Archive TORMORE 1997 G&M


Single Malt, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 19618

After the remarkable, classic Tormore 1982 in our 2012 Collection, matured in sherry barrels, you can now try a completely different Tormore, much fruitier and more spring-like, which also resembles at times a single pot still whiskey from Ireland. The two versions do, howe - ver, have one thing in common, they both come from the same warehouse, owned by the famous independent Scot - tish bottler: Gordon & MacPhail.

Single Cask #6418 - Refill Bourbon Barrel Limited edition of 217 bottles LMDW world exclusive Profile: fruity, lively and elegant. Hugely exotic (mango, pineapple, etc.).

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : deep gold
  • Nose : lively, elegant. Abundant amounts of exotic fruit can be detected immediately, along with notes of Bourbon vanilla, citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit) and wax. Its richness and complexity gives an almost bottomless depth to the initial nose. Spices (cloves, nutmeg), dry walnut, concentrate of iris and a pinch of salt give tremendous length to this moment of pure olfactory pleasure.
  • Palate : rich, distinguished. This too has plenty of exoticism (pineapple, mango, etc.) and the same passion as the nose. With noble spices (curry, cardamom), the mid-palate comes straight from the Orient. Particularly invigorating, the finish is elegantly herbaceous and sharp (lime). Lingers with notes of salted butter caramel.
  • Overall : long, concentrated. Forged in the strongest of steel, its minerality is outstanding (schist, sandstone). It then slowly cools down with deliciously sweet fruit juices (peach, pear, persimmon). The retro-olfaction wavers between cut hay, bay leaf and vanilla. The empty glass is gorgeously exotic and spicy. Superb from start to finish.
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.


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

A new Gordon & MacPhail range, Exclusive was created to bring together a small number of blends, bottled without dilution from single casks, and intended to be sold exclusively through Gordon & MacPhail’s shop in Elgin. La Maison du Whisky was lucky enough to have access to some of these rare, highly-prized bottlings, including the very first release of a 1984 Caol Ila to available outside of Scotland.
