  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A crazy part, an already extreme Caperdonich came in a strange sherry keg I would say, but delicious definitely!
    • Nose
      First of all very surprising for both Caperdonich and a sherry barrel are an extreme Werther's original in the nose, cream and toffe seem the only one, with some air, this suddenly changed into dates, cream, licorice, old leather, almost a little musty after he initially fresh, cherry brandy, a bit of cardamom and moist foliage
    • Taste
      Very fleshy, he immediately stands out, as if one could bite into it, dark malt, cherry, liquorice, dates, tastes much darker than it is, has something of mulled wine, but it is a little lighter, the creamy candies come back, dark honey, oregano and thyme, whole milk chocolate, sweet sugars (rather whiter than brown) and strawberry
    • Finish
      Dark honey, dark malt, brown sugar, orange peel, some grapefruit now and lemon peel, some anise, long

    ’The more you look the more you find’
    N: Nice murky green gold colour - looking like a well aged Caol Ila. We’ve got lots of toffee maltiness straight off the bat, could be sherry and/or bourbon casks. Malt biscuits with a touch of stem ginger, honey & cracked pepper on crumpets, oyster sauce and a heap of brown sugar. Sweetened canned fruits - apricots, cherries and melon lead the fruit brigade and theres a light green tea that rounds off a charming start to my first Caperdonich - a distillery thats been silent since 2002, aptly named ‘Glen Grant 2’ when first established in 1898. The famous 'whisky pipe' which was placed above the street to carry spirit between Caperdonich and Glen Grant was responsible for an odd variety of the so-called 'angels share'. Locals took advantage of the easy access to this famous pipe, drilling holes in it to take spirit for their own. MM
    T: Wow, thats one hell of an alcohol burn - no chance tasting this without water. With plenty added theres a very dry oaky>spirit arrival, rather murky with a nice if slightly uncomfortable/challenging bitter/sour development and plenty of black and white pepper. What sweetness there is, is woody and oaky with a nutty touch [almonds]. I like the cask influence, alot - and the more you look the more you find. After some time this dram really settles in - fantastic oak performance.
    F: Herbal sour with lightly sugared nettle & green tea in the main with a touch of comfrey and rose hip. Dried, soured bitter lemons also join the fray with a touch of aniseed at the death but its the oakiness which has the last word.
    C: Well well, lots to admire here. Not a beginners malt but what a superb whisky this is. At £80 when this first came out [Dec ’13], thats a very good buy indeed.

    Scores a B+

    note by WhiskyCorner:
    Nose: First thing you notice is
    the alcohol burn, but as this tapers off you pick up a lovely sweetness,
    much like a Highland Toffee bar, but one that’s been warmed up in your
    pocket all day, despite the overwhelming, comforting vanilla and
    Demerara sugar, there is a hint of tropical fruits, warm pineapple with
    an undercurrent of warm dates and figs.  There is wonderful aroma of hot
    buttered crumpets with lashings of honey with a little spicy cardamom, a
    slight hint of an autumn dusk, with the lovely musky smell of damp
    leaves.  Tailing off with lingering sweet notes with a touch of sage.
    At odds with the palate, the initial
    taste is a lot drier than I expected, picking up more of an overall
    bitter note, still some sweetness, but with a burnt edge, like the top
    of homemade rice pudding, dark chocolate ensconced cherries, with a hint
    of truffle, and buttery almonds.  Citrus starts to develop, though I
    think more orange than lemon, although this does start to come through
    at the roof of the mouth.  Slight coffee grounds and damp earth.  Just
    as you think you’ve had all the flavour out of it, the buttery vanilla
    comes back in, bringing a fresh wave of sweetness, evocative of warm hay
    and lazy summers. The Finish is long and complex, ever evolving.
    Nose: Fresh oatcakes, large hit of
    alcohol, you can tell it’s cask strength, once that dissipates then a
    whirlwind of citrus encircles your nose, mostly lemon and lime.  Very
    zesty, before going back to the oatcakes.  Fresh cut grass, blowing
    about on a fresh spring day before ending with the sweetness of figs.
    Palate: Wow! Warm honey gliding
    all over your tongue, coating every part of your mouth, spice follows
    with a kick before bursting into popping candy.  The citrus from the
    nose has all but gone and in its place are liquorice laces melting with
    buttered chocolate.  The finish is wonderful, you can feel it travelling
    right down your throat, enticing you to take another sip.
