Convalmore 1975/2004 (49.3%, Scott's Selection) Four stars and a half Most probably a sister cask, bottled a little earlier, and perhaps an even sharper Convalmore, let’s see… Colour: straw. Nose: my, this baby makes the previous one round and soft by comparison. Almost pure lemon juice, with a little fresh mint and the faintest iodine thrown in for good measure. A little chalk as well, and perhaps hints of dill, or even rubbed lovage. Mouth: delicious! This is almost old Chartreuse, mind you, minus the sweetness. Aniseed, spearmint, liquorice, verbena, lemon zests… All that is very fresh, very herbal, and I have to say I’m rather a fan of this long forgotten style. Finish: wonderful chalky and Chartreuse-y profile, with more lemon again in the aftertaste. Comments: these Convalmores were all superbly grassy and herbal. I cannot think of any current distillery that’s still making this style of malt whisky. SGP:361 - 89 points.
- Herbal and fruity aroma, mint, floral honey, ripe melon, lime, oak and pear. Marzipan sweet taste, mint, anise, mango, coconut, vanilla, heather honey, toffee and peat. Long, spicy, sweet and malty end.
- a very beautiful convalmore. warm and complex.to taste with friends, without saying a word and closing their eyes.
beautiful citrus (mandarins) grilled coffee, flowers (peonies). clean, very well balanced with a lot of freshness like a tingling north wind.
the roasted coffee constantly overhangs notes of milk chocolate and lemongrass. strange but beautiful sensation that mixes acidity and sweet (nut bread) with a beautiful bitterness that enhances the whole very complex and relatively oily
long, chocolatey finish with lingering aromas of toasted coffee
