  2. MGHOW scored this whisky 74 points Member Senior

    Light, flagrant, quite strongly alcoholic, a little bit bitter. Not a great classic to be honest.

  3. ctu scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Easy to drink, 46% ABV is pleasant, and the oak is solid beside the fruitness.
    • Nose
      Flowers, honey, vanilla and orange.
    • Taste
      Refined. Forest fruits, caramel, honey and gentle oak. Touch of pepper and chili.
    • Finish
      Long, fruity.

    A good easy drinking Caper, sure its only 46% but I think that works well here.

    A solid 90 points
    • Nose
      Vanilla, caramel, wafer, biscuit, some herbal/floral notes, a little honeycomb.
    • Taste
      Quite punchy for 46% with a few initial bitter notes mixed in with a toffee sweetness.

      Pastrami, caramel, soft spices with some oak notes.
    • Finish
      Medium length, soft with some melon at the end

  7. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Ingenious full Sherrymalt, well if I would find the one for the 150, - on the basis of: ')
    • Nose
      Vinous, berries, compote, dark honey, nice hint of anise behind
    • Taste
      Mouthwatering in the true sense of the word, so rarely seen in 46%, dark fruit, berries, orange peel, spicy oak, leather, very full
    • Finish
      Long, Btiterorange and berry bushes remain in the throat

  8. Dede scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A pretty Caperdonich, not stunning but nice. Despite his simplicity, he does not deny his age.
    • Nose
      Light, but aromatic. Candied orange and even orange blossom, raisins, but delicate, far from the big armada of sherry monster, pear, barley sugar and some cut grass. Not a stunning complexity, but pleasant.
    • Taste
      Quite delicate, but not too light, well balanced, with nice notes of bitter orange, green apple, malt, some spices (ginger, nutmeg) and a controlled oak bringing a bitterness of good quality.
    • Finish
      Quite long, woody but without stifling the tangy taste of orange and green apple.

  9. magic_slim scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    I am glad that that G&M bottled this one at 46% and not at 40% or 43%. Good and recommendable whisky although there are even better ones from this distillery available.
    • Nose
      Aromatic: Oranges, honey and hay. Light, balanced and clean.
    • Taste
      Smooth and very pleasant to enjoy. Malty, vanilla, Fresh wood, mild chili and white pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium long, malty, spicy and warming. Balanced and clean.
