    Caperdonich 36 yo 1972/2008 (54.4%, Duncan Taylor, Rare Auld, cask #7419, 193 bottles)  Colour: full gold. Nose: this one starts a little chalky instead of fully fruity/honeyed, but the troops are soon to arrive, with an almost perfect combination of all things herbal and ‘foresty’ (pine needles and dead leaves, I’d say) and both fresh and dried fruits. I really enjoy this feeling of humus. With water: more of all that. That famous ‘walk in the forest after a heavy shower’. Almost Disneyish. Mouth (neat): how very excellent! Chartreuse and honey, raisins and ripe mangos, maple syrup and Cointreau. Pretty unbeatable. Love the nutmeg in the background. With water: excellent indeed. Perfect balance between the honey/dried fruits and the mint/sap tones. Finish: long, with some dominating oranges this time. Love oranges. Comments: I shall not write about the prices of these bottles when they were coming out – without any silly decanters. No no no. SGP:651 - 91 points.

    Very complex. Just give more time to it. One of the best Speysiders ever tried. Multidimensional, needs attention. I like this a lot.
    • Nose
      Warm and fruity. Honey goes well with ripe fruits and pears. Aged calvados. Traces of mange, lemon and pineapple. Apple peel, liquorice and cedar wood. Orange and apricot jam with clover. With time we get more dried fruits, clover, ginger, cinnamon and pepper.
    • Taste
      Goes well neat. Fruits - ripe apples, pears, oranges. Some hints of tropical fruits goes well with burned caramel, pepper and wood tannins. Tobacco. Really fresh and not overwhelmed, by wood. Dryness goes well with orange jam. With water I get more fruits, lemon and black tea, some banana.
    • Finish
      Warm and spicy. Fruits with wood.
