  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Meh, one of the two worst Caper so far at over 20, the nose is very strange in the beginning and the taste brings a lot out, but everything does not give 100% a total picture.
    • Nose
      Phew, ok, first real analog cheese, glue, with plenty of time and warmth then comes pear, nettle melon, mint and green apple, avocado, some green notes, also grappa and grapes with kernel
    • Taste
      Grapes, pear, green apple, ginger, anise, white pepper, turmeric, fennel, papaya, avocado, lemon grass, normal grass, some licorice and bitter tannins
    • Finish
      Pear, grapes, mint, light malt and grasses, medium long
