    apple, pear, herbs, sugar barley, toffee, nuts to start with but also some bitter herbs and oak, not bad

  3. MaltMartin scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Always nice to taste old Convalmore these days. I have a sweet spot for this long-gone distillery. Not the best expression ever made, but still very enjoyable.
    • Nose
      Lots of nuttiness for a start; roasted chestnuts, walnut cake, pecan nuts, you name it. After a while followed by hints of gingerbread and cinnamon. Some cereal and barley sugar as well. Spices of camphor and chamomile. Later on, a drizzle of lemon zest and some bitter oranges.
    • Taste
      Now more on 'fattish' sweetness of caramelized apples and sticky toffee pudding. Lots of butterscotch and toffee. Candy-floss and caramel. Rum raisins. Notes of sweet calvados and milk chocolate in the background. It's all quite big wood influenced with a sweet tang.
    • Finish
      Medium long with quite some sandalwood oak. Touch of nutmeg and clove. Liquorice in the end.

  5. Mr.Sandwich did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Whiskyfun Notes:

    Colour: straw (much paler than the 15yo). Nose: much sharper and more austere than its younger brother and very grassy. Hints of paraffin. Also a nice sourness from the cask, hints of yoghurt, green tea, crushed leaves and walnut skin… Not very sexy but not flawed either, and rather elegant.

    Mouth: that ‘old style’ is here again, with more waxiness this time, smoked tea, hints of peat, mint-flavoured nougat like they sometimes make in Montélimar, France. Goes on with quite some salt, candied oranges, pepper, then some rather bold notes of apples, tea, a little cinnamon. Very very good again and much more demonstrative than on the nose.

    Finish: long, salty, peppery, candied and lemony, with a balance that’s still quite perfect. Another very good Convalmore by Dun Bheagan / Ian McLeod, too bad the nose was a tad too calm. Funny that we had quite some excellent Convalmores recently (the 28 yo OB is great) - a late comeback? 87 points.
