Convalmore 32 Year Old
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Region

Speyside

Appearance

18CT gold. Good legs and very viscous.

Nose

A mellow base aroma, soft and sweet, lightly dusted with nutmeg and a hint of oak shavings. A fruity sensation gently appears before an intense brown sugar sweetness builds. Then the spicy notes continue to develop with an underlying green herbiness.

Body

Light to medium. Smooth textured.

Palate

Smooth, sweet and fruity, with a trace of crisp acidity and oak spice to balance the sweetness. The freshly baked apple pie on the nose persists with a now caramelised and bitter-sweet flavour.

Finish

Warm and spicy with liquorice that gradually fades to freshly sliced apples and a warming oak.

Information

Make: Convalmore

Age: 32 years old, distilled in 1984

Strength: 48.2% ABV

Place of Origin: Dufftown

Region: Speyside

Palate

Smooth, sweet and fruity, with a trace of crisp acidity and oak spice to balance the sweetness before it can cloy. The apples and pastry on the nose persist, now caramelized and bitter-sweet, as part of the fruity centre palate. With a splash of water the taste becomes lightly sweeter, while light acidity again steps in to reveal more complexity. The fruit is savoury; light floral notes appear; the oak picks up char; the spice is toasted and fragrant.

Nose

A mellow base aroma, soft and sweet, like a buttery pastry case, lightly dusted with nutmeg ready for a custard filling, or perhaps almond oil and oak shavings. Above this, there’s a fruity filling of gently sour apples, spiced pears and ripe melon, orange peel too, before an intense brown sugar sweetness builds. The spicy notes continue to develop, with clove and cinnamon-laced biscuits balanced by candied lemon, more sharp apple and an underlying green herbiness. A drop of water introduces a waxy note and suppresses the fruity elements.

Finish

Warming, spicy and lingering, with liquorice that fades to stewed, baked and fresh-sliced apples and warming oak that persists in closing, bitter-sweet flavours.
