Wormit sits on the Fife side of the River Tay overlooking Dundee City.
Back in 1879 the recently built Tay Rail Bridge collapsed into the river taking a train and all the people inside with it.
A new memorial to the disaster sits on the peaceful foreshore with fine views of the current bridge beyond.
Wormit also has a fine restaurant in The View – the purpose of my visit – and a few choice whiskies to sample.
I chose Tormore 12 Year Old.
My knowledge of this whisky was scant – but on tasting – it told me all I needed to know.
The nose is soft & subtle.
The palate started off weak & watery – bland & inoffensive – devoid of any strong flavours or character.
There was a suggestion of mild heat on the pleasant easy finish.
It’s how I experience many a malt from Speyside.
Soft, subtle, easy & approachable.
Ultimately dull to my tastes.
Unlike the rich flavoursome food served up by The View.
I’d particularly recommend the Haggis Fritters myself.
