Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1992 vW

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.56 points

  1. Feis_ile did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The value of this bottle is dated on an auction side, you pay a little bit € 170

  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A rather immature malt, but with typical Caper notes, absolute fans can access if you get it for the original price, otherwise you would prefer almost all the other capers.
    • Nose
      Light honey, white fruits, grapefruit, pineapple, light malt, sweet honey in between, toffee and light grapes, a bit flat
    • Taste
      Lemon, green apple, wasabi, white pepper, in between some light herbal honey, vanilla, pear, cinnamon, light toffee, grapes, tangerines
    • Finish
      Light malt, green apple, lemon zest, white tea and white pepper, only medium in length

  3. Dirk scored this whisky 85 points Super Administrator

    Quite supprised by this dram, I think van Wees normally isn't known for their high quality releases. This is definitely a good dram. And a caperdonich for this price... Well it's not the high quality of the 72's that is for sure.
    • Nose
      White fruits, green apple, little citrus which after some time become more expressive. Sweet honey and a little bitterness in the back.
    • Taste
      Malty and fruits, green apple, indeed like Erik mentions mandarins. Little honey and pepper
    • Finish
      Pepper, fruity, mid long finish. Sweet mouth coating, a tad hot / chilli pepper?

  4. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    tasted with Aby ad JJ

    sample available on www.whiskysample.nl
    • Nose
      citrus, caramel and honey like Dailuaine
    • Taste
      honey and fresh fruits - mandarins and green apple
    • Finish
      medium drying with tea, creamy, spices and later like after shave (offnote)

  5. yapi scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Fruity, malty nose, a bit of vanilla. The same in the mouth, with a citrus twang. Overall good starters whisky. Not too hard on any note. Small pepper in the finish. Nice price for a 19yo Caper.
