  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2014/zwei-lang-gereifte-caperdonich-von-duncan-taylor-peerless-und-romantic-rhine-collection-31653/ Color: Corn yellow / Full Gold
    Nose: Very fruity and mineral-salty. A fruit mix of orange, mandarin, yellow pomaceous fruit and tropical fruits. Underlaid, waxy tea flavors, dried vanilla pods with sweet honey and also here with some gum.
    Taste: Gentle and fruity-sweet, then tenderly bitter and fresh. Spicy nut and tobacco flavors with wood and vanilla again. Now more green and bitter notes (green peppers) are added.
    Finish: Long - slightly bitter, green tea, licorice and wood, a little bland and getting dry.
    86 points (nose: 89 / taste: 86 / finish: 84)

    Very nice. Nose is very enjoyable, dark dried fruits, plums, raisins, muscovadosugar, chocolate and coffe. Little bit of grapefruit in there as well. Nice mouthfeel, dark fruits, little peppery and some acidity in a nice way. Good lenght on the finish, although there comes through a vague metallic aftertaste at the very end. But, all in all, joy & delight!

    [November, 2015]  I had this dram during an "30+ years" tasting at Bonn.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  Unfortunately I took no detailed notes.
