  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Very quaffable but not complex Caperdonich. I do appreciate the fact that the small cask has not overpowered the malt. Just under 400 EUR. No matter how good a whisky is… that is a lot of money. And being far from the best Caperdonich I have tried, I’ll pass.
    • Nose
      Soft nose on white fruit with the emphasis on sweet and sour Granny Smith apples. Icing sugar. Some hay. Some ginger. Very accessible, but in all honesty a little bit too soft to my taste.
    • Taste
      It shows the same sweet and sour traits on the palate with next to the apples also a lot of citrus, something that reminds me of quinine and candied orange peel. Much better – and spicier (again ginger) – than the nose promised. But I would certainly not call this complex. What I do appreciate it a surprisingly smoky touch. Woodsmoke?
    • Finish
      The medium long finish is very spicy, sweet and sour. The smoke is now unmistakable. Where does that come from, I wonder. The cask, right?
