    A virgin rate on here, hopefully this note will be of some use to someone, you never know?
    Well tasting Convalmore is always a treat and I really wanted to like this but unfortunately while being ok, the bitter notes really spoiled things as the spirit was quite light more like a Lowlander in style.
    • Nose
      85 85
      The nose is distant to say the least, not very expressive but then some polish notes emerge, white wine, hint of lemon and some cereal notes.
      Smells a little like Weetabix but lighter so to summarise it is white fruits mixed with cereals.
    • Taste
      75 75
      The palate is quite sticky with an initial burst of white fruit but then a bitter note invades and washes over your tongue so it is a not a great start.
      The 2nd mouthful is a slight improvement and for only 46% abv there is some power on show and that comes from some peat that has entered proceedings mixing with the fizzy lemon note but the lemon is faint.
      The bitter note persists and hampers my enjoyment somewhat and then bang!
      If you leave it in your mouth the peat grows massively. quite similar to some younger bourbon cask Brora I have had, this improves things but again the bitterness returns.
    • Finish
      82 82
      The finish is quite long but the woody butter note is what grabs your attention, shame,
