Whisky Reviews for Convalmore 1981 vW

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.25 points

  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Interesting to taste a very old bottling by van Wees. Especially one of a closed distillery. I’ve tasted a Convalmore once before, a 30yo by Dun Bheagan, and that did not disapoint at all.
    • Nose
      Great old style nose. Sweet & dry & chalky. Ripe tropical fruits, fresh apples and a hint of lime. Very well balanced and friendly. Mild (dry) wood influences and a hint of dried grass.
    • Taste
      Oily on arrival, sweet and a tad sour after that. Very gentle. The 43% gives it quite a fragile body but also makes it very sophisticated and gives it a very pleasant mouthfeel. Dry wood influences as well as dried spices such as licorice, a hint of macaroons and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      It is a medium length finish in which I find a lot of dried influences take the lead. Not completely my cup of tea but also not bad.
