And a third Caperdonich 1972. Life’s tough! Fulco, one of the guys from the Usquebaugh Society and a steady co-host of the regional tastings brought me a sample of this one. I didn’t mind at all!
A lot smoother than the G&M one, although the difference in ABV is only 0.5%. Again, the wood spices, with clove and cinnamon. Dried fruits with a bit less emphasis on the raisins. Quite sweet, but not overly so and a hint of pepper.
A very smooth finish. A hint of pepper, slightly drying and some wood dust. Sweet, spicy with some mango. Its a very complex finish and it deserves a lot of attention.
This one falls somewhere in between the Perfect Dram and the G&M Caperdonich. I love all three of them but this one is not as demanding as the first, while being a lot more balanced and complex than the second. Thanks Fulco!
Caperdonich 1972-2010, 37 years old, 56.5%, cask 7414, I guess its sold out by now but it used to be around € 135!
