Customer Rating

The second 1977 vintage of Convalmore from Diageo's Special Releases, with this 2013 bottling following the 2005. Official bottlings from the distillery are rare, and this is one of the best we've tried - an excellent balance of fruit and oak.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    Nose: Fields of new ferns, menthol, bruised mint and moss, with toffee, cedar and fruit underneath – dried strawberry and a touch of mango.

    Palate: Perfumed wood, incense, brown sugar, green leaves and rich earth, along with some alcohol heat. A drop of water softens the dram and peels back some of the wood to show off more sweetness, with chocolate wafers, shortbread, liquorice and mint.

    Finish: Waxed wood, incense, liquorice and dark chocolate.

    Comment: One of the most anticipated drams in the lineup and it meets expectation – a masterpiece of wood management with fruity spirit balanced by darker woody notes and spice. Tasty, and the label looks even better in person than in the picture…

  • Producer's Note

    Appearance: Vibrant amber or faded polished mahogany. Medium beaded and very viscous.

    Nose: Mild and profound, opening scented with eucalyptus oil and a trace of leather infusing a soft pillow of marshmallow and creamy toffee. Through this runs a rich vein of clean, tropical fruit sharpness, underscored by soft, crumbly, malty notes with a wisp of smoke. In time, the appetising fruit retreats into a rich, creamy shell. A little water brings up the soft toffee creaminess and a little mint, as the fruity complex becomes fresher.

    Body: Lightly oily. Smooth.

    Palate: Big and oily in texture; gently warming and extremely soft and comforting, like a whisky syrup!  The taste is immediately sweet yet, with a note of aniseed, not cloying. Successive waves of pepper, salt and smoke follow, revealing a mouth-drying nature. With water, the texture remains big, thick and tongue-coating; the taste is sweeter, cooler and minty; slightly dusty, too, with hints of shortbread and scented smoke.

    Finish: Superbly balanced, with an unusual aftertaste of perfumed smoke. There’s still sweetness but it’s in essence drying, with notable cedar-rich hints of cigar box.

    Astonishing! A unique and intense whisky, which I only re-open during special occasions. A compliment to the makers of the previous reviews/tasting notes. They are absolutely spot on! Indeed eucalyptus and mint. Some ripe fruit and spices on the palate. Some sweet spices and oaky flavours start to develop (toffee/fudge), especially when diluted with a splash of water, there will be more perception to sweetness. Amazing intensity, balance, complexity and length... conclusion: Outstanding whisky!
