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.

Comments

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.

Color
Amber
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.

Comments

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

My first encounter with Tormore and quite a nice one.

Nose

Good nose! Loads of sherry in the guise of caramelized fruit, nuts, figs with a hint of nougat and honey. Chocolate too. Nicely seasoned with camphor and cinnamon. Oxo! A pinch of salt. Balsamico? Complex!

Taste

It caresses the tastebuds, silky soft. A wonderfully sweet dram with loads of spices. Cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon. Honeysweet with a sour touch. Orangettes. Plums. Touch of coconut and a wonderfully fresh twig of mint. The oak takes care of a slightly drying and bitter note.

Finish

The finish is warm on spices and oranges.

Comments

I admit, I was not expecting much. But this is one helluva whisky! Not a swimmer though, so be careful when you add water.
