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:
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.
