  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Overall is balanced but lacks complexity.

    You've got lemon, herbs, some tropical fruit notes like banana and starfruit. But thereafter, it does develop further. Some white pepper, mild thme and sage is found.

    Opens up with the familiar waxiness (beeswax) and almonds of Convalmore and some honey (heather), but also a more unusual addition of citrus (bitter lemon and limonade) and some sage.
    This is much more austere than any other Convalmore I’ve had.
    A few drops of water opens it up and gives way to that earthiness and hints of dunnage warehouse which I adore about this distillery.
    The mouth has that waxy texture (which is enhanced by those few drops of water) with the familiar bitterness of almond paste, although the zestiness is more protruding than usual. With water the less dominant alcohol gives way to more bitterness (grass and tonic water). Also some pipe tobacco and a grapefruit.
    Quite long and bitter aftertaste. Some aniseed and chervil that is. Maybe a pinch of coriander.
    A very nice dram, although the weakest Convalmore I’ve had so far.
