    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!
    • Nose
      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
    • Taste
      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
    • Finish
      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.
    • Nose
      Chocolate, carton, tobacco and paprika. Fruity, spices - cinnamon and cardemon, leather, some paint, citrus, fudge and cappuccino.
    • Taste
      Espresso, pastry, honey, gooseberries and dates. Almond paste, syrup and fruity.
    • Finish
      Dates, honey and woody.

  10. markjedi1 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Just a touch more fruity than the other one. Simply fantastic Caper.
    Thanks, Teun!
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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
      pepper. Great!
    • Finish
      On the long, sweet finish I get even more spices and a touch of oak.
