    Caperdonich
    36 yo 1972/2009 (55.6%, Duncan Taylor,
    Rare Auld, cask #7421) Colour: full gold.
    Nose: this is superb! Magnificent
    notes of dried apricot, figs, prunes
    and dates combined with notes of mocha,
    nougat and cream puff. Maybe a tad
    decadent? I’m joking…
    With water: some rather superb farmy/vegetal
    notes arise and the fruitiness gets
    even bigger. High-end coffee, soft
    spices, aromatic woods, ‘arranged’
    rum… Wonderful! Mouth (neat):
    wonderful, punchy, rich, nervous,
    with a lot of fruits that sort of
    keep the obvious oakiness at large.
    Lemon sauce, quinces, aniseed cake...
    With water: more of the same, with
    the citrusy part getting bigger. Unexpected
    saltiness (smoked fish?) Finish: long,
    clean, fresh, fruity and spicier now
    (mustard, 4-spices). Comments: well,
    this is no surprise. Most of these
    1972 Caperdonichs from DT’s
    are brilliant, with the one for The
    Nectar (50.3%-126 bts) topping the
    list (WF 93). Highly recommended.
    SGP:542 - 91 points.
