Tormore is one of the most beautiful Speyside distilleries, with hedges in the shape of stills outside. We have chosen this single refill bourbon barrel from 1996 – and what a whisky. Big, rich and spicy, this is packed with notes of chocolate, Christmas spices and fresh orange.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Big-hearted, heady aromas of spiced oranges, cardamom, clove and nutmeg. Rich and dense, too, with Maya Gold chocolate and sticky toffee pudding, with some welcome freshness in the form of apple peel and citrus.

    Palate: More savoury and spicy on the palate, with cracked black pepper and toast, but this is still a robust, full-bodied dram, with big notes of orange, chocolate pudding and Christmas spices.

    Finish: Powerful, with dense spices and chocolate coating the palate.

    Comment: A great after-dinner dram, this is one to pair with a chocolate dessert or a strong coffee.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Sweet coconut, mango and toasted-malt aromas.

    The palate is peppery with banana, butterscotch and milk chocolate flavours.
