Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1972 DT

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.44 points

  1. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Not overtly fruity or complex, at first, like some Caperdonichs can be, but the longer it stays in your mouth, the better it gets. Layers and layers of flavors, with green tea, honey (lots), Korean pear dominating, but there is also a bit of funkiness initially that disappears after the first sip. Oak is present here, but it provides more of a nice backbone rather than something that ends in a bitter note. I would score this a 92.5 if I can. Not something that absolutely wows, but is thoroughly enjoyable.

  2. Rossi99 scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    I love the extravagant flowery fruitiness nosing but there is some animal (musk?) touch in the palate and the finish that I'm not quite into it.

    Other than that It's fabulous!

  3. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Another wonderful Caperdonich and quite a bargain as well! One point less for having a slightly less unique nose, but on the other hand this is priced well below the TWA version.
    • Nose
      very close to the 1972 bottled by Whisky Agency, which is currently my benchmark Caperdonich. Furniture polish and oak (which fades out over time) with tangerine, yellow plums, oranges and a little mango. Very juicy, a tad more citrusy than the TWA version. Maybe a bit more spices: cinnamon and mint, a little pepper. Vanilla. Slightly less beehive notes, although there's certainly some wax and honey involved. Again very attractive with great depth.
    • Taste
      Assertive and punchy. Initially there's a certain sharpness from the oak but over time it gets smoother. Very fruity: apricots, fig marmalade, honey. Plenty of spices (pepper, mint, cloves) and a faint bitter note from the oak.
    • Finish
      Ginger and liquorice, mixed with honey.
