  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    As Mark already has stated below in 2013, a quirky candied Convalmore but pleasant enough to taste.
    • Nose
      Strange potpourri of cereal, yeast and flowery notes of nettle and geraniums at first. Spices of camphor and chamomile. Hints of wet stones and a touch of chalk. Later on some meaty notes. Distant peat and sandal wood at the background.
    • Taste
      The palate has got more sweetness of caramelized oranges and tangerines. Kumquat and overripe peaches as well. Followed with truckloads of cinnamon and hints of gingerbread. Candy-floss and caramel. Sugared almonds and walnut peel. It's all quite creamy.
    • Finish
      Medium long with nutmeg and a peppery edge. A little pine at the end.

    Floral arrangement in a bottle.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Dry musk, hay, orchids, cinnamon, coriander, young wood, orange peel, grapefruit. Warming without any spike in alcohol, I'd imagine this one to be quite harsh but it came out mild.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Goats milk? Floral and fruity but very earthy, towards the vegetative side. Hint of toasted pecan nuts, drizzle of lemon zest, and lots of straw. Feeling like a goat or cow.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Intensely dry with a medium to heavy finishing. Bitter - the Trademark of convalmore finishes, however it is not too complex. Quite simple to say the least. Heavy finish which has strong, deep, and bold flavours, that is rather monotonous..unfortunately.

  6. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Well, this is quite nice as a first encounter with this closed
    distillery. Rather strange nose, true, but on the palate, this is a great
    Scotch. Oops, I forgot to add water. Well, surely that means it did not need
    any.
    • Nose
      Sturdy nose with loads of grains and grasses. A weird touch of peat,
      parsley, mint and a broth of herbs. What is this? Must have been a sherry cask,
      most likely refill. After a few moments I also get some bitter oranges and
      caramel. Mix of nuts. Opens beautifully, though!
    • Taste
      On the palate, it is very sweet. A lot sweeter than the nose would have
      you anticipate. Orangettes, caramel, sugared almonds. Reminds me a bit of
      orange cake. Liquorice. Slowly but surely becomes bitter as tea, but never so
      that it becomes disturbing. Good balance.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and spicy, but again very sweet.
