Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1992 BR

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points

  1. DarrenHJA scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A very well balanced Caperdonich. The flavours flow smoothly from nose to plate and to finish. There isn't a hint of anything that doesn't mix with the rest.

    Only thing I would dislike is the dried up mangosteen like flavour that lingers at the end.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Ooooh a fresh start with plenty of sugar and nutty fragrances, slightly of sugarcane juices and a citrus bomb.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Tastes just like mulled wine except with less tannins and fermented flavour. Almonds, butter, cheese, Mandarin orange and garlic butter fill the plate.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium damp finishing with plenty of pan reduced sugar and a mix of nuts. A combination of nougat and honey butter dipped in milky goodness

    Caperdonich 1992 Berry Bros & Rudd Single malt Whisky is a dying breed unfortunately. a genius of Berry Bros & Rudd, as it should be: straight into the bottle with no coloring or chilled filtering with all necessary info on the label. Honest whisky from a respected independent bottler. Capperdonich will unfortunately never produce single malt whisky and actually lives a little bit further as Belgian Owl has seen Etienne de Still come over to Belgium. Capperdonich used to be primarily a component to improve other whiskys. Fortunately, there were independent bottlers who managed to buy some barrels to sell them as single malt. the result is genius. There is simply no bad bottling of Caperdonich! Country: Scotland

    Caperdonich 21 yo 1992/2014 (46%, Berry Bros & Rudd, cask #121123) Four stars Colour: white wine. Nose: oh lovely! Some fresh marzipan at first nosing, a little pine liqueur, certainly a lot of gingerbread and spicy ‘Christstolle’ (Christmas cake), caraway aplenty, muscovado sugar… This isn’t heavy at all, and yet it’s very Christmassy. I know, we’re extremely late, apologies. Stone fruits. Mouth: less unusual, less extravagant, more ‘straightly fruity’, with ripe cherries, ripe apples, pears, gooseberries, all that topped with barley syrup and once again some cloves and caraway. Mulled whisky or something? Finish: long, fresh, fruity and spicy. Of course it’s nothing like the deadly Fireball whisky liqueur, but it does bear some kinds of similarities. Should I apologise again? Comments: highly drinkable Caperdonich. These sweet spices work very well and the strength is perfect. SGP:551 - 87 points.
