Whisky Reviews for Tormore 1992 WhB

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.40 points

  1. Kaleva scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Whisky, which doesn’t meet the expectations. It starts with a beautiful very light and flowery nose but disappoints on the palate stage: the taste is very oaky with a lot of harsh tannins (especially before dilution). Without those it’s really pleasant but we have what we have and I’m not a big fan of excess oak. Disappointment for this much aged whisky.
    • Nose
      Fresh and light, earthy tones, fruity with pear candy drops, vanilla, sweet grapefruit peel, notes of acacia honey, damp wood, with water gets grassy and opens white flowers tones
    • Taste
      Sweet, oaky (strong tannins), white pepper, wheat cereals, butter biscuits, nutmeg, lemon peel
    • Finish
      Medium-long, dry, harsh, apple seeds and raw almonds

    Tasted it at the 2nd Whiskybase Gathering in Rotterdam, November 2017.

    hmmm! this is quite a raw / rough tasty dram. 

    quite spicy with black pepper, sweets from the bourbon barrel with strawberry and lemon, and a nice creamy mouthfeel.

    N: 2,4,6-trichloroanisole [or TCA for short], is otherwise known as [malty] cardboard. This doesn’t sound like a great start but I think this is decent enough whisky. Not sure any distillery would aim for cardboard as a character note, but for me it’s not automatically a negative by default, and cardboard evokes nostalgia in me which helps the cause. As a child I would cardboard boxes into arcade games, pinball machines, coconut shy’s, shop tills and the like. Later in life, cardboard has become synonymous with anticipated whisky deliveries. On the other hand, cardboard in whisky can suggest the spirit has become stale, part oxidised or corked. Further reading: https://scotchwhisky.com/magazine/ask-the-professor/10349/is-there-such-a-thing-as-corked-whisky/. Now where was I?
    Furthermore, we’ve bread & butter pudding, butter biscuits/milk biscuits, warm & flaking/peeling thick [white] emulsion and milky-chalk. That’s a fair picture.T: Egg white=takeaway cardboard [curry>pizza container/box], leading to an edgy middle - though water helps relax it. Now we’ve more of those butter biscuits with a little grated white cabbage. Becomes decidedly waxy/milky/malty on the turn.
    F: Cardboard-y icing sugar with a well tempered vegetal/mineral edginess. Concludes with an aniseed & rocket buckwheat arancini - another one for the cookbook.
    C: TCA/no TCA, this a decent single cask Tormore. [Old] Deanston-like in someways.
    Scores a B-
