Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1972 DT
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.85 points
- A fantastic fruit bomb, a bit less sweet but more complex than other Capers 72. Great!
Intense, honey comb, tropical fruits, pineapples, mango, passion fruit, peaches, overripe apricots - superb as expected!
Punchy, oily, creamy, fresh fruit basket, well balanced with oak wood, good sweetness - excellent!
Hot, burning, spicy, pepper, hints of grapefruits
- 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.
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.
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.
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.
The nose starts extremely fruity with citrus in the
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.
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.
In the wonderfully long and spicy finish, I get more
tangerines and quite a bit of tannins. Perfectly balanced, no kidding!
