Caperdonich 17 Year Old - The Rare Casks / 10cl Sample

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky Abbey Whisky

Launched back in 2012 and quickly selling out, this stunning Caperdonich 17 year old was the 1st release in 'The Rare Casks' series by Abbey Whisky. Like the Ben Nevis, we have very little of these 10cl sample bottles on offer. Caperdonich was mothballed in 2002 then later demolished, so these 10cl offerings are a great way of sampling a little bit of whisky history...

Tasting Notes

The nose on this Caperdonich 17 year old seems quite simple at first with the initial hit of sweet oak and vanilla. Leave it for a few moments and the tropical fruit & sweet peppery notes lift from the glass to the nose getting more complex and developed with every nose. Banana, vanilla & spiced pepper followed by a lingering of sweet pepper chilli & oak at the back of the nose. When tasting, give yourself a good mouthful of this dram, swirl it all around your mouth for the full 17 seconds. Wow, the result, a full coating of creamy, spicy pepper notes all around the mouth, softens off gradually showing its sweet oak, vanilla flavours once again. The finish leaves your mouth with warm, spicy notes with sweeter flavours to follow. A dram that leaves you wanting for more.

Nose: Poured my dram then got interupted by a text, when replying to it i noticed a sweet nutmeg and cinnamon smell eminating from the glass, when i nosed properly this was added to with some more spices, mainly chinese cooking spices. the longer i nose it the more fresh fruits i'm getting some christmasy satsumas, some fresh pineapple and banana all appearing nicely. Taste: A very pleasant mouthfeel with creamy caramel and fruits intersperced with notes of winter spices and pepper. Doesnt feel hugely firey given the alcohol content. Finish: Warm and wintery, could see this being very nice with a roaring open fire and good company. What a stunning dram this is, subtle but amazing nose and brilliantly complex flavours, i could genuinely sit and sip this for hours on end.
