Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1996 McG

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.33 points

  1. zinaf scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    It's quite OK. I gave it an extra point for the good development with water and time on fruits - those pears that emerged were delicious :) 
    • Nose
      The alcohol is noticeable at first nosing. It is rather austere. Reminds of fruit distillate. Hints of icing sugar.

      With water: nice as it is more approachable but flattens a bit the spectrum.

      With a bit of time: fruits come up - pears in particular. Nice pear - and it lingers for a long long time.
    • Taste
      Sweetish, vanilla.

      With water: stays in the same vanilla vain. Opens up the spices. 
    • Finish
      Short
