hs305 gave this whisky 90 points

[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...

Color
Old gold
Nose

Orangensüße, Popcorn, dahinter richtig dicke und cremige tropische Früchte, Mango und Papaya und Reinstform, ein paar Gebäcknoten kommen dazu, schnuppert sich wie Mango-Muffins, am Ende wird es noch leicht angekohlt, beim zweiten Schluck habe ich einen grasigen Touch, diese dicke Süße bleibt 

Taste

Cremig süß, Banane, Eichenwürze, extrem dick, leichte Wärme, gelbe Früchte

Finish

Die Wärme kombiniert mit den gelben tropischen Früchten, hält sich sofort sehr lange, keine Trockenheit, aber viel Würze

Color

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

Comments

Must have been a great butt - so fruity and spicy and not tired at all after 40 years - just fantastic!

Nose

Nicht sehr dunkel in der Farbe - und das nach 40 Jahren im Butt. 


Der riecht leicht, eher unauffällig. Das Aroma ist schwer auszumachen - der hat etwas Zitroniges, fruchtig und würzig. 

Taste

Der Wolf im Schafspelz. Wow! Was für ein Antritt. Der kommt mit aller Gewalt, aber trotzdem nicht überfordernd. Cremig, würzig, ... warm und rund. Speichel in meinem Mund, ich schwebe. 

Finish

Ganz milde Holznoten, jetzt auch etwas Vanille. Das ist einer der alten Sorte: ohne Schnörkel, reine Fassaromen in Fassstärke. 

Comments

Traumhaft. Wirklich.
