  1. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Whisky is quite simple, a modest palette of derivatives and a shallow depth, but at the same time quite smooth, balanced, without obvious flaws and distortions.

      Open, wet, spicy wood, raisins, wood dust, carpentry workshop, sweet creamy and pastry notes, eucalyptus, coated tablets, leather goods.

    This tastes like a really old Highlander and I have never thought Caperdonich was typical for the Speyside region anyway?

    Pretty good.
    • Nose
      Smoked meats, toffee, caramel, Christmas cake and a few Brandy notes mixed in with slight orange.

      Very nice.
    • Taste
      Bitter/sweet fight from the start.

      My initial thought is that the bitterness wins but give it a little time and sweet toffee notes come through mixed in with with apple and orange and some cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Quite long, smooth and finally the sweetness wins the battle.
