Master of Malt Tormore 28 yo single cask

tormoreTormore is a relatively young distillery (only founded in the 1950’s)

and is another of those distilleries you rarely see any bottling of (owned by Chivas Bros.). But guess what, the chaps at MoM have scored a 28 year old cask, and they were kind enough to share a sample. So here goes, Tormore tasting note #1 on the blog:

Tormore 28 Year Old (Master of Malt) , 60.20% , £99.95

Nose: A rather sweet dough kind of nose here. Lots of sugar and vanilla and quite a few woody notes. Like polished oak and rum drenched wood casks. Not bad.

Palate: After the alcohol bite you get on initial sip ,some nice flavours come into mind : apples, lovely wood and polished oak with a peppery zing. With water getting more fruity. With hints of berries.

Finish : Pepper  and blackberry Ice cream.

A rather nice dram indeed, at 28 years of age, it doesn’t display a lot of wood influence. A nice example from this often overlooked distillery. Not very cheap, when it comes to VFM , and not as brilliant as the Deanston. but worth a try. One very unusual thing is the ABV we have here. after 28 years over 60%. that is very interesting.

Score: 84/100
