Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1992 DR

- The price of this bottling is steadily going upwards. Not even a year ago this was around €100. But Caperdonich remains one of the few affordable closed distilleries and quite a few independent bottlers released delicious gems of Caperdonich. And this one... is one of them. Should have bought a bottle instead of a sample.
Sweet and sour at the start. Greek baklava pastry with lemon juice. Pistachio and almond cake. Soft fruit candy. Grain biscuits with apple.
With water things get a bit more serious. Hospital aromas. Medicinal notes and a spicy chicken dish with curry and turmeric.
Biscuits with lemon juice. Pomelo citrus fruit. A light and playful whisky with a creamy evolution. Orange sherbet with a dash of Sambuca, an Italian anise-flavoured liquor. Chewable and spicy wood.
Water makes the whisky pleasantly spicy. Maybe even a tad sweeter than neat. Lemon and ginger-cinnamon lemonade.
Finish: A long warm finish with cinnamon.
- Nice Caper, but the
acidity is just a tad too big to make this a fruit bomb, even with water. I
prefer cask 121139 over this. Around 95 EUR, which is quite acceptable, I think.
It has a sweet nose
on Turkish Delight, soft apples, lime and a hint of grain cookies. Rather sweet
and certainly sweeter than cask 121139. More spices to, without any one to
pinpoint. Adding water makes it spicier still, with clear hints of ginger.
It is quite creamy on
the palate, but shows a high acidity. The soft apples turn somewhat sour, like
Granny Smith, while some anise and ginger join the fray. Mostly the latter.
Then some oranges and a hint of almond paste kick in. Diluted it is more fruity,
but also brings the anise more to the fore.
The finish is long,
spicy and warm.
- Actually a pretty decent dram if you add lots - and I mean lots - of water. Without water pretty alcoholic, getting more zesty and especially nutty with water. Lots. LOL. Also nice vanilla. It won't blow you away, but for "genre-fans" pretty nice stuff.
With some drops of water (ca. 46-48% now):
Citrus, very much anis like an anis-bonbon, vanilla, a hint of ginger and orange, energy drink
Very interesting! Lots of vanilla, a bit of anis also in the taste, exotic fruits, but not quite complex for 21 years as I would expect
Fruity, vanilla. a bit sour
