  1. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Colour: gold
    Nose: sweet, light, fresh, sweet fruits, croissant, berries, vanilla, orange zest, caramelised apples.
    Mouth: sweet, sweet fruits, oak, croissant, anise.
    Finish: very long, spices, muffins, biscuits, oak, vanilla, anise, grass.
    Convalmore 32YO is a very good balanced whisky. In spite of long maturation it keeps fresh and light notes, oak cask worked very gently only removed bad components without adding oak in taste. This whisky will be good for long tasting without ruffle or excitement. It’s for real whisky lovers.

    N: Oily barley with lemon citrus, but this isn't modern, straight-ahead Speysider whisky - this is beautiful old juice. There’s a developing grassy nose, cream=putty, pickled walnuts and an array of choice nibbles from a sweet cheese & wine laden picnic.
    T: Honeyed straw that hangs around. The highlight is the mouthfeel transition from grassy to waxy clingfilm with a soft-dry-squidgy sweetness. A long travel with a soft peated-putty, honey-malted sweetness.
    F: Follows up with a long finish of soft bitter-sour complex-sweet cream and sweet herbal notes.
    C: Delicious stuff. Right up there with Phil’s Brora this morning. Talking of Brora, let’s try Diageo’s latest Special Release Brora.Scores an A

    Tasting Notes: Nose: No superficial aroma is required, no patch added, no dominant barrel! The aromas flow naturally and, of course, from the glass into my nose. First, an ultra complex citrus note strikes that I seldom had in this complexity and ramification! Slightly waxy, in fact, somewhat reminiscent of Brora, dry, elegant. Although it also shows vanilla, which appears perfectly integrated and very natural. Then a fragrant bouquet, but with earthy proportions, some linseed oil, milk chocolate and shortbread of the finest kind! Wiry minerality pervades the malt from start to finish!
    Mouth: Great power without superficial alcohol! Fruity, sweet, with fine vanilla but also immediately with minerality, earthiness, beeswax and honey. But the malt is anything but a heavyweight, comes rather easily, at this level but also powerful, strong and totally consistent. Over time, then herbal tea, sweet mint and the finest vanilla pastry. A real step to the departure can not be noticed, everything goes seamlessly into each other, and so the malt disappears slowly and nobly!
    Finish: See above!
    Conclusion: What a nice whisky, art in the glass and in the bottle, elegant, understated and magnificent! https://whiskycuse.wordpress.com/

    A very intense and oaky Convalmore, with a rather fruity nose,  and intense spicy and peppery flavours on the palate.

    A nice and enjoyable Convalmore that contrast with the earlier specia releases versions:
