Nose: Initially thyme and menthol with a sweet coating of icing sugar play on the nose, but with time in the glass, notes of birch, green apple and panna cotta emerge.
Palate: To begin with warm dry fruits and moderate wood spice which becomes more creamy and raspberry-milkshake-like with water.
Finish: The finish is long and creamy with notes of red berries, notably cranberry and redcurrant, and a pinch of nutmeg.
Overall: This Tormore is packed with flavours which are excellently balanced against one another and lead into a rewardingly long finish. A great expression of this under appreciated Speyside distillery.
