    Interesting dram, typical older style, fruity, powerful, sour. In the nose even a roasted touch. Certainly not just an average daily dram.

      Very fruity, green apples Initially. Later on, more into ripe apples, citrus, some sour edge. But far away also some whiffs of roasted meat even. And an earthy touch, moisty forest. A bit musty, typical older style of malt.

      Thick, powerful, pickering, with a clear sour touch. Lemon, citrus, sour apples. An rathy touch. A little touch of bitterness as well.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Pretty some pickering power still, sweet fruitiness, peach, honey, grapefruits. Some sour notes. Pretty long finish.

    Nose: Peach dipped in honey, a little green apple
    Flavor: The first sip gives a slightly sour bourbon flavor. Some malt. In the background you can see the aromas of green apples with the addition of mint.
    Rating: 87 | 100 Quite long finish with a varnish flavor with a little bit of heather. Whisky did not stand out

    These are the marks for 6 x 1990's Caperdonich H2H.
    Being completely honest the first 4 in this flight were far from great, only the Mos and the Distillery Reserve hit the good category.
    By the 1990's it looks like most of the Caperdonich cask were bourbon and 3rd and 4th fill, I would have expected 2nd fill to be better than this.
    In truth I would stay away from 1990's Caperdonich unless you know that a certain cask is ok.
    I suspected that the first 4 would struggle as the liquid was so light in colour.

    Nose
    Green apple, cream but also a hint of smoked bacon which is a little odd?
    Not a very expressive nose to be honest.
    Palate
    Lots of powerful spice the faintest hint of peat, a few sweet notes and the a little slightly sour green gooseberry note.
    Finish
    Still on the slightly sour side and a little rough, but it goes down nicely and the warm sensation lasts for a quite a time which evens things up for me.

    With a little water:-
    Pleasant enough with more spice and more green fruit, again with a long finish.

    Not bad but not interesting profile wise.

    For me the balance is not quite there
