Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1972 DT

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.09 points

  1. Man of Skye did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Caperdonich 38 yo 1972/2010 (52.6%, Duncan Taylor, Rare Auld, cask #7439, 137 bottles)  Colour: gold. Nose: this one is less emphatically honeyed, a tad more austere at very first nosing but after only a few seconds, it does burst with the very same notes of yellow flowers, honey, Mirabelle plums, figs… Beautiful! With water: yes! Sure there’s a little more pencil shaving but some added whiffs of damp earth, leaves and touches of humus bring even more complexity to the table. Mouth (neat): it’s got a bit of the oakiness that was in the octave but other than that, it’s all a silky and hyper-fruity and honeyed development, exactly ala 1972 Caperdonich. With water: yes, exactly. Finish: long, with bags and bags of sultanas and jars and jars of honey. Comments: just another great 1972 Caperdonich. SGP:641 - 91 points.
