkish delight. Figs. A hint of tobacco, quite enjoyable. Orangepeels in the background. Then ginger and cinnamon. Cloves too. This is sooooo good!
    • Taste
      It’s starts very fruity, but also leather and tobacco. Red fruit, with a hint of very sweet strawberries. Oranges and a some dried fruits too. More cinnamon and some cloves in the background. A little bit watery where it’s not really living up the the nose.
    • Finish
      The finish is mid-long and mouth watering. Slightly peppery.

    Colour: worn bronze

    Nose: oh my this just says an old style whisky. There's plenty in here with maltiness, figs, stewed plums, dark chocolate and raisins. Walnuts and worn leather, a brass rubbing, oranges and cloves. There's a touch of tobacco smoke and baked apples with honey as well. Just epic!

    Taste: a luscious texture is apparent featuring more oranges, barley sweets, figs and apricot jam. It's madness that so much flavour is noticeable at a decade in age. A mineral quality, followed by a sugar rush with dark chocolate and cherries.  

    Overall: immediately a top 10 whisky for me. It's a true eye opener and in all likelihood there are whiskies older than a decade in here but not by that much given the date Tormore starting producing. It begs the question why the current range tastes nothing like this whatsoever? A perfect example of how whisky has changed in the past few decades and not often for the better.

  8. MaltMartin scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Should have been a decent daily single malt in the old days, but nowadays there are far better standard OB's available.
    • Nose
      Lots of maltiness and cereal. Mashy. Hazelnuts. Some leafy notes. Whiff of smoke at the background.
    • Taste
      Light and clean. Sweet barley. Apple juice. Roasted almonds. Pine. Metalic notes as well.
    • Finish
      Not that long. Dry. A little pepper. Clove. Quite bitter.
