Tasting notes: Tormore 10 year old

Tormore 10

Tormore wasn’t on my radar for quite some time, until I met a huge Tormore fan (you might know him as Whisky Rover) at¬†the Spirit of Speyside festival last year. He gave me a sample of the 16 year old Tormore, which¬†was my first ever Tormore! It didn’t convince me yet, but¬†not long after I managed to buy an independent release of Tormore (released by the Casqueteers) which has aroused¬†my¬†interest in this brand. Now I had the chance to try the Tormore 10 year old official release. It¬†was bottled in the 70’s and was the second release of this distillery.¬†You can obviously guess from whom I received this sample. ūüėČ His findings can be read here.

This 10 year old Tormore is bottled at 43% ABV. (Bottling series: Pure Highland Malt).

Tormore 10 year old tasting notes:

Nose: Dried fruit, raisins and a lovely scent of Turkish delight. Figs. A hint of tobacco, quite enjoyable. Orangepeels in the background. Then ginger and cinnamon. Cloves too. This is sooooo good!

Taste:¬†It’s starts very¬†fruity, but also leather and tobacco. Red fruit, with a hint of ¬†very sweet strawberries. Oranges and a some¬†dried fruits too. More cinnamon and some cloves¬†in the background. A little bit watery where it’s not really living up the the nose.

Finish: The finish is mid-long and mouth watering. Slightly peppery.

A beautiful old style whisky, which I enjoyed very much. The taste is a little bit watery and would have done better with a higher ABV. But the nose is just perfect! Delicious!

Many thanks to Jason for the more than generous sample of this Tormore 10 and the photograph.
