Little duos, right now two particular Tormore

Elixir Distillers’ Tormore Distillery! We simply cannot wait… However within the meantime…


Tormore 27 yo 1995/2022 (48.3%, WhiskySponge, for LMDW, Collection Antipode, refill hogshead, 136 bottles)

Tormore 27 yo 1995/2022 (48.3%, WhiskySponge, for LMDW, Assortment Antipode, refill hogshead, 136 bottles) Four stars and a half

On the label, an anthropomorphic sponge mendacity on the bottom whereas dreaming of flowers. An excessive amount of Tormore, most likely, except that may have been ‘one thing else’. Color: gold. Nostril: flowers maybe (mullein? Honeysuckle? Freesia? Orange blossom?), most likely honeys, and fruits for positive. Pink bananas, juicy sultanas, prickly pears, rambutans, plums, melons massive time, papayas… I am additionally discovering just a few droplets of pinot gris. Alsatian pinot gris, naturally. Mouth: feels stronger than 48.3, with baggage of orchard fruits and touches of caramel and stout. I am positive it will take water with ease and pleasure…  With water: and it does. Moist marzipan (with kirschwasser, in fact) plus melons ala Bruichladdich and peaches ala Ardmore. Fantastic ‘western’ fruitiness. Zwetschke. End: medium, fruity and doughy. Brioche filled with candied fruits. Feedback: bordering stardom, an ideal bridge between fruits and doughs. Who stated ‘so, panettone?’

SGP:641 – 89 factors.

Tormore 29 yo 1993/2022 (54.5%, Gordon & MacPhail, Connoisseurs Choice, first fill sherry butt, cask #5053, 554 bottles)

It is to be remembered that G&M are filling their very own casks. Color: full gold. Nostril: far more sherry right here, clearly, so extra roasted nuts, walnuts, espresso, maybe a little bit gunpowder too, struck matches, bitter oranges… With water: soy sauce, recreation, leather-based, burnt caramel, umami sauce (litres of that), soot… Mouth (neat): heavy flinty sherry, orange zests, salted liquorice, nearly some tar, leather-based, some mustard sauce, barely overly infused tea, dry Madeira, bits of tobacco… It needs to be stated that it isn’t simple to come back after the very pure WhiskySponge with this sort of leafy and faintly s******y sherry. With water: on the frontiers. End: lengthy and intensely umami-y, however with a sweeter aftertaste on candied grapefruits. Feedback: some components are sensible, others are maybe tougher. A mode that is slowly parting in most components of the whisky world (simply not in Mittelleuropa, ha!)

SGP:472 – 85 factors.
