3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.88 points

  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    This is a rather interesting Convalmore, not like the rest whereby the usual is floral and fruity; bright and vibrant. However, this one is medicinal and has that iodine 'like' flavor of a Laphroaig with a sweet, bitter, and salty composition.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Strong and spicy, at 50%, it punches and kicks way above its level. There's a herbal mixture of grassy herbs, can't pinpoint what they are but, one thing for sure - Cloves, star anise, thyme, and white pepper. It stings the nose, not because of the abv.
    • Taste
      93 93
      A malty sweetness that contains iodine and some heavy texture like a young Laphroaig. This is immediately followed up with a bitter note that transcends into sweetness mixed bitterness. In the end, it turns to pure salt. Salted milk chocolate, leather, apple, honeydew, and medicinal notes.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Still very salty and has a wee bit of ashy like note. Salted pepper goodness that continues on and on. It's rather short to end, after a long start, salted peanuts with a tinge of pepper on lime.
