  1. Malinois scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The nose is a lovely profile: lemon orange fruity with some powder sugar and some freshness to it.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Sweet as in powder sugar, lemon orange fruit style, sour and sweet play goes on and on, it's also fresh like a faint breeze gliding throughout some green barley on beautiful a spring day (no barley smell, just something that comes in mind). Some oak wood notes come trough after some time. The high abv% isn't noticeable on the nose.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Creamy feeling with the alcohol coming trough which makes it a bit rougher. The fruit is there, more orange style this time and les alcohol feeling to it. The creamy side is back and it's chaperoned by some juicy oak and some fresh cut grass.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Creamy, orange fruits die out at a medium time and are getting bit by bit overtaken by the juicy oak. Which turns after a while drying.

    • Nose
      88 88
      Fresh, lemon and lemon. I also smell the skin of a freshly cut orange. Certainly not bad
    • Taste
      86 86
      Dry, lots of alcohol and again that orange that comes through. Can use some water.
    • Finish
      85 85
      In the finish I taste white chocolate, some sweet notes of vanilla and citrus fruit.

    Blind tasting. My guess for this whisky was 7 YO Old Pulteney. I am not a fan of this.
    • Nose
      Yoghurt, pineapples, grainy, vanilla, coco and popsicle. Very limited impact from the cask I think.
    • Taste
      This just doesn't do it me. It is grainy with pineapples, gummy bears and licorice. 
    • Finish
      Vanilla, pineapples and nuts.

    Caperdonich distillery has been closed for some time now what is still on the market is getting rarer.
    • Nose
      Sour apples, but especially pears, hints of hay and powdered sugar.
    • Taste
      Creamy in the mouth well seasoned delicious fruity quite a bit of lemon the apples are now louder than the pears, hint of vanilla.
    • Finish
      The final is pretty long with apples and vanilla.

    Not the most complex
    Caper, true, but very nice indeed. Around 92 EUR.
    • Nose
      Powerful nose on
      white fruit. Sour apples, but mostly pears. Hint of hay. Icing sugar. After a
      few moments, some furniture polish. Some candy as well. Then midly rotting
      wood, like what you find on the forrest floor right after a shower. I think
      this is nice. Adding water makes the nose more creamy, but changes little else.
    • Taste
      It is very creamy on
      the palate, well-seasoned (ginger, liquorice, pepper) and wonderfully fruity.
      Quite a bit of citrus, upholstered with some white fruit. The apples are now
      louder than the pears. Loads of vanilla as well. Make that vanilla ice! With
      water, the fruit is more dominating as is the icing sugar.
    • Finish
      The finish is fairly
      long on apples and vanilla with some woodsmoke at the death.

  6. Ivynor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A whisky "fun", unfortunately not complex and without much relief.
    • Nose
      Quite powerful, mineral, with a lot of alcohol. After aeration, wood, varnish, green apple back. With water: more acidulous.
    • Taste
      It's better. Alcohol well integrated, quite sweet and fruity, on fresh fruits, but especially the harlequin candy of Lutti! A real acid bomb, very simple and original. Less marked with water, but made more creamy and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Apple, wood, always a little acidity.

    Bottler`s Notes:

    Colour : Yellow gold.
    Nose : Sweet and creamy candies. Zesty malt, hay barn aromas. Earthy, chocolate orange.
    Palate : Nougat, chocolate, nutty, vanilla ice cream. Trace of coal smoke on the finish.
    Conclusion : An intriguing and unusual malt from this sadly lost distillery.
