Whisky Reviews for Tormore 2002 GM

  1. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A finish in the wine barrel, which does not kill the whisky, but complements the distillery style fruity. Succeeded.
    • Nose
      Sweet, almost overripe berries settle in the nose. Chewing gum with forest berry aroma. Some spiciness from the nutmeg, but only very discreet. Overall, a rather restrained nose.
    • Taste
      In the beginning pleasant on the tongue, with a jam of raspberries and blackberries. Slightly sour at the beginning, but this impression disappears quickly. Milk chocolate and toffee sweets, with the time oak aroma, it is dry.
    • Finish
      In the medium-long finish predominate chocolate and nutty notes and some sawdust. The berry fruits have already said goodbye some time ago.

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      Lots of sweet, red fruits caress my nasal tip. Ripe strawberries are clearly identifiable and form the summery-fruity foundation. Redcurrants and green apples provide a refreshing, slightly acidic impact. Floral hints, raspberries, cherries, subtle notes of honey and a touch of oak spice join in the mix. The alcohol content of 45% is very well integrated.
    • Taste
      The mouthfeel is very full-bodied, soft and oily. A very slight tingling at the tip of the tongue I perceive. The fruity-sweet impression of Nosing continues seamlessly in terms of taste. The sweet, red fruits are almost omnipresent at the beginning. Plenty of strawberries, raspberries, a few redcurrants and juicy cherries dominate the flavor base. A "red wine impression" arises. Delicate vanilla notes, chocolate and mild oak notes crystallize a little more clearly on the second sip. The taste of the whisky is perfect for summer. Very harmonious and balanced, without overstraining with a multitude of facets.
    • Finish
      Medium. Also on the home straight dominate the red fruits, which remain pleasantly sweet. Associations of a fruity red wine, I register here again. Spicy oak notes are now more noticeable, but rather stay pleasant in the background. The whisky leaves a slight dryness on the palate.

    This bottling is in the best sense of the word a summer whisky and I feel as if most of my impressions are dominated by red wine, as I can not discover a distillery character. But maybe the goalie is so restrained that a finish will always ruin him. Will certainly try again, to try a gate without finish to get another impression. This tasted malt was ultimately nice in the best sense, but little complex or demanding. Average.
    • Nose
      Very soft and shy presents the Tormore and I have to work properly with the nose to determine its odor profile. Strawberries and wildflowers first appear, followed by vanilla and caramel. Finally, give a very mild coffee and something licorice-like; Licorice, maybe. Pleasant nose, even if I had to tickle this out hard first.
    • Taste
      As far as a whisky that is possible, this puts almost tender on the tongue, nestles fluffy to the palate and tries to camouflage first as a jam with whisky flavor. Strawberry is still present, cherry is added vigorously and vanilla plays in. With a slight tingle on the tongue, the alcohol then suddenly makes itself felt and turns the malt into a kind of Kir Royal. Very tasty, supple and dangerous.
    • Finish
      In the end, oak still presents itself, which melts with a cherry pudding and chocolate to a rather medium-length, summery sweet finish. Harmonious ending.

    Sweet and many dark fruits. Blind I would have typed an Olorso Sherry, as for me the nuts dominate.
