    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 184 bottles from cask no. 4378
    Closed in 2002, and often referred to as Glen Grant no. 2, Caperdonich is still very visible as you pass through Rothes. Its make is becoming increasingly hard to find, and especially welcome when found at this age and quality.A rich gold with light beading, as you would expect from the lower strength.The nose delights with decaying tropical fruits and a little face cream. Quickly moving to over-ripe kiwi fruit, cape gooseberries, tangy oranges and pomegranates. Surrounding the fruits, the lovely old rancio nose that well-matured whisky develops.The taste brings tea tree oil and eucalyptus with a mouth-cooling menthol and a thread of smoke. Then oiliness, some mint and a slight drying on the palate. With just a dash of water, more oiliness, smoked mussels, teak oil in the sunshine, linseed oil on a cricket bat. A long finish, as you would expect, sweet with plenty of licorice.
