Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1972 DT
10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.16 points
- Very nice sherry nose, smells great. Very pleasant and sweet in the mouth. Class finish. Very good whisky!
- The winner of an already ingenious tasting evening, both Caperdonich and the Octave series are underestimated for me again and again, here both show their full power!
Full broadside of beautiful Caperdonich force, apple rings, mango, pure fruit salad everywhere and all this also glazed with brown sugar, pear drops, apricot jellies, full of beautiful honey that goes deep into the nose, caramel, light leather, honeydew melon, some cappuccino behind it
Also pure fruit salad, here I could just copy everything from the nose, extremely strong, here is still cherry, blueberry jam, the honey is also very nice, malt is added, rather light than dark, mango, rosemary, thyme, again and again If one thinks he lets come after a strong tip from another side, has everything, fruit, malt, sweetness, acidity, banana jellies, marzipan
Drying, marzipan, honey, beautiful malt, apple peel, cherry with core, mango, rosemary, heather herbs, oregano, long to very long
- Birthday tasting 2015 with Aby and JJ.
Chocolate, carton, tobacco and paprika. Fruity, spices - cinnamon and cardemon, leather, some paint, citrus, fudge and cappuccino.
Espresso, pastry, honey, gooseberries and dates. Almond paste, syrup and fruity.
Dates, honey and woody.
- Just a touch more fruity than the other one. Simply fantastic Caper.
The nose is no less succulent that the previous one. Very smooth on all
kinds of fruit (mango and oranges mostly) with a similar edge. No broth, this
time, but something that reminds me of tomato soup. I know this sounds a bit
queer and makes it sound less fruity than it really is.
It is less oily than its predecessor, but no less expressive. Sweeter.
Very fruity animal. Jam of mango. Spicy: ginger, nutmeg and a pinch of chili
On the long, sweet finish I get even more spices and a touch of oak.
