Tasting note

  • Appearance : Or cuivré.
  • Nose : Ample, riche. L’orge maltée et les brindilles sèches précèdent des fruits venant tout juste d’être cueillis (prune, poire). La compote de pommes accentue la sensation de maturité qui règne. Avec le temps apparaissent des notes plus capiteuses de verveine. L’ensemble forme un bloc très compact.
  • Palate : Racée, vive. Toute en nuances, elle oscille entre le malt vert, le riz au lait, le basilic, les parfums de rose et la pâte d’amande. Le milieu de bouche est vanillé et boisé (chêne neuf). De plus en plus loquace, elle se déploie sur les épices (girofle, cumin, cannelle) et sur le chocolat au lait.
  • Overall : Onctueuse, gourmande. Copié-collé du nez, elle évoque un automne radieux, période de récoltes abondantes de fruits gorgés de sucres. Les confitures se préparent, leurs saveurs sont rehaussées de zestes de citron et d’une pincée de sel. Le verre vide est réglissé et praliné.
The brand

The brand

Founded in 1958 by the Long John Distillers group, Tormore was the first distillery to be built in the 20th century. Located on a curve in the road as you arrive in Grantown on Spey, it was designed by Sir Albert Richardson. The buildings are now listed. In 2005, it became the property of the Chivas Brothers group (Pernod Ricard) and contributes to the production of numerous blends, including Ballantine’s.

Merchant

This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.

The line

Located in the heart of Speyside, Gordon & MacPhail have excellent business relations with the region’s main distilleries. Each one has a specific label, originally associated with a semi-official release. Another label enables specialists such as La Maison du Whisky to bottle single casks in accordance with their specifications. Called simply Gordon & MacPhail Reserve, this range has now introduced a different colour label for each production region.
