    No way this is 40 years old - it's still so fresh and intense! Another great Caper fruit bomb from 1972. Fantastic!
    • Nose
      Intense, fruity, honey comb, overripe bananas, passion fruit, hints of vanilla, creme brulee, cooked oranges - superb!
    • Taste
      Fresh, punchy, oily, fruity, tons of citrus fruits and tropical fruits, very fine wood notes, subtle sweetness - excellent!
    • Finish
      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.
    • Nose
      What a
      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.
    • Taste
      It
      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
      The
      finish could have been somewhat longer, but it does not detract from the fun. Slightly bitter death.
