raithrover gave this whisky 88 points

Colour: golden syrup
Nose: green apples initially hinting at the DNA of the original 1970's Tormore bottling. Added layers with toffee, honey, a rich Ovaltine and Rice Krispies. Then vanilla nougat, pencil shavings and cream soda. 
Taste: a resin-like texture concentrates your attention. The lovely thickness and oozing is followed by pine cones, nuttiness with lots of vanilla and a blast of lemon. With water this Tormore becomes zesty with lots of limes and icing sugar.

Overall: a lovely example of a Tormore and I'd place this as above the aforementioned Whisky Broker. The years have suited this extremely well and it comes recommended. A great bridge between the old-style 1970's bottlings and the fresher approach seen in the late 80's and early 90's from the distillery. If you enjoyed the current cask strength Tormore from Chivas, then you'll love this.

Cadenhead's tasting notes:

Nose: Sweet red fruits, a nice mix of sweet spices including ginger and aniseed, quite well balanced

Palate: Rich soft churned toffee along with the spices from the nose including ginger, then honeycomb and ripe sweet pears

Finish: A hint of the sweet spices and some citrus notes, a clean edge then a little more spice and citrus
