    A fantastic fruit bomb, a bit less sweet but more complex than other Capers 72. Great!
    • Nose
      Intense, honey comb, tropical fruits, pineapples, mango, passion fruit, peaches, overripe apricots - superb as expected!
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, creamy, fresh fruit basket, well balanced with oak wood, good sweetness - excellent!
    • Finish
      Hot, burning, spicy, pepper, hints of grapefruits

  3. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Smells plum with full nose, perfectly integrated alcohol, tagada strawberry tip, honey, wax.

    In the mouth also the alcohol is very well integrated, creamy texture, always plum and quite waxy.
    Slight bitterness in a warming finish of the correct length and mostly dominated by a peppery plum, with some light tannins.

    Very flattering and really easy to drink, a little monolithic to quibble.

    A speyside of very good quality, reassuring, old-school. A taste for dad. Very stylish.
    • Nose
      Immediately, the plum, or something more cooked: the prune. A lot of power well mixed. Honey, vanilla, banana. We smell sugar and syrupy. The encaustic and the fat.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly, the mouth is distinct from the nose. We find power, wealth. But there is a little burnt wood, tar, a hint of smoke, and even peat. Pepper appears. And salt. And also born an old-school bitterness.
    • Finish
      Rather long. We stay a little on pepper.

    Boy, this really knocks my socks off. This is Enjoyment
    with capital E! I daresay this is the best Caper I have had so far.
    • Nose
      The nose starts extremely fruity with citrus in the
      lead. Oranges,
      tangerines, grapefruit, lime. Fresh as lemonade, actually. The second whiff
      brings banana and pineapple to the party. Strawberries! A nice fruit salad.
      After a few moments it becomes somewhat drying and mildly floral. At the third
      whiff, I even get some struck matches and apple cake. Hints of tea. Very complex.
    • Taste
      It is nicely creamy and silky soft. Fruitbomb!
      Absolutely no bite yet well seasoned. White pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon.
      Candied ginger too. It becomes a little bitter as if
      from over infused tea, but never drying. Oranges and tangerines go back and forth. Some smoke. Grand.
    • Finish
      In the wonderfully long and spicy finish, I get more
      tangerines and quite a bit of tannins. Perfectly balanced, no kidding!
