This bottle is one high historical value distilled in 1968 three years after the resumption of operation. Although the frequency was 40 degrees, there was little stimulation, but the scent was very complicated, there were hints of black vinegar and plum. Looking at overseas evaluation, there seems to be a tendency to score points in this respect, but is not it a Japanese-style feeling relatively friendly to Japanese people? It was a unique and interesting bottle. 9 without adding water http://www.whiskylink.com/?p=17955

    Very interesting old Caperdonich bottled in an era in when it was not a cult whisky as it is today.
    • Nose
      Starts very flowery. Lilac and freesias. Lavender as well. Then followed by notes of apricot and peach. Some smoke at the background.
    • Taste
      Nuttiness of toasted almonds. Vanilla and honey. Butterscotch. Spice oak. Also coconut. Burnt wood. Hints of sherry?
    • Finish
      Medium long. Quite dry but still warming. Caramel. Cinnamon.
