  1. lincolnimp did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A WB value of 2000 euro is absolutely ridiculous for this bottle, the average pricing format does not work and this proves it.

    The bottle for 1500 euro is still available I believe on the Marketplace and trust me it will remain that way if it stays at that price.

    Please don`t pay any attention to the whisky barrel price.
    Edit 25th October 2018
    Leninsolo the price of 1000 euro is quite correct as a seller on the marketplace has one at that price.

    Flavor has notes of sherry, prunes, black pepper spices, dried fruits, new wood, barley malt and little acetone. Taste consists of pepper spices, sherry, barley malt, stewed apples. Finish has elements of dried fruits, spices.

  3. Kensay scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Aromatic first classical sherry, then added a lot of spices. The same thing happens in taste. The finish spoils the dryness and a sufficiently large amount of woody notes

    Empty Glass:  Tannin drives up here, cheap coffee dregs and twinges of metal (maybe aluminum).  The sweet sherry takes a back seat and more oak spices come up (mace and cassia), but the soft creamy note still lingers the strongest.     Oh man, this shows off a proper Sherry aged spirit.  This was so
    sweet and so delicious, I just wanted to curl up in it.  The metallic
    notes were a little off putting, but not so much that it was a
    distraction.  The hints of match heads actually cut the richness in the
    nose to a manageable level too.
    • Nose
      This is what its all about... Tobacco and sherry sweetness dominate this
      dram.  Honey and coffee dregs, cocoa and twinges of cherry medicine in
      the background.  Match heads at the start quickly give way to the sweet
      sherry and almost cut the sweetness down a bit.  There is a hint of
      metallic, but it's not derivative of the malt.
    • Taste
      Soft sweet and super smooth sherry malt lead the way.  Big cigar tobacco
      and 75% dark chocolate drive the bottom end.  The honey sweetness and
      hints of floral notes twist with rich Colombian dark roast coffee and
      touches of ginger spice.  The smoothness of this dram known no limits,
      water need not apply here.
    • Finish
      The sweet tirade continues, but offers more of the malt and hints of
      wood char and sweet oak throughout.  There's a soft almost creamy note
      that supports through out finish.

    A single cask release of 1982 vintage whisky from Caperdonich. This whisky has

    been aged for 30 years in a refill butt and bottled at cask strength, yielding

    just 209 bottles. An excellent edition to the growing range of malts in Douglas

    Laing`s Directors` Cut series.
