    Uugh what is this, reminds me of new make as it is full of vanilla and some banana, really sweet, syrupy and sickly.
    It is drinkable but it is more like a dessert than a whisky.
    Not for me, not a very active cask either, the high score on here is flattering to say the least?

    Colour: just pure gold

    Nose: lovely fruity arrival, its a classic Tormore entry full of poise and elegance. Initially its ripe fruits with apples, pears and peaches, but then after time in the glass it goes all dried fruit thereby adding more depth. A slight chalky lime element, red berries and sweet cinnamon. Hints of chocolate and with water more of a buttery, oily quality followed by grilled pineapple.

    Taste: A caramel presence but cutting through it is candy floss. There's also that classic sweet and sour interplay that takes me back to the early Tormore bottlings. Harmony between the spirit and the cask is evident here. It's a wonderful summer dram that doesn't need to showboat or tart itself up with marketing. I find water should be used very sparingly as there's a tautness to this whisky that should be respected. Water delivered more cream a touch of peppermint.

    Overall: another Tormore winner and just underlines what this distillery can produce. Sadly its only cultivated successfully by the independent sector, as Chivas just don't seem able to capture the essence of what makes Tormore great.

    Best Tormore, I tasted so far. The 95er of teh Whisky chamber is very good, too, but this one is more complex and I like the sweet roasted nuts in the nose especially. Thanks to Tomer
    • Nose
      The best about this dram is the nose. Honey roasted Peanuts, but more Hazelnut then peanuts, A little touch of mint and a good fruity note on mainly sweet pears.
    • Taste
      Very sweet and fruity, and again a herbel note in direction of Camphor this time. A little bit of grapefruit.
    • Finish
      Not the longest finish, but it's Okay. Caramel nuts and pears again.
