  6. p4blo scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    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.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      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.

    WITHOUT WATER:

    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

    lingers.

    Palate: A burst of chololate initially with more delicate chilli spices emerging

    afterwards. Smooth and creamy with a nutty edge - walnuts.

    WITH WATER:

    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.

    Body: Medium.

    Finish: Long and drying.

    Cask Type(s): Refill Sherry butt.

    Whisky Style: Softer, yet still complex cask strength whisky.

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Interesting combination of notes: fruity, creamy and spicy at the same time.

    My first encounter with Tormore and quite a nice one.
    • Nose
      Creamy caramel, overripe apricot, vanilla, orange, butter, pepper, ash and a whiff of fish bait.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      Caramel fudge, pepper, vanilla, apricot, oak and almond.
