Whisky Reviews for Convalmore 1984 IM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.14 points

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Just a little sample split with a friend...

    My overall impression was that it came across a little flat and tired. Almost like you left it out overnight. That said, it was still enjoyable. Any Convalmore is a treat to try.

    A little flat. Nutty (Brazil nuts maybe), waxy, brown butter, apple, old honey, soft herbs bordering into vegetal territory.

    Dry, dusty, waxy but still somewhat flat. A little tarragon perhaps, grease, and still vegetal.

    Pleasant but a little uninspired.

  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Just super balanced and strong for 43%, reminiscent of a few refill Sherry Springbank.
    • Nose
      Beautiful aroma, really fresh, full tangerine, red apple, honey and toffee, brown sugar, light raisins, fresh as a room fragrance, lavender, roiboos tea, cinnamon and vanilla, slightly sweet malt
    • Taste
      Beautiful for 43% and distinctive, lots of fruit, the juicy tangerine, the red apple, sweet malt, sour cherry, grapefruit, lavender and rosemary, brown sugar, toffee and forest honey, cinnamon, vanilla
    • Finish
      Class finish as well, nice dry-fruity, grapefruit, lemon, light malt, tangerine, medium to long
