If you’re planning a trip up to Scotland to look at all the picturesque distilleries, here’s a hot tip - take a look at Tormore. Beautiful distillery, surrounded by a thick pine forest and it overlooks the River Spey. So beautiful that you might even think we’d put a picture of it on the label of our Tormore, just to show off how pretty it is. Nope. We put a whacking great hill on it instead. It’s got a bird and a plane, too.
Nose: Quite shy initially, eventually baked apples, meadow grasses and hay. Vanilla creams follow, with just a pinch of salt. Very elegant.
Palate: Sweet, creamy and then a little zesty. Apple peels and hints of walnuts too while pink grapefruit zest balances the sweetness
Finish: Fairly long with a zesty tartness that lingers
