Single Malts of Scotland Tormore 1988. Image courtesy Speciality Drinks Ltd.This single cask Tormore was bottled after 28 years, and the nose has notes of honey, black tea, a hint of lemon zest, muted spices, and dried fruits. The taste is spicy and intense, with black pepper and cinnamon notes dominating while honey, lemon zest, vanilla, and black tea add balance and complexity in the background. The finish is long with spicy notes that seem to last forever, along with hints of honey and lemon zest. (August, 2017)
