Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1995 SV

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.95 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A dreamlike Caper, what you can imagine. not always expected by SV, full-bodied and with all the notes that one looks at Caperdonich, vllt. with a bit more oriental notes than usual (spices and intensity).
    • Nose
      Pure dark honey, full, fatty butter, light raisins, nougat, cinnamon, trail mix, chestnut, gummy bears (typical Caper note!), Demerara sugar, milk chocolate, sweet tobacco, baked apple
    • Taste
      Full, rich, camphor, cardamom, sweet tobacco, plums, dates, ginger, gummy bears, the Demerara sugar again, a lot of dark honey and lightly burnt butter, cherries and milk chocolate
    • Finish
      Somewhat spicy-dry with the camphor and cardamom and ginger again, with a hint of malt and pepper, dry nuts and a bit dusty, long

  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Damn, this is certainly one of the best Caperdonich I have tried in recent years. It will, however, set you back some 300 EUR. When is Father’s Day again?
    • Nose
      Delicious but piquant nose with loads of dark and sweet fruity notes. Think raisins, dades and chewing tobacco. But it goes the extra mile with a rum-like touch. Demerara sugar! In the background is some molded wood, dark cherries and milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      The body is creamy and round, very sweet and mildly drying. Some more chewing tobacco, but also plums, dades again and something that reminds me of the Mon Chérie candies. Very good! And despite the high ABV, it is perfectly quaffable.
    • Finish
      Nice, long, spicy finish. What a party!

  3. Bishlouk scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Nose right in the big fat Sherry. Dried fruits, tobacco, molasses. Tingling alcohol, to breathe. Sweet and sweet, sweet and pleasant mouth. A candy. Spicy heat, raisin, caramel, tobacco. The whisky tends to soften in the mouth over time, to become even very wise. Final short and light. Drought, tobacco and caramel dryness. Verdict: Alcohol very well integrated, even a little too wise for 55%. A good classic Sherry whisky, gourmet, balanced. Well done.
