"Taken from three American Oak hogsheads filled on Thursday 22nd November 1984, a matter of months before the distillery closed forever. A fine farewell, very little of the malt remains, which harnesses the golden, smooth character and rich fruitiness of Convalmore."

Bottled: 25.01.21 | 3 Refill American Oak Hogsheads 

Number Bottled: 647 | Dufftown, Speyside

The golden, smooth character and rich, sweet fruitiness of Convalmore are at their mature peak in this, our last 36 year old. Very little of the malt from this little known ghost distillery remains. This release comes from three American Oak hogsheads filled on Thursday, November 22nd 1984, a few months before the distillery closed.

The mild nose is rich in sweet aromas on a woody base; the top notes suggest pale fruits such as lychees, white grapes or melon, all with gentle acidity. The texture is thick and creamy-smooth, while the vibrant taste skilfully balances sweet hints of mandarin orange with a peppery, oaky dryness. The finish oozes rich, sweet warmth with light spice, and traces of coconut in the aftertaste.

This exceptionally sunny Convalmore was made just at the time when I was mastering the art of nosing. This in turn enabled me to see each malt whisky as an individual, rather than just a representative of its region, and armed with this insight I became a blender.

I have always felt a sadness that this way of seeing things came too late to save Convalmore from closure. As a Speyside, it was one of many; judged by taste, it stood alone. A total eclipse of the sun occurred on the very day these casks were filled. Savour this fine farewell to a fast disappearing malt, and you may find that a fitting metaphor...”
