    A tad out of balance for a single score. On a whole compared with other old Capers or other old speysiders, this isn't the best because of the oaky palate and short finish. If you give it a lot of time and more weight to the nosing, this is delightfull.
    Tasted at the WCY 69/ 50yr tasting in jan. 2019

      A little shy in the beginning. It's not the fruityard I would love to see. Sure there's the citrus fruit and some apple but rather grassy and straw. With patience more banana and some guave. Yeah, almost tropical.
    • Taste

      The first nip was nothing spectaculair. The apples accompanied by honey and some spices like vanilla and ginger are good, but with some time it becomes more deeper with orange, peach and pineapple.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Short, but with time it grows bigger but still too shy on the fruit and big on the oaky tannins.

    Very nice Caper, although next to impossible to find nowadays. Thanks,
    Arnout!
    • Nose
      Good nose with apple, mint, chamomile tea and vanilla. Something nutty
      and some mandarin. Hints of peat as well! Not really a fruit bomb, but pleasant
      nonetheless.
    • Taste
      Nice body and an equally nice spiciness. The mandarins now take the
      reins, accompanied by oak and peppers. Honeysweet.
    • Finish
      The medium long finish makes the oak speak even more, turning the malt a
      tad dry at the death.
