    Another magnificent Caperdonich. Almost no more surprises. Beautiful balance, huge fruit.
    • Nose
      As always with this vintage fruit salad. Very exotic.
      Passion, mango, pineapple, guava. Apricot, quince.
      Wax, camphor and fresh mint.
      Liquorice stick. Almond milk and milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      On the palate the fruit dominates once more. A real explosion.
      Pineapple, mango, plum, peach. Green apple.
      We also have white pepper, vanilla, milk chocolate.
      Very light tobacco.
    • Finish
      Finale shower on the sweet side of exotic fruits.
      Liquorice, elderflower, strawberry, coconut.

    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
