Tormore 1984 30 YO Cadenhead Small Batch

Tormore Distillery is located in Speyside in Scotland and is one of the younger Scottish distilleries. It was founded in 1958. Currently they produce two own whiskies; the 14 YO and the 16 YO.

The independent bottler Cadenhead has released a few different whiskies from Tormore Distillery. When I attended a whisky tasting at Dr. Jekyll’s Pub in Oslo earlier this Summer, they served Tormore 1984 30 YO Cadenhead Small Batch.

The whisky was distilled in 1984, matured in bourbon casks and bottled January 2015 at 55,8 ABV. It is available in Norway at NOK 2300.

Light and fruity on the nose. Cold at first with eucalyptus, camphur and menthol. Then the nose turned warmer and more sweet with dried apricot and chocolate. A bit oaky. Oak, salt, fudge and spices on the palate. A quite rich mouth feel. Fudge and spices on the finish. Dry. This was a really nice whisky, but too dry on the palate to get a higher score from me.

My score: nose 22 / taste 22 / finish 21 / balance 21 = 86

– Tone
