  1. Master Quill scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Color: Gold

    Nose: Yeah this definitively is a 1972 Caperdonich from the good casks. Nice waxy, old bottle smell. Very elegant granny in her old room. Being used to these casks at cask strength, this sample does seem less up front. Still I like this very much, the reduction didn`t spoil the whisky at all. It shows a dimension, that was hidden behind the fruits and wax in the cask strength versions. It makes it smell like an old spices warehouse. Still the fruit and the wax, such a typical combination for these Caperdonichs are so good. After some air lightly spiced wood and vanilla enter the mix. This is an example of perfect balance.

    Taste: Here there is some spicy wood, it has a touch of cannabis (given off by the oak), that makes this very nice! Light waxiness and so very fruity. Half sweet. Think yellow fruits, peaches, partly in syrup. Wow! I was afraid reduction would make the palate thin, but it didn`t. Hint of coffee. Again perfect balance. Reduction probably did shorten the finish a little. But that doesn`t spoil the fun. One element of caution. Don`t let it sit too long in your glass. Air brings out a little bitterness and other woody parts that don`t do this Caperdonich right.

    Unbelievable that after all these years there is no strong wood that ruins the picture, bitters the finish, and overpowering it all. They don`t make them like this anymore. Do yourself a favour and try one of these before it`s too late and they are gone forever. Fabulous stuff! Of all casks #74xx, cask #7424 is considered the best, and that one I scored 93 points. This Mo Or isn`t scoring much less. I would have loved, for educational purposes, to taste a cask sample of this. Well done Mo Or!

    Original Tasting Notes


    Nose: Needs a moment to breathe, but reveals a beautiful composition of fresh and

    fruity notes. Also some dates and figs. Excellent balance.


    Taste: More smooth features in the taste with cream, something nutty and heather



    Finish: Outstanding long and flowery finish. Lavender and herbal tea come to the

    fore. A delicate flavour of mint is there as well
