Convalmore 1982 Private Collection Description
This Convalmore 1982 single malt from the long-gone Convalmore Distillery is a sensational addition to any collection. From independent bottler Gordon & Macphail comes this rare expression, distilled in 1982 and bottled in August 2020. Bottled at cask strength at 54.9% abv, this single cask expression is free from artificial colouring and chill filtration.
You can still see the Convalmore Distillery for the roadside, but all the equipment has been long gone, and now the building is only used as a storage warehouse. The distillery made a name for itself only after its discontinuation, a common fate for trail-blazing artists. This is Speyside at its best, and most nostalgic.
Nose: aromas of oaky vanilla, sultanas, toffee apples and soft dried fruits.
Palate: apple crumble, vanilla custard, soft apricots.
Finish: decadent and divine, with notes of caramel, cinnamon, and toasted oak.
