  1. Aza scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    That’s a really nice fruity old school dram, the sherry markers are barely noticeable.
    Here we have a perfect distillate who aged perfectly in a charming cask, that kind of cask is rare, some kind of profile we didn’t see these days!

    Old school bomb ! ;-)

      Honey first, than a lot of fruit ! Yellow fruit basket, a bit of wax too.
      Alcohol not present

      The mouth is in a perfect continuity with the nose !
      Basket of yellow fruit, a bit of honey, quite waxy too and there is also a bit a freshness, mint-y freshness , that reminds me of an old Loch side from the 60´s ! (Well the mint here is more hidden, integrated)
      There are a little bit of pine wood too.

      Looong !
      Freshness of the mint and fruit first , than the fruity side disappear and the minty freshness stays super long !

      Wow nice one!

    Part of the Cask was bottled for the Nantes Whisky Club. I added the picture with the label showing

    Fruity and fresh. Multi-layered and complex. Demanding and rewarding. I'll be a fan then, okay? Full review (in german): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2020/06/17/ein-paar-gut-gereifte-tormore/

    Water: If he doesn't actually need it, let's try it anyway: 3-4 drops bring out additional leather notes, some wax and old oak furniture also appear

    Conclusion: conflicting columns. The nose is great, but somehow I find it a little too weak on the tongue to be completely enthusiastic
    • Nose
      88 88
      Orange peel, some toffee, subtle spices, well balanced, a few notes from the sherry barrel come across, especially hazelnut aromas, a little mint and honey, the alcohol is noticeable with slight stings
    • Taste
      86 86
      very soft, the alcohol from the nose is completely gone, lots of tropical fruits such as mango, pineapple and oranges again, plus some herbal notes
    • Finish
      86 86
      medium to long, here the herbal notes come through a little more, but the fruit from the taste is still present, slight oak notes behind, but no bitterness
