  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [May, 2017]  I had this dram during the Cadenhead 175th Anniversary tasting in Campbeltown.

    The colour is old gold and the texture shows very late slow legs and very late sticky tears (there stays a fat ring at the top of the glass for some minutes).  The nose is extremely herbal with some hints of these delicious far east fish sauces - very strange but really interesting (and quite complex).  It arrives in the mouth a little hot but instantly coating.  No drying nor bitter moments (after 40 years in the cask!).  The taste again shows an extremely herbal and umami profile (I guess one can detect a two-digit number of different herbs in it) imbedded in a sound wooden structure.  The finish is long and spicy (peppers, even some hints of salt), again no drying nor bitter notes.  Some water opens up both the nose and the taste nicely, it adds chocolatey flavours to the finish (but the strong herbal aromas vanish somewhat).  It is easier the drink with water added, but it is much more fun to explore it when neat.

    A very interesting selection by Cadenhead and a worthy anniversary bottling.  I like it very much (except the price tag)...

    PS:  These strong herbal flavours seem to block my tastebuds for other aromas as I find some very delicate and subtle drams (that I know very well) just dull and unimpressive after this Convalmore.  So this is an egocentric whisky as it lets no room for others after it (except even more egocentric stuff like Ardbeg).  Nevertheless I like it, but it should be placed at the end of a tasting session...

    Blind tip:
    Littlemill
    Approximately 30 years
    Bourbon barrel
    Approximately 50%

    Resolution:
    Krass horny part. I'm pretty happy with my estimate. Thanks for the experience Eneloop2009 :-)
    • Nose
      Orange sweetness, popcorn, behind it really thick and creamy tropical fruits, mango and papaya and pure form, a few pastry notes come to sniff like mango muffins, in the end it is still slightly carburized, the second sip I have a grassy touch, this thick Sweetness stays
    • Taste
      Creamy sweet, banana, oak, extremely thick, light heat, yellow fruit
    • Finish
      The warmth combined with the yellow tropical fruits, lasts for a very long time, no dryness, but a lot of spice

    Must have been a great butt - so fruity and spicy and not tired at all after 40 years - just fantastic!
    • Nose
      Very fruity, apricots, sticky and honey so intense that it reminds on some glue solvent but really not bad, more on spices and oaky notes too
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, sweet, all kinds of ripe fruits, yellow, orange and red ones, spices, pepper, nutmeg, good oak wood - excellent
    • Finish
      Long, burning, spicy, zesty, sweet and more oak wood

  7. maltaholic scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Perfectly. For real.
    • Nose
      Not very dark in color - after 40 years in the butt.
      It smells light, rather unremarkable. The aroma is hard to tell - it has something lemon, fruity and spicy.
    • Taste
      A wolf in sheep's clothing. Wow! What a start. He comes with all his might, but not overwhelming. Creamy, spicy, ... warm and round. Saliva in my mouth, I float.
    • Finish
      Very mild woody notes, now some vanilla. This is one of the old varieties: no frills, pure barrel flavors in cask strength.
