A tropical, fruity 13-year-old Tormore matured in ex-bourbon casks and released by independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail.
Built in 1958, Tormore is a â€˜modernâ€™ distillery by Scotch whisky standards. Owned by Chivas Brothers/Pernod Ricard, the vast majority of its output is used for blends but the few single malts we get access to are highly rewarding.
A remarkable looking distillery, the spirit is fruity and clean â€“ unpeated, traditional pot still shapes and a clean wash.
Nose: Fruity and lively: abundant tropical fruit notes ofÂ pineapple,Â grapefruit,Â coconut, and freshly squeezedÂ limeÂ weave with hints of freshly cutÂ grassÂ andÂ toasted malt.
Taste: Creamy, the sweetness of theÂ vanilla, velvetyÂ milk chocolate, andÂ baked appleÂ are perfectly balanced by zestyÂ citrus peel. Undertones of plumpÂ apricotÂ and juicyÂ mangoÂ develop.
Finish: Delightfully delicate with gentle lingeringÂ herbalÂ tones finishing with nuances ofÂ charred oak.
This expression is part of Gordon & MacPhailâ€™s Discovery series, which showcases classic whisky styles under the sherry cask, bourbon cask and smoky banners. Gordon & MacPhail is one of Scotlandâ€™s oldest and most respected independent bottlers and have one of the broadest and deepest collections of maturing Scotch whisky.
