Tormore 1984/2005 20yo Cadenhead Authentic Collection 59.4%

Quick one, my how time flies when your hands are full.

It is difficult to find a picture of this bottle, despite being bottled only all of 10 years past, but it should look like this:

Nose Nose: The bourbon is strong in this one, but not a sweet woody bourbon, instead it’s rather resinous, burning butterscotch, agricole, leaf sap. Undercurrent of fruit. Rather closed at 59.4%, adding water is a must. Water softens everything, adds boiled barley and an indistinct soft fruit.

Taste Palate: Powerful and syrupy, coconut,  more resin, drying, smoking sugar. With water: Zestier, easier and livelier but rather bland but for the active bourbon wood. Might as well be grain whisky.

Finish Finish: Medium, spicy prickle, sweet plus a mild off note too.

Ehm, 59.4% after 20 years, this was probably vodka filled at 69%.
