Tormore Distillery is rather stunning. Strong, bold and architecturally pleasing Tormore is a wee gem in the Speyside region. A distillery that should garner more visitors both physically and (spirit)ually. Following on from our final exclusive of 2018, our Tormore 30 year old First Editions cask #15453, we are delighted to bring the opportunity for you to explore this distillery again.
Introducing, with the help of our chums at Hunter Laing & Co, our exclusive Tormore 30 Year Old 1988 First Editions #16984.
We loved our last iteration of this whisky. And you guys did too. So we thought it was a wise decision to look at this distillery again. And after a taste of this cask, there was no reason to doubt. This is a perfect summer dram. However, be warned not only is it limited to a single cask bottling, the yield was low. Just 99 bottles. Angels? Casks? Low yields just happen sometimes.
Distilled in 1988 this cask was bottled in in 2019 for Hunter Laing & Co. First Editions label, exclusively for us at TheWhiskyBarrel.com. Matured in a refill hogshead #16984 and with an ABV of 44.7%. I think we need to ask the angels some questions…
Plenty of Tormore character in here. Fruits are abundant in this one. Along with a pleasant additional sweetness of caramel sauce, candied orange and vanilla. But there is a distinct and supporting role of maltiness, hints of nuts and a smallest touch of spice.
This is a lovely dram. A easy, go-to summer’s day dram. But as is always the way with single cask independent bottlings, it also offers something a wee bit different, unique and worthwhile exploring.
