  5. MaltMartin scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Peated Caperdonich, very rare and very strange indeed. I personally prefer the fruitier Capers, but it's fun to taste. Tnx for the sample Addy!
    • Nose
      Starts with smoked ham. Sweet-sour farmy notes of horse stable. Followed by seaweed and iodine. But also flowery notes. Camomile.
    • Taste
      Dry peat with a lemony twist. Malty notes and some cereal. Cut grass and fresh lime. Bitterness of grapefruit later on. A little thin in my view though.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Lightly smoky with a salty edge.

  6. captain Islay scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Tasting notes of blind tasting I was absolutely positively surprised, had typed on one of Islay and some older
    • Nose
      Salt, smoke, peat, honey, wine
    • Taste
      Hospital flavors, flowers and something old, balanced, full-bodied
    • Finish
      Nice persistent with smoke

    This is a peated version of the Caperdonich. It is quit sharp and is a bit nervous, but it`s fruity and smoke at the same time.
