    With water - a few drops

    The nose is a notch sweeter but just as involving.

    The palate is also sweeter with the bitterness gone with just a lovely fruity creaminess left. Finish is still on the long side but not as powerful as when neat.Quality for sure.
    • Nose
      Now that is a nose of quality, lots of fruit, ripe plum, peach, cinder toffee, rich chocolate, dark honey, furniture polish,
    • Taste
      Full on attack that coats the tongue, sherry, peat, woody bitterness, hints of orange, Christmas spices like you get in mulled wine, buttercream, caramel, rich plum, dark cherries that are almost ove ripe
    • Finish
      Long, still dances on the tongue, with a battle between the woody bitterness and sweet fruit right to the end.

    Sweeter on the nose than on the palate, very complex with many different notes - not just honey and fruits like the other Caper 1972 from TWA. A fantastic bottling!
    • Nose
      Intense fruity, apricots, quinces, honeydew, whiffs of leather, nice sherrywood notes, cinnamon, spices - very complex, superb!
    • Taste
      Very oily and creamy, liquorice, peppery, great wood notes, subtle sweetness, mixed fruit bag of dried fruits, citrus fruits, followed by hints of coffee, mediterranean spices - excellent!
    • Finish
      Medium long, smooth, more zesty and little drying in the end

    Hallelujah! The Lord is believed. What is it a privilege to be able to taste things like this in your life. Man man, how wonderful is this ... I feel an upcoming eruption of lyricism, but I am going to hold myself back. In terms of associations, I refer to the two previous reviews with great pleasure. Yet this still plays a higher class. Well, a class, the difference is more than a point on my scale. The difference is mainly in the intensity of the aromas, the expressiveness goes into overdrive. Also compared to all other Caperdonichs that I have already tasted. Both on the nose and on the taste you get a concentrated concentration of scents and flavors that make your way past your nose and taste buds. The fruit of all kinds - both dried, stewed and tropical hand in hand - is nothing short of grand. The wax (waxed leather, beeswax), the pollen, the milk chocolate and the honey are wonderfully smooth. The herbs (that ginger!) And the grassy give the character. The juicy oak supports and strengthens the whole in a sublime way. On the nose, on the taste, in the aftertaste, on every level he wins the argument of his competitors. Caperdonich 1972 at its absolute best. Full of his smell and taste of his glory. Hosanna in the high. 95/100

    Not the fruitbomb like most caper 1972 but way more complex than most capers
