Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1998 SMS

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.00 points

  1. Gronqvist did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    According to the bottle label, the distillery status incidentally, incorrectly stated as: "Working".

  2. Sonett scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    This was a surprise. Expecting a more typical Caperdonich and ending up with more of an Islay touch rather than the expectation.

    I am pleased that I bought more than on bottle
    • Nose
      Expecting the traditional Caperdonich nose you are instead hit by an intense peat. Behind the peaty entry comes sweet vanilla, malt and hay
    • Taste
      Enters sweet and mild but changes rapidly to a spicy sharpness and increasing peat
    • Finish
      Long and spicy with a peaty ending

  3. Feusi scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Interessting how different whisky can be
    • Nose
      Some sweet bourbon casks with a surprising smoke.
    • Taste
      Sweet, smoky and crispy, bitter herbs and flowers. Sharp alcohol burns on the tongue.
    • Finish
      Rather short with a smoky sweetness

  4. Willie JJ scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Weird, but still drinkable
    • Nose
      Pickled onion crisps and smoked bacon
    • Taste
      Sweet smoke and lots of salty spiced gammon
    • Finish
      White wine and cabbage water with fresh cracked peppercorns
