Tormore is a comparatively modern distillery, having been built in 1958 and completed in 1960.
Being the first 20th century distillery to be built in the Highlands, it generated a lot of interest.
The architect of the new distillery was Sir Albert Richardson, the president of the Royal Academy and the distillery buildings are so pretty that the distillery’s appearance has been likened to a spa.
If you don’t believe me, have a look on Google streetview!
It currently has eight stills, heated by wood chips, a by-product of area’s forestry.
This is a great malt and if you feel your taste buds have got a bit tired, then try this.
They’ll feel like they’ve been on holiday!

Tormore 28 Year Old
(Master of Malt)
|Nose: Sweet, woody, spicy aromas, hint of nutmeg and sweet coffee.
Palate: Rich, syrupy fruit like long, long simmered jam mixture.
Finish: Creamy, golden sweetness with a heavenly spice hit.
Overall: This Tormore 28 Year Old has a broad range of powerful flavours which are combined beautifully. A malt like this just doesn’t come along that often. Breathtaking!
Many thanks to Master Of Malt for this sample.
