  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A different Convalmore to WB148920 for sure; the colour is the tell tale sign. Although both has the same abv, age, year of distillation and bottling date, I can confirm that they are not the same liquid. And no, the clear green CA bottle is not a different bottling of this for the US market. They are both distant oddballs.
    • Nose
      90 90
      On the nose, the first impression gives a note of honey, papaya, and unmistakably grapefruit. Some hints of peppermint and pumpkin spice linger in the background. Chickpeas, tofu skin, brown sugar, pineapple, arrowroot crackers and grapevine thereafter. Linseed oil, moss, hay, oatmeal, eucalyptus and figs show up.
    • Taste
      92 92
      The palate expresses itself with cardamom, fennel seeds, cilantro, lemon, madeleine, brioche buns with butter and cranberry jam, mango, pomegranate, raw plantain and even Korean pear.

      There are more spices like cloves, mandarin peel skin, sesame seed oil, and nutmeg powder.

      Do not be afraid of the 64.4% abv; it doesn't bite. And yes, I agree with Mark that this doesn't need water.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long and spicy with a hint of peated smoke, salty to the core and a minimal signature Convalmore bitterness to boot. It's a tad grassy but comes back to chamomile and/or Chinese white tea.

      ALL in all, its a herbal and fruity convalmore. Best of the 1977 and partly 1978 distillate.

    After dinner?
    • Nose
      Oily. Passion fruit. Iron-Ish, but sweet.
    • Taste
      Gritty. Little bit dry. Sherbet. Peppery. Clinging syrupiness.
    • Finish
      Dry on the tongue. Long, big, rummy, warming syrupiness.

    Masterful and very quaffable Convalmore with a nose to die for. Wow!
    Thanks, Teun.
    • Nose
      Boy, what a creamy nose. It is all about beeswax and paraffin.
      Underneath a whole range of yellow fruit. Oranges, apricots, peach, maybe even
      some pineapple on syrup. Nuts. Turn that into praliné. Touch of leather. Crust
      of freshly backed white bread, no kidding! But wait! It is not over yet. Humus
      and wet leaves, green twigs and moss emerge as well. A walk in the forrest
      after a heavy rain. Nice, very nice! Lastly there is a delicate smokiness. This
      is a grand nose!
    • Taste
      Wow, this does not need water, who would have though? Very creamy on the
      palate with loads of honey, citrus, mango, lemon grass and a touch of oak. That
      takes care of a smokiness that offers true character to this Convalmore.
      Spices: pepper, salt and even a touch of curry.
    • Finish
      In the long and spicy finish, I get a lot of liquorice, bitter oranges
      and almonds.
