Tormore, which means Big Hill, is owned by Pernod Ricard. Their history is pretty unfortunate and they mostly sold casks to IBs before starting their own bottles to less than stellar fanfare. Yep, that's about it.

Nose: apples, purple grapes, green melons, hint of lemon zest which gets stronger with time, slightly floral like light white flowers, general sweetness. A typical fruity to floral dram.
Palate: some wood, can't taste much other than a general spicy feel. No smoke, not very fruity.
Finish: moderate, extremely dry, very spicy,
Dry glass: waxy.

Not much to say to be honest, other than it's spicier than most and on the dry side. Not bad and not good. Had this at Pavox Haeundae, Busan, South Korea.

Grade: C-
