Lot RO/15/06. What a wonderful find! It's rare that I get to taste a whisky older than I am, and I take the chance every time I can. This is only the second Convalmore I've ever had, and this is reminiscent of a good Rosebank. Lots of fruit, some milk and yoghurt notes, and sweet alluring pomegranate molasses. Excellent whisky.


I like this a lot.
