  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    pleasant dram.
    also #550!
    • Nose
      Quite a timid nose, with pineapple, vanilla custard, sugared biscuits, white chocolate and a bit of dust
    • Taste
      The taste has quite more power compared to the nose. Notes of honey, citrus and a dash of black pepper.
    • Finish
      The finish is a bit feisty, with some red chili pepper burn combined with apple muffin, moderately long

    • Nose
      Fruity, fresh and sweet. Citrus, apples, honey, vanilla, banana. Also smell of an autumn forest, and applesauce now too. Later also white chocolate.
    • Taste
      Sweet and fruity, sour undertones, full taste. Honey, vanilla and peach.
    • Finish
      Creamy, sweet, very light stimulus on the tongue. Honey, wood tones. Fairly long. Heating. And after a while, a taste of cigar tobacco remains!

  6. markjedi1 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Well, I could have done a lot worse in my tenth encounter with Tormore.
    • Nose
      Succulent and honeysweet nose on toffee, vanilla and white orchard fruit. Sirop de Liège. Hint of white chocolate. Apple sauce. Hint of potato peels and even some autumn leafs. I quite like it.
    • Taste
      It is less sweet on the palate, but rather spicy and green, if you know what I mean. All kinds of garden herbs, but also pepper from the mill and ginger before the apples cick in. I get some pineapple and grapefruit as well. Litchi wine, like I sometimes order in a Chinese restaurant. Not unpleasant.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and remains sweet with a peppery bit at the death.

  7. rb854 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    I like this, fresh and fruity with a spicy note
    • Nose
      Sweet, vanilla, coconut, peach, wood, nutmeg, cinnamon and some oranges
    • Taste
      A little pepper, vanilla, sweet, peach, candy, a bit drying
    • Finish
      Medium length, sweet, vanilla, peach, again the candy, grapefruit, some coconut, spices and nuts

  8. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Marzipan, vanilla, apple, lime, coconut, grain cookie and a fishy touch.
    • Taste
      More salty. Vanilla, shortbread and a lime candy sweetness.
    • Finish
      That sweetness continues, but the saltiness takes over. Some nuts as well.

  9. Reneetje1978 scored this whisky 87 points Newbie

    • Nose
      vanilla, pineapple and a slight hint of apricot
    • Taste

    • Finish
      nice smooth finish from the bourbon cask.
