In this whisky I can imagine why Tormore is so well fit as an blendfiller. It’s breathing ’middle of the road’ on this barely matured version. Allthough I have tasted some great Tormore so it definitely can work as a single malt. But it is in need of more active casks I guess.
This one needs quite some time in the glass. At first there is a burst of light flavors and grassy notes. Quite a lot of Ginger, but also a burst of hay and grainy, grassy notes. This one comes from an older less active hogshead. With time, more fruitiness such as apples get some space.
Again a lot of spirit flavor is still intact. It’s light and fresh. It lacks own identity.
Rather short finish. It all is a little onesided. Ginger, hay, vanilla.
