  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    One of ther few - if not only - official bottlings of Caperdonich. Forget the nose, it all about the juicy fruity sweetness of the palate. Bottled somewhere in the 1970's.
    • Nose
      Starts quite malty. Cereal grain and porridge. Also mineral notes of wet stones and chalk. A little metalic. Soapy notes later on. Typical blenders whisky, never meant for single malt stardom.
    • Taste
      Wow, what a punch for 40%. More on citrus fruit now; lemon and lime. White grapes. Lots of gooseberries as well. Also greenhouse notes of cut grass, apple mint and barely sugar. Taste is much better than the nose.
    • Finish
      Medium long. hot and spicy with black pepper and some clove. Eucalyptus. Liquorice at the end.

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    An unexpected strong nose on cream and citrus, lemon, lime, hints of pear.
    A very fizzy palate, hot for 40% slightly rough, lacks balance still on white fruits and a hints of peat but its kind or quirky, a zesty feisty young whisky.
    Finish ix quite short but ok and there is a nice sweetness at the end (fructose).
    This 5 year OB Caperdonich is one I have wanted to try for some time as it is not readily available, sweeter and more full on than its stablemate Glen Grant 5 year.
    I like it.
