- Despite being filled with off-notes, this one is weidly interesting, but I can't rate it higher. I find it bad in a nice way, if that makes any sense.
Tons of farmy notes here with hay, dung, rotten grass, overripe apples. There is some sherry influence which becomes more apparent in time, but it's rather dirty as well - rubber, sulphur, some fresh berries. Alcohol.
Rich, intense, spicy. Blackcurrant and cherries are there at first and the moment I thought that the taste will be better than the nose would indicate, the notes of rubber and sulphur strike again.
Hot, mouthwarming, very spicy with some reminiscent sherry cask notes and a whiff of sulphur at the very end.
- TASTING NOTE by G&M;
Colour: Golden amber.
Nose: Creamy toffee notes with hints of milk chocolate. Well toasted malt
and fresh red summer berries os present on the nose. A marzipan note
Palate: A burst of chololate initially with more delicate chilli spices emerging
afterwards. Smooth and creamy with a nutty edge - walnuts.
Nose: A pronounced coconut milk nose with hints of light esters. Sweet and
fruity influences - green apples.
Palate: Initially mouth warming - peppery. A subtle charred oak notes emerges,
with a hint of dark chocolate.
Finish: Long and drying.
Cask Type(s): Refill Sherry butt.
Whisky Style: Softer, yet still complex cask strength whisky.
- Interesting combination of notes: fruity, creamy and spicy at the same time.
My first encounter with Tormore and quite a nice one.
Creamy caramel, overripe apricot, vanilla, orange, butter, pepper, ash and a whiff of fish bait.
Butterscotch, milk chocolate, apricot, chilli pepper, orange and creamy vanilla. Strangely, water actually makes it more bitter. Not recommended! Very easily drinkable at full strength anyway.
Caramel fudge, pepper, vanilla, apricot, oak and almond.
