Whisky Reviews for Convalmore 1960 GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.22 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A really nice round whisky, goddamn why did not you fill it in at least 46% or more, the door to the 93P would have been open, you idiots.
    • Nose
      Pure freshest tangerine, orange, beautiful malt integrated with green apple, melon, quite gentle but consistently pleasant notes
    • Taste
      Green apple, pear, sweet malt, honey, astringent, vanilla, dried fruit, the 40% are as effective as 46% but not more, Physalis and other bright fruits in jute sack, has almost a touch Clynelish
    • Finish
      Dry-fruity, sweet malt and apple peel, with a very round oak that certainly does not taste like 42Y, pear

  2. Master Quill scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    Maybe a bad bottle. Lots of solvents and very, very unbalanced with a strange kind of acidity, or maybe really not my type of Whisky...

  3. The Macallan scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    A wonderfull old whisky with a complex nose, from wich you can enjoy the whole evening. Because of its complexity you'll find all sorts of aroma's and flavors. This one of the very best Convalmores I ever tasted. A perfect after-dinner dram.
    • Nose
       Rich, citrus - orangepeel, intens chocolate with koffie and other sweetish delights and yet this complexity, lots goinig on in the glass (reduced: rich on cereal wich could be feints at this stage, estery notes with some aldhyde notes aswell).
    • Taste
      Soft, spices with a peppery note, beautifully balanced oak, sweet and very matured with some spicy notes (buttery soft, soft notes of spices and Whearters Originals).
    • Finish
      Long, warming, slightly dry, lively, some kardamom? but very velvety in the back (reduced: very soft and mild with some light flavors and very refined).
