Prima & Ultima Convalmore 36 year old 1984, 48.6%

Price: $32,450/set of 8 Issue: Winter 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Disgorged from three American oak hogsheads filled in the final months of the distillery's production, the nose brings forth golden syrup, key lime pie, green melon, two-tone sherbet lollipops, tart apple, and an array of fruity esters. Plenty of oak, a hint of wax, and a touch of astringency. It's what Convalmore does best: sweet golden fruits with a developing waxiness, mandarin orange, ground pepper, lime zest, and spiced caramel. (647 bottles)
