North Star Spirits Tormore Tasting Notes

Posted: January 10, 2017 in Scotch Whisky H-Z, Tormore

North Star Spirits Tormore 1988 (27 year old) 51.5%

Bourbon Hogshead/ Madeira

Dist: 1988 Btl: 2016/ Tasted: Nov 2016

Deep and heavier on the Madiera notes than the Arran. Slightly herbal with hints of mature, baked fruit and drier, nuttier Madeira. It becomes very herbal and nutty with time and hints of dunnage and cayenne pepper appear.

The palate is subtle and deep with again the mellow, dry nutty Madeira taking centre stage. Lightly chocolaty with crisp, mineral notes and oily apricot and Satsuma on the middle. Long and remaining biscuity with a pleasant dry, toasted toffee finish. Although pleasant the Madeira finish is a little too heavy.
