Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1972 DT
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.58 points
- I had great expectations and they were mostly fullfilled. But if I compare to some of the greatest Caper 72 fruit bombs I have to say that this one is probably not at the very top but still extremely good. Anyways great stuff!
Very fresh, intense, green fruits, menthol, eucalyptus, honeydew, after a while more tropical fruits, pineapple and mango, also green bananas, whiffs of overripe fruits and solvent as well, some notes of oak wood, spices, pepper - very good
Very creamy, mellow, fruity, subtle sweetness, yellow fruits, bananas, apricots, peaches, jam, apple mash, woody notes, more spices, also some herbs - great
Medium long, warm, zesty, little bit of grapefruits, more herbs, probably also a bit tannic
- Very complicated. Constantly you discover new facets in taste and aroma.
- Yummy, nose full of jam fruit, redcurrant jelly, strawberry jam, dried apricots, but also encaustic, beeswax and milk chocolate. A little nutmeg too. It is more expressive than the C # 7420, more greedy still.
Powerful, but not aggressive, more spicy than nose, as often these old speysides, it still has a lot to offer in terms of cooked fruit and candied orange peel, with a bonus of a very nice minty note . Again, it is more explosive than the 7420 (but my bottle has been open for a while too).
The finish is long, fruity and tannic but not excess, the bitterness being counterbalanced by a very nice minty freshness.
At all levels, this malt is still a step up from the already excellent C # 7420. Top notch Caperdonich !!
- With twenty Capers under the belt, I think I am
entitled to an opinion. So trust me when I say that this is one mighty
Oh, my god! The nose is
like a fruit salad, but very complex and waxy. Juicy fruit, mind you. Apricots,
peach, banana, coconut, pears, oranges. The cask did its work, but remains in
the background. Chamomile, fresh mint and a bit
of vanilla. Outstanding!
It is rough on the palate. A lot spicier than on the nose too. Apricots and fresh figs now. The
mint returns. The tannins are much louder, but the whole remains perfectly
rear their heads. Very, very nice!
The finish is long and warm, all on bitter oranges.
