Whisky Reviews for Caperdonich 1994
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.52 points
Islay Malt? The third-filled keg seems to have done a great job. Coal, wet ash, subtle peaty fruit aromas, some vanilla and leather. Mineral and phenolic with slightly sweet components, but at the same time also with a sour undertone of whey products.
Creamy, spicy and really fat on the tongue. The Islay barrel can also be recognized here: salt, cayenne pepper, curry, paprika, chilli and peat with coal, leather, cardboard and sweet accents of honey, malt, caramel - the whole thing underlaid with grapefruit notes - very pleasant and interesting!
Long - peaty dry, tart wood with fresh notes and almost completely unsweetened. Add to that coal, wet ash and limes - very straightforward.
N: 89P / G: 91P / F: 89P
- Overripe papayas on the nose has usually a touch of rotten fruits but it went away after some breathing and on the palate the combination of fruity and peaty notes worked quite well even so this is probably the first peated Caperdonich I had - pretty OK overall
Vanilla, peaches, overripe papaya, whiffs of peat and smoke, toffee
Oily, sirupy, good sweetness, fruity, exotic fruits, peat and smoke, little medicinal, spices, pepper, ginger - very good
Long, warm, zesty, becoming more punchy, some orange peels, more vanilla, not drying
- The peat is very good for the distillery character. 89/90.
Peat, camphor, dried fruits, antique leather, herbals, grass, citruses, honey and caramel.
Powerful, oily and creamy. Peat, earth, oak, citruses, pepper, caramel, honey and herbals.
Long, peaty, sweet.
- It’s starts with peated notes, and slightly moves to the sweetness of ripe fruits, pears, chocolate, ripe prune, fresh grass and leather on nose. The palate is peaty, dry and sweet with notes of dust, oak, sweet fruits and dried hay. The finish is long, peated, dusty and spicy with notes of dried hay, sweet fruits and pears. It’s a very tasty whisky with optimum balance of peat and sweetness.
- Whoa, this is not what you expect of a Caperdonich because this tastes and smells like a sherried caol Ia.
Not what I expected but it is full bodied and creamy with masses of peat.Worth buying if you see it.
