  4. MaltMartin scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    I like this sherried style whiskies a lot. Not to compare with the also excellent Caperdonich's 1972 of Duncan Taylor. A Caperdonich to remember for a long time.
    • Nose
      Wow, what a nose! Lots of burnt wood, heavy sherry and dried fruits. Cinnamon. Also some earthy and even floral notes. I never tasted such a sherried Caperdonich before.
    • Taste
      Massive tannines! Warm mouthfeel. Sweet sherry followed by a lot of hot spices (red peppers). Pure chocolate and dark coffee. A true sherry monster.
    • Finish
      Very long. Sweet and oaky. Some peppermint at the end.

  5. aby scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    In the nose their is a strange `earth` note

    retasted it this weekend, it is excellent, very heavy sherry.

  6. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Ahhh, Caperdonich is already 2 times in my only 6 x 95s, that will probably mean something. Dreamcloth. One of those very rare, where one is sad to drink, because one does not want to miss the aroma the whole week ...
    Meets exactly my taste, just perfect sherry with meaty notes, without much dryness or bitterness.
    • Nose
      Bacon, mango, papaya, maracuja, the brain explodes with all the juicy fleshy aromas, passion fruit, ginger, cinnamon, rumrosins, demerara sugar, cumin, turmeric, saffron, cherries, raspberries, figs, dates, sweet licorice, truffle butter, dark honey , Chestnuts, maple syrup, a dream
    • Taste
      Lots of raisins, light and dark, noble leather, chestnut, blueberry jam, old tobacco box, bacon, mango, papaya, passion fruit, orange and ginger jam, cherry syrup, Demerara sugar, cumin and turmeric again, sweet licorice, truffles, saffron, figs and dates, maple syrup , Parma ham
    • Finish
      Eternal, astringent, oiled, old leather, chestnut liqueur, sweet, moist tobacco, blood orange, pomegranate, candied grapefruit pieces

  7. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A nice, intense whisky. But in my view, no high-flyer. The aromas are quite complex, but difficult to detect, the alcohol is rather poorly integrated and the massive wood influences, especially in the finish you have to like.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Mon Cherry Cherry, sweetness, vanilla, cinnamon. This is followed by Christmas spices, black tea and a slightly dusty note
    • Taste
      86 86
      Sharp starting with cherry and some chocolate. The alcohol is rather poorly integrated and burns.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long finish with strong oak, some bitterness and a hint of smoke.

    Not the typical fruit bomb as known from the Caperdonich's vintage 1972 but for sure an example of an excellent sherried scotch! Intense, fruity, extremely well balanced and dangerously drinkable. Great stuff!
    • Nose
      Intense, toffee, chocolate, sherry wood, dried fruits, dates, figs, prunes, plums and some cherries, sweet notes, whiffs of sherry wood - great!
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, creamy, fruity, cooked oranges, dried fruits, raisins, brown sugar, toffee, milk chocolate, finest sherry wood, good sweetness, som espcies, too, nutmeg, cloves - fantastic!
    • Finish
      Long and warm, more spicy, more zesty, more woody notes but not drying as there is still good sweetness
