Convalmore 1977 Cadenheads Authentic Collection 21 Year Cask Strength 64.4%
This 21 Year Old was already bottled in 1998 by Cadenhead in their Authentic Collection, meaning cask strength. In this case, a whopping 64,4%. Knowing that the industry standard is actually 63,5%, one can only wonder at what strength this spirit was put to sleep. I better keep water close by. On the label, it still says Convalmore-Glenlivet.
Boy, what a creamy nose. It is all about beeswax and paraffin. Underneath a whole range of yellow fruit. Oranges, apricots, peach, maybe even some pineapple on syrup. Nuts. Turn that into praliné. Touch of leather. The crust of freshly baked white bread, no kidding! But wait! It is not over yet. Humus and wet leaves, green twigs, and moss emerge as well. A walk in the forest after heavy rain. Nice, very nice! Lastly, there is a delicate smokiness. This is a grand nose!
Wow, this does not need water, who would have thought? Very creamy on the palate with loads of honey, citrus, mango, lemon grass, and a touch of oak. That takes care of a smokiness that offers true character to this Convalmore. Spices: pepper, salt, and even a touch of curry.
In the long and spicy finish, I get a lot of licorice, bitter oranges, and almonds.

Driving down Ventura Blvd in Studio City in the 1960’s has something in common with today, Flask Fine Wine & Whisky- Flask first opened its doors to the public in 1962. Decades later and it still remains a respected fixture in the Los Angeles community.
