    It's not a Tormore that I'll buy a whole bottle of. The bitterness is interesting between all those incredibly sweet sherry bombs.

      Port is indeed present, sweet, Brussels waffles, butter.
    • Taste

      Firm to the alcohol, spicy, fruity, coffee, bitter.

      The finish is short. Again spicy with a bit of bitterness.

    I've always been very biased when it comes to port wine barrels - so far it's just extremely rarely appealed to me. This has been confirmed again here. Probably really tasty for port friends, but it definitely leaves me cold. Still, I really appreciate the ToF series and Michel's job of picking out the barrels! This Tormore is just simply stamped as uninteresting for me and the test trip continues.

      A heavy sweetness spreads. Cotton candy paired with Smurf ice cream. Candies with artificial Tuttifrutti flavor. Colorful candy pearls from childhood. An entire candy shop was robbed here. In addition caramel and nut nougat cream. Behind it pickled raspberries and jelly black currants. Plum jam and a very specific type of spread/jam from my childhood, which unfortunately I can't identify yet. Could also be some sweet medicine. Without the cask strength (which is super integrated, by the way) and the slight wood polish note that can be traced back to the cask, this could easily pass as a liqueur. It's amazing what comes across, but unfortunately too artificial and dominant for me - port is just not my thing.

      An oppressive sweetness that pushes itself forward in addition to the cask strength. The alcohol is again well integrated, even without diluting. Caramel and sweet nuts, I find the nut nougat cream here again. A light wood or polish note can also be found here. The sweetness is perhaps not quite as blatant as a result of the felling, but it is much less diverse. The malt now seems clumsy and even monotonous to me - a characteristic that I always notice about Port. It's just not mine, I can't do much with it.

      Again monotonous, the sweet wood polish forms an unspectacular end. Nutella and fresh hazelnuts fade away with a minimal alcohol note. Nothing wild, nothing bad, just pretty boring.
