My first Tormore! This is an older bottling from the days in which Long John Distillers still put Tormore-Glenlivet on the label, as well as the term Pure Highland Malt (which was later replaced with Pure Speyside Malt). I got the sample from a whisky buddy in Palermo, Sicily (thanks, Luca).

The nose is very light and malty. I am reminded of Frosties, the sugared breakfast cereals. A bit of white fruit (apple and pear), a little vanilla, a little caramel, a little honey. Hints of lager beer too. Better yet, iced tea. After a few moments, some more fruit emerges. Mango, maybe? But it takes effort.

The attack is watery, to say the least. And that is a shame. Again a little of everything (fruit, vanilla, honey, spices), but mostly barley sugar. Rather simple.

The finish is fairly long, completely on caramel and honey.

This is a very, very docile and easy drinking whisky. A lightweight, clearly created for the blenders. But there is nothing wrong with that, since it is flawless.

You're welcome Mark! Found the bottle in my girlfriend's house, her mother used the whisky to cook! :)
