Single Malt - Scotland - 49.20%
7 They've done their best to improve a poor cask, but it's one note all the way.

Abbey Whisky Caperdonich 17 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.80%
8 My first ‘summer' whisky and it is only March. Here comes the sun.

Cadenhead's Caperdonich 1977, 24 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Heavily sherried. Rich and full-bodied but the distillery character is hidden by the wood. For the sherry fanatic.

Chivas Brothers Caperdonich 16 Years Old, Cask Strength Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.80%
7 Promises more than it delivers. Try it with sweet Turkish coffee or espresso.

Dewar Rattray Caperdonich 1980 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 53.10%
7 A shy little furry woodland creature peeking out, then hiding again.

Duncan Taylor Caperdonich 1969 34 Years Old

7 Quite engaging, but just past its best.

Duncan Taylor Caperdonich 33 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 41.90%
7 A well knitted dram. On the fruit side. More complex than it appears. Oak is well integrated. A pity such a treasure is lost!

Lombard Caperdonich 1968
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
6 Less fruity than I remember. An unusual afterdinner malt.

Murray McDavid Mission II Caperdonich 1968
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 Good structure, but spoiled by bitterness and woodiness.
