Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1972 TWm
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.18 points
- No way this is 40 years old - it's still so fresh and intense! Another great Caper fruit bomb from 1972. Fantastic!
Intense, fruity, honey comb, overripe bananas, passion fruit, hints of vanilla, creme brulee, cooked oranges - superb!
Fresh, punchy, oily, fruity, tons of citrus fruits and tropical fruits, very fine wood notes, subtle sweetness - excellent!
Long and warm, still fruity, not drying

- A grand
whisky. The nose especially is incredibly good. What a choice! We Belgians rightfully consider ourselves
lucky. It sold out in a couple of hours.
grand nose! Honeysweet from both European and exotic fruit. Silky soft and
delicious! Fresh on yellow apples, gooseberries, a basket full of mandarins and
lemons, but also pineapple, kiwi, green banana and quince. Dark honey, but not
too much. Not a trace of oak. Fruity is the keyword here. Very soft on the spices. A slight metallic
touch, as from silver polish, gives it a nice depth.
arrives graciously on the tongue, not bite but still prickling. Somewhat more spicy now. Ginger and
liquorice. The cask
did its job, without trying to dominate the spirit. Again very fruity, but a
wonderful bitterness is working (and succeeding) to give it the perfect
balance. I do not want to add any water to this.
finish could have been somewhat longer, but it does not detract from the fun. Slightly bitter death.
