Naja, wenig los, fürs Alter von 25yr. Man kann den zwar gut trinken, aber im Vergleich mit anderen in dieser Preisklasse, bekommt er von mir keine Medallie. Ein guter Whisky zum nörgeln, dass die Schotten bessere Whiskys, günstiger haben. Diesmal stimmts.

Auf Neudeutsch: Collega, das saufen du gutt is gut für dich machen besoff gut, weil 46 brotsent, starkt wie Du, gut für kozzen dann. Is voll krass Mann. Du das kaufe, dan ich nix mer saufen muss selber.

Wieder probiert November 16, noch mehr enttäuscht davon und auf 82 Pt runter geratet

A light an lofty white-oak expression, and another winner.

The nose can be summed up in terms of fresh sawdust and woodspice, but the palate emerges with a richness expressing pound cake (vanilla), banana, papaya, and cardamon.
So far I like the white oak/bourbon aged expressions of this whisky, but I'm sure there are some sherried surprises in the future. I wonder what a Fino aged version of this would be like...

Way too much fresh oak for my taste. It's almost like a bourbon but less sweet. The tannins in the finish are also very disturbing because of the tobacco taste it leaves behind. Some of the fruity notes are nice but this has nothing to do with the fruity notes in Caperdonig imho.

Nose

très marqué par le vernis, la cire, le miel, l'abricot sec, la mirabelle, très "Caperdo 1972" !

Taste

on retrouve les marqueurs du nez, beaucoup de cire et de vernis, un peu plus de fruits secs, toujours ce côté fruits cuits (prunes, abricot), mais aussi une pointe de coco. Très douce, elle manque d'un peu de punch malheureusement.

Finish

longueur moyenne, un peu d'épices désormais (cannelle, gingembre ?), coco, légèrement boisée.

Comments

Très beau nez et très belle attaque qui rappelle les Caperdo 72, la dilution à 46% fait qu'il manque d'un peu d'amlpeur et de longueur, mais ça reste un très beau whisky. Une distillerie qu'on aimerait croiser plus souvent ! Merci Very Bad day

Sur le bois et les fruits exotiques. 

Boîte à cigares, caramel, fruits exotiques (mangue, banane), dissolvant.
Taste
Punchy (pour 46%). 
On retrouve les notes de bois, de caramel, de fruits exotiques et aussi de la vanille. Doux à souhait.
Finish
Moyenne sur le cuire et le bois (neuf), les fruits ont un peu disparu. Dernière note sur le poivre.

Comments

Un whisky très bien équilibré sur le bois et les fruits exotiques.
