Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1977 CA

15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.84 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    [May, 2017]  I had this dram during the Cadenhead 175th Anniversary tasting in Campbeltown.

    The colour is brown sherry and the texture shows some early slow legs and very late fat tears.  The nose is all about a perfectly clean sherry profile of the old school - and not the slightest trace of sulphur or any other flaw.  It arrives in the mouth peppery and fully coating with some slight adstringent moments from tannins (but much lesser than one would expect from almost 40 years in a sherry butt).  The taste is unbelievably layered on all these wonderful sherry flavours again but still the Caperdonich malt shines through with its nice creaminess.  Quite balanced for such a sherry monster, I like that!  The finish is long and sherry-sweet with some stronger chocolatey flavours.  No bitter nor drying notes here, surprisingly.  Some drops of water smoothen the dram and unlock even more aromas (e.g. milk chocolate and marzipan) - I like it that way better (but even neat it was great).  And unlike many other heavily sherried drams it does not get bitter even with more water added.  A superb example of an excellent "old school" sherry maturation...

    A very fine selection by Cadenhead and a worthy anniversary bottling.  The best release in that series (to me)...

  2. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    This is fantastic! Much better than the Caperdonich 1977 35 year old, and that one was already quite good. There is no bitterness here, and it’s very well balanced. A lovely winterdram with lots of layers. And one to enjoy for a long time while sitting by the fire. 
    • Nose
      Yup, a sherry bomb indeed! A mixture of dried fruits and forest fruits, like raisins, blueberries and blackberries. Some wax, a hint of oak and leather. Very restrained at first though. But after giving it a bit more time this gets better. Then ginger bread. Dark chocolate and a tiny hint of citrus.
    • Taste
      A very thick mouthfeel, quite creamy too. Sweet fruits and honey! Strawberries, cherries, blueberries and blacberries again. Ending with tobacco and sweet winter spices; aniseed, ginger, cinnamon, a touch of black pepper and cloves. So very nice! Later dark chocolate too. Quite delicious and maybe even a bit better than the nose.
    • Finish
      LONG! With chocolate and the above mentioned spices.

  6. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Wow, one of the best I ever had. He perfects a distillery, which in itself I feel as one of the 3 best of all time, the age is perfectly matched, everything went together 100%.
    • Nose
      Super greasy broth, hazelnut, chestnut liqueur, deep and dark, sweet licorice, burnt creme brulee, dark honey, nougat everywhere, cream, old leather rubbed in oil, milk chocolate, behind all the Caper fruits, mushy banana and papaya, honeydew melon, pomegranate , Grapefruit, raisins and camphor, lavender and saffron, cardamom and ginger
    • Taste
      Dark honey, toffee, creme brulee, honeydew melon and netted melon, whole baked apple, sweet licorice, milk chocolate, raisins and camphor, lavender, ginger, fennel, licorice and rose water, noble fresh cocoa beans, cinnamon and gingerbread, saffron and papaya, old leather, distributed everywhere
    • Finish
      Remains forever, which is a big part of the rating, all the herbs, the licorice, cocoa and gingerbread, dark, sweet malt and sweet tobacco and much more, overall a little drier with more tannins

  9. whiskycuse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasting Notes: Nose: Clear wood, dry Oloroso, nutty, with plenty of dried fruit, marzipan and wood polish. Among them, over time, more and more acidic fruit, plum jam, figs, grapefruit and lime, plus some soy sauce and maple syrup. All this is of course in an old closet (if you know what I mean ...), paired with leather and tobacco, the alcohol well integrated.
    Mouth: Instantly very elegant, quite dry, as well as in the aroma, great clean wood notes, without becoming bitter. In principle, here are just the impressions, as I had them in the scent, only that the fruit is clearly in the background, and rather the tart, woody tones appear. Nevertheless, the impression of balance arises surprisingly, again with well-integrated alcohol, with time getting drier, with more leather and herbs.
    Finish: Unfortunately a bit emaciated and not too long, but with a pleasant aftertaste.
    Conclusion: Many thanks to Christof, Dirk and Jörg for the sample of this really wonderful whisky, which impresses with its elegant and clean structure. https://whiskycuse.wordpress.com/
