Caperdonich 21 yo 1994/2015

Caperdonich 21 yo 1994/2015

Extra Old Particular, Douglas Laing
Single malt - Speyside
57.7% ABV

Nose: Lemons, fresh baked bread, vanilla, yoghurt, hints of orange blossom. With water, cookie dough, malted grains, custard, hints of toast. 
Mouthfeel: Medium body, slippery, slightly watery around the edges, tingly. 
Tasting:  Sweet sour. Pears, orange juice, lemons,yoghurt, vanilla, hints of cream. With water, custard, malted grains, apples, more vanilla. 
Finish: Medium. Fresh baked bread, lemons, orange juice. 


Cask ref DL 10769. Warm and vanilla-ey, plenty of fruit, especially citrus. Loads of toasty cereally notes as well. This is magnificent whisky. Caperdonich as I remember it has tangy pineapple notes, but here somehow it has been mellowed into sweet custard. The effects of age, maybe?


I like this a lot.
