Whisky reviews for Convalmore 1977 CA

One user has left a review for this whisky. Average rating is 88.75 points.

  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very fiery, tried this from a fresh bottle the first time. Then left the bottle uncorked to try another pour the very next day.

    Lemon, pineapple, ginger, white pepper, paprika, pecan nuts, celery, wheatgrass, papaya skins, garlic skin, French bean, vanilla extract.

    Not much goes on after that; it's quite a single profiled Convalmore. I cannot provide more as the bottle did not go lower than the shoulder during my time.

    Drank in a (1) blender glass over 4 hours until it turns cloudy and musky. I also had a pour inside a (2) Glencairn and (3) in a Luigi bormioli glass. Very minute differences in profile as the high alcohol meant that there wasn't much of a cask influence. The distillate was very strong, giving off a vegetative feel alongside the trademark bitterness to the end. Until I open my bottle, these notes will stand before I can give a more balanced review from an oxidised bottle.
