  1. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    It does not have much of the Caperdonich character, maybe just a little bit in the nose. This is probably due to the sherry influences. But the fact remains that it is a very good whisky. A real sherry bomb!
    • Nose
      A lot of sherry influences, like raisins and plums. Brown sugar. Red fruits. A hint of leather. And oranges too. It’s quite compact and well integrated, but it doesn’t really reveal much.
    • Taste
      Dried fruits, raisins and plums. Blueberries and strawberries. Quite fruity in the beginning but then followed by a punch of spices! Quite a heavy punch actually. Dark chocolate can also be found here, which I like very much. 
    • Finish
      The finish is mid-long with hints of toffee and cacao beans, which makes it slightly bitter. In the background some sweetness of cane sugar.

    [January, 2017]  For decades no one took a note of this distillery, even years after it was closed.  But then all of a sudden the connoisseurs found out how delicious this stuff really is...

    And this bottling is another good example for this:  An almost perfectly matured old-style sherry combined with the creamy, fat Caperdonich malt - simply adorable.  It is not too complex, but who cares?

    n: wonderful old sherry aroma (oloroso?) raisins, grapes, plums, balsamic vinegar.
        not in your face, everything subtle, almost shy. and it needs time!
        then we also get some old tobacco and leather aromas, a little earth,
        camomile infused tea.
    t:  oily mouth feel, a good punch, very sherried, very spicy.
        sultanas and prunes, coffee liquor, allspice and cinnamon.
        a bit of dark chocolate
    f: long, sherried, dry
    89/100
