  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful whisky, a nice mixture of sweet- and fruitiness, with a nice powerful body, without being too hefty. Very versatile
    In the body, there seems to be some split between a smooth creamy layer and a sparkling one. Very pleasant.

      Very fruity, ripe fruits. Rhubarb, citrus, apple pie. Then more sweetness arrives, waffles, powder sugar. Tropical fruits, mango. Full scent. Sweetness and fruitiness have a continous battle who's in front. Finally, sweetness takes over. Caramel.

      Powerful, sparkling, ripe fruits, with a smooth creamy touch underneath. Nice experience, where there appears to be some two-track body: a smooth, creamy layer, and a spicy sparkling one, tickering the tongue.

      More smooth now, when sweetness dominates now, vanilla. Still sparkling. Some citrus and grassy notes, caramel. Still tasty and full, very long finish. Some warming feeling in the body.

    Overall, this was not as tropical and fruity as the last Tormore I reviewed, but it was still quite good. I would consider this a perfect summer evening dram— the sort of thing you sit and relax with as the hot day fades to cooler nights. It would also be a great candidate for my category of “bathtime drams,” the drams great for sipping while soaking— a category otherwise dominated by Glen Grant.

    • Nose
      Tropical fruits, dried wood, and subtle chalk. Fragrant and tropical with mango, passion fruit, and lemon curd upfront while a woody undercurrent of rattan and sandalwood ran in the background. Hints of lime and coconut punctuated the tropical vibes while crisp, slightly tart green apple appeared with more time.
    • Taste
      Medium-bodied with tropical fruits, orchard fruits, and wood. An almost effervescent crispness hit the palate first with notes of dried pineapple, Korean pears, and green apples. A white-wine dryness settled on the mid-palate as apple blossom and dried mango brought a sauvignon blanc or champagne to mind. Rattan furniture and apple skins lingered at the end. A few drops of water brought out more citrus upfront and accentuated a bitterness at the end.
    • Finish
      Lingering tannic dryness and dried tropical stone fruit.
