Caperdonich 1995 (Tasting Fellows)

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Caperdonich

 

Caperdonich 1995 Tasting FellowsCaperdonich 17 yo 1995
(52,3%, Tasting Fellows 2012, refill sherry hogshead #95073, 136 btl.)

Nose: youthful with a sweet and sour fruitiness. Gooseberries, apples, unripe plums and lemons. Honeydew melon. Pretty big flowery notes. Hints of vanilla and honey. Faint grassy notes and mint. Mouth: starts sweet and remains very close to the barley. The same kind of fruits, but this time coupled to a peppery heat and a bold zestiness (grapefruit skin, lemon oils). A little aspirin and sour wood as well. Quite some heat but a few drops of water make it slightly rounder. Finish: not very long, with apples alongside grassy and gingery notes.

Another summery dram. Bright fruits and nervous spices, as found in lots of modern drams. Honestly made and simply good. Around € 75, only available from Tasting Fellows directly.

Score: 83/100
