Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1972 DT
2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.00 points
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.
