  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 96 points Moderator

    Still very fresh and complex. This must have been an incredible sherry cask - this one is for me on the top level with some of the best old sherried Springbanks - very difficult to taste anything else afterwards - Fantastic!
    • Nose
      Heavy, sweet, all kinds of dried fruits, raisins, plums, prunes, dates, figs, dark acacia honey, dark chocolate, hits of toffee, fine oak wood, whiffs of sherry, no rubber or leather at all - just fruity - spices, cinnamon, cloves, a bit nutmeg too - Wonderful!
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, liquorice, fruity, mostly all the dark and dried fruits again following the nose, good sweetness, the oaky notes become a bit louder but never drying - still very balanced - Superb!
    • Finish
      Long and warm, creamy with more fruits and spices, still good and balanced sweetness - no bitterness at all - perfect strength - no water needed - Excellent!

    That is an outstanding whisky, cheistmas cake all over the place, freshness, fruitiness and perfect balance. Amazing, Without any doubt the best caperdonich I have ever had!
