  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 95 points Moderator

    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

  4. MaltMartin scored this whisky 93 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.
