Tormore, the first distillery to appear in the 20th century (1958), increased its number of stills from four to eight in 1972. It became a listed building in 1986 and produces a single malt that is highly-prized by master blenders. Overflowing with exoticism and a very pure expression, this single malt bottled by Gordon & MacPhail for La Maison du Whisky offers up a highly spirited aromatic and gustatory symphony; each note in turn is played to perfection in a truly inspired solo. This even surpasses the magnificent Tormore 1997 from our 2016 Collection – a true feat!

Profile: fresh and concentrated, the nose reveals notes of ripe and exotic fruit, still-damp malted barley, toasted walnuts, cocoa beans, and more. The very extrovert palate transcends the nose, emphasising its unbridled exoticism (passion fruit, lychee, guava). It becomes increasingly spicy with notes of noble wood. The finish is remarkably rich and voluptuous.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : deep golden yellow.
  • Nose : fresh, subtle. The initial nose is deliciously concentrated. One by one, ripe fruit (peach, apricot, pear), exotic fruit (pineapple, banana), grains of rice, still damp malted barley, roasted walnuts, cocoa beans, spices and tiger balm lift the aromatic palette, making it richer, firmer and stronger. Outstanding.
  • Palate : lively, demonstrative. The opening of the palate transcends the nose. Fully open, the gustatory palette highlights a wildly exotic fruitiness (passion fruit, lychee, guava). A very delicate note of chocolate gently coats the taste buds on the mid-palate. Powdery, it develops into a spicier (pink peppercorn) and delicately woody register (sandalwood). Highly spirited, the finish reverts back to powerful notes of exotic fruit.
  • Overall : long, voluptuous. The Belle-Hélène poached pear served up is absolutely delicious. Generous, it then becomes increasingly vanilla-flavoured and creamy. Emphasising its generous nature, the retro-nasal olfaction is marked by notes of salted butter caramel and biscuit. Sparkling with freshness, the empty glass reflects the strength and firmness of the initial nose.
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.
