Official bottlings of Tormore can be hard to find, but this independent bottling from Master of Malt’s “That Boutique-y Whisky Company” is a good substitute. The nose has notes of honey, toffee, ginger snaps, vanilla wafers, and a touch of malt. The taste is thin at first, but builds up strongly with black pepper that fades to reveal honey, toffee, red apples, vanilla, and a hint of ginger. The finish is dry with a lingering spiciness.
