Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1977 CA

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.00 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A sherry monster as it is, but the base is strong, it protrudes here and there with metal, gray, eventually forming creamy-fruity hues, very pleasant in the end.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, prunes, old furniture, burnt biscuits, kvasnoe wort, raisins, earth notes, creamy confectionery notes - fondant, boiled condensed milk, baklava, fried nuts, dark chocolate, fallen leaves, sulphurous mineral water, putrefactive notes.
    • Taste
      Rich, powerful, oak framed with sweet raisins and prunes, tart bitterness of the bark, metallic acidity, light sulfuric and mineral shades, something oily, industrial.
    • Finish
      Spicy, sweet and sour, prunes, raisins, cappuccinos, nuts, dark chocolate, kvass, mineral-metallic motifs, a little sulfur, burnt match-heads.

  3. Lafroy scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      A lot of sweetness, cherry & chocolate, plums, fruity notes, honey, a little bit of dryness, very close to dark sherry with dark chocolate, leather, and hints of pepper.
    • Taste
      A lot of sweetness, lemon, marzipan, dryness, strong hit of pepper and chili, definitely hot, then sweetness again, dried fruits, a little bit of dryness and something that reminds of French cake.
    • Finish
      Long with light bitterness, dryness, leather - very warming!
