  1. Derekyu928 scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    Capadonic 36 / DT AULD & RARE / November 1972 Distillation / September 2009 Bottling / 51.2% cask # 7446 / Bottle # 136/283

    The nose is a fresh fleur-like expectation.

    The body is a sweet peach

    The finish is “skin skin” and the scent of the tide

    It is the best taste for an after-meal drink.

    Without water, the nose is overwhelmingly woodspice, with just a feint hint of fruit at the end, and some heat from the alcohol at 51.2%. That makes the flourish of soft fruits and spice on the palate a refreshing surprise.

    The fruits include guava, mango and tropical banana (the short and angular sweet type), with cardamon and vanilla in hefty proportion for spice.

    Just a delightful dram.

    With water, floral and herbal notes emerge on the nose, and the fruit and spice converge on the palate in a symphonic confluence.

    Thanks CJ.
    • Nose
      Sherry magnified by a waxy veil. Beeswax, royal jelly. Acacia honey.
    • Taste
      Quasi sweet, rich, honeyed.
    • Finish
      Intense, fruity. Light exoticism. Woody bitterness.
