  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Member Waykid gave me a 20cl bottle where he had stored the leftovers from his Caperdonich. Now,  after having been open a long time and under a small, not that airtight cork, this one has mellowed a little and as such become just slightly more pleasant than when the bottle was freshly opened, but the dominant bitterness in the palate still spoils it for me.

    Quite the enjoyable whisky from what I suspect is a refill (and not a first-fill) bourbon hogshead. A fruity nose, and a more spice dominated palate.
    • Nose
      Fruit galore! This Caperdonich is a nice fruit basket of green apples, pears, white grapes and a touch of lemon zest and lime juice. Some banana too. Very attractive.
    • Taste
      At first a touch of bitter oak and bitter grapefruit, accompanied by a wave of spices such as black cardamom, vanilla and cloves. What about the fruit, you ask? It's still here, just a little less prominent (a bit of a shame I think). I've already mentioned the grapefruit, but there's some pear and banana too.
    • Finish
      Wood spices and subtle fruits. Fairly long.

  5. Greenkeeper scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    What a pity that there is no further supply from this source of relish. Ordered it right away after a small sip.
    • Nose
      At first, there is a lot of fluid alcohol. But this is no downside, just give the dram enough time and this "kind of fog" is gone, which is quite typical for older cask strength whiskies @ cask strength. Patience will be rewarded with a well balanced composition of sweet tropical fruits, some sour tropical fruits -especially limes, brazilian wax in the womb of my old lady and some hints of that wonderful aroma from the small canary islands bananas.
    • Taste
      Sweet, over-ripe tropical fruits combined with a mineral and earthy touch, a bit like a wet dog, coming in from a long walk in the woods and finally a slight flash of a campfire.
    • Finish
      Somewhat between middle and long. First quite spicy. When the spices fade it comes back one more time with enduring fruits near a small fire and some earthy notes. Delicate.

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Ground coffee, banana, pear. The coffee side fades to release the fruits.
    • Taste
      Pear, citrus fruits. Mouth very powerful, peppery and spicy.
    • Finish
      Long on spicy spices and fruits.
