Tormore was the first distillery to be opened in Speyside in the twentieth century with production starting in 1960. If someone was going to give out an award for the prettiest distillery outright, the chances are it would go to Tormore with its splendid architectural features, including a belfry, fountain, curling lake and musical clock which plays four Scottish songs every fifteen minutes. How odd, then, that this most beautiful of distilleries doesn’t play the tourist game. It has no visitor centre and there are no tours for the public, although industry tours can be arranged.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Crisp, clean and zesty. Hint of green apples and sour fruits.
Palate: Pleasant, light and fresh with more green fruit. Slightly vegetal, with an increasing oakiness to the finish.
Retails for around £40-45
