  2. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A typical sparkling, somewhat tropical caper donut is good, but is not eye-opening like some of the others from Caper.
    • Nose
      Pink and slightly white grapefruit, delicately sour, with hazelnut, a hint of toasted notes, moist hay, candied ginger, lemon peel, lemon grass, young honey
    • Taste
      Lively, fresh ginger, cardamom, the pink and white grapefruit again, green apple, salt notes and passion fruit, some kiwi and grasses
    • Finish
      Grapefruit peel, lemon peel, ginger, some anise and grasses, medium to long

    My first Caperdonich. With a thought for Etienne Bouillon, creator of The Belgian Owl who now works with stills used by Caperdonich. A discreet nose, quite elusive. It evolves constantly, passing by the flowers, the apple, the waxed wood, fruit more compote. Light but pleasant. In the mouth: then, it's beautiful. Soft but pressed, melted. At a time when we say that age does not count - and even I can say it on occasion - there 20 years of barrels, you feel them. This impression of fade characteristic of old malts. Spices very well proportioned, fresh fruit found in the final, super greedy, long, spicy, with a hint of bitterness.

    Enthusiasm 5/5

  5. Bosi scored this whisky 82 points Specialist

    A very soft, pleasant whisky whose aromas are very well balanced.
    • Nose
      The notes of nutmeg and vanilla are accompanied by aromas of lemon and malt. In addition, pleasant pepper notes are still perceptible.
    • Taste
      The taste is very soft and slightly creamy with traces of malt and oak with a slight sweetness.
    • Finish
      The finish is discreet (in the good sense) and medium in length.

  6. hartist scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A whisky disturbing by its bittersweet side infrequent. To be reserved for curious and / or epicurean minds.
    • Nose
      Gourmand, fragrant, quite fresh. A nice bouquet of malted scents (bread, brioche, pastry), fruity (apples, ripe bananas), spicy (vanilla), honey, citrus (yuzus) and floral (violet, geranium).
    • Taste
      Mouth rather sweet and warm. Disturbingly, it starts with a sort of austere astringency which, paradoxically, is at the same time very fruity but also a little waxy, then tinged with more grassy notes (dried and dusty hay), a little earthy (a sort of humus discreetly aniseed).
    • Finish
      Moderately long, on a dark "fat" both sweet and spicy, with a surprising touch of bitter smoke.

  7. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Malt alert. fruit alert, citrus alert - could it be a speysider, yes it is! Sugary sweet apple & rhubarb pie, sugared short crust pastry with a crumble top and fruit coulis [rather than custard] drizzled over. Quite a dry dessert this with a sweet lemonade joining the equally sweet, cereal mash.
    T: Relaxed entrance and softening even more before the spirit picks up pace - providing plenty of sharp tannins and erring on bitter/sour but coming more cereal sweet into the finish. Theres a good mash presence, in balance with the spirit>cask although i wouldn’t say there was harmony here - on the contrary, its fairly clumsy throughout,
    F: Sour=sweet fruit tannins, spirity maltiness, milk chocolate and splintered, fresh, dark oak conclude.
    C: Everything’s in place but its not working together as much as id like, very much like the majority of [restaurant] apple pies. I like the mash/grain qualities but the spirit is a tad too shouty along with the muddle in the middle for me to get enthusiastic.

    Scores a C+

  10. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Again a very fruity Caperdonich from a more recent vintage than 1972.
    • Nose
      Clean and light. Juicy fruity sweetness. Melon and pear. Grapes. Also flowery notes of violet and freesias. Vanilla and honey.
    • Taste
      Toasted oak. Custard powder. Coconuts. Slightly perfumy. Quite waxy and creamy by the way. Aniseed. Shortbread.
    • Finish
      Medium long. A little pepper. Peel-zest. Liquorice

    • Nose
      malty, honey, fruity - apple, vanilla and grass
    • Taste
      malty - cereals, vanilla, some fruits and honey
    • Finish
      light spices, vanilla and floral

  12. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    An very natural profile with malty notes such as straw and hay. Furthermore banana, honey, citrus, vanilla sugar, yellow raisin, a slight whiff of smoke and a faint saltiness of cooked vegetables. Quite some Lowland-ish notes in there for a Speysider.
