  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 97 points Connoisseur

    The taste of this Caperdonich 1972 is even better than the nose.
    • Nose
      Tropical fruit: pineapple, peach and plums. Beeswax. Buttery notes as well. Some vanilla.
    • Taste
      Wow, what a mouthfeel! Waxy and oily. Sweet fruitiness of apricots and mango. Juicy oakiness. Sappy. Liquorice. It'all very smooth and well balanced.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet. Little spicy (pepper and paprika). Gingery. Utterly complex.

      Lots of fruits - big pineapples and sweet melons are most obvious to me. Honey, and beeswax. More fruits coming. together with some wood spices, and getting more waxy on the nose. A typical fruity Caperdonich. Some chocolate wafer appear after a sip.

      Mixed fruits juice scream out on your tongue, with a nice thick mouthfeel. A little bit of oak, which is good for such a high age whisky. Vanilla, and some creaminess.

      Fresh fruits, slightly dry and nutty, the oakiness is more prominent on this long finish, makes it a little bit bitter.

    Tropical fruits, varnish, sweet spices, vanilla, custard, creamy and fruity, excellent

    The greatest Caper profile - fruit bomb balanced with notes of oak wood - fantastic!
    • Nose
      96 96
      Plenty of overripe fruits, tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit, pineapples, honey, hints of solvent - great!
    • Taste
      95 95
      Punchy, sirupy, again tons of tropical fruits, spices, pepper, nutmeg, cloves, good sweetness, fine oak wood - excellent!

      Long, warm, the oak wood becomes a bit louder but still good
