Whisky Reviews for Tormore 1995 Ch7

9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.56 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Strange silence, something like Glen Scotia - the elusive notes of rot and smoked meat on the brink of extinction; plus notes of boiled meat, all this is slightly discouraging. On the other hand, the lute is alive, interesting, very tidy, depth and saturation at the proper level; in general, I would not buy the whole bottle, but in the form of a sample it will not disappoint you.
    • Nose
      Restrained, raw wood, stain, vegetable notes - cabbage, zucchini, boiled radish; some greens, carpentry and lacquer motifs.
    • Taste
      Thick, sour-sweet, peppery, jerky, dried fruits, lacquer notes, boiled meat, cold meat.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, creamy notes, dried fruits - dried apricots, raisins; a little honey, spicy oak, lemon peel, boiled meat.

    Mon Chérie on Steroïds

    Chapter 7? That is a Swiss bottler run by Selim Evin. Since last year, he bottles single casks. Like this Tormore 1995 for example. It is only my 8th Tormore so far. So I can hardly claim to be experienced with this brand. But I do know that – bar one exception – I quite fancy this malt.

    Coffee and nuts, that is the essence of this nose. With a hint of rust. But also quite floral, almost perfumy. Underneath lingers a nice marmalade of apples and pears with some vanilla. Let us return to the nuts. I get almost (marzipan) as well as pecan nuts and even some roasted peanuts. A single dried apricot and a hint of oak. This is quite pleasant.

    The arrival is creamy and mouth coating, but at the same time very piquant and floral. It is almost rose water, but on steroids. Let me quickly add some water. More fruit now. Think apples, pears and cherries. A bit like the Mon Chérie candy, but better (doh). Almonds are the leading nuts. Cinnamon and a hint of cloves.

    Another dose of fruit emerges in the medium long finish, with cinnamon and barley sugar at the death.

    Lovely clean, sweet Tormore. Summer dram. Thank for the sample, Jurgen!
