Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets ambrés.
  • Nose : ample, chaud. Il oscille tout d’abord entre le caramel au beurre salé, la cannelle et le poivre noir. La noix grillée et la crème de marron ajoutent à son caractère crémeux. Empyreumatique (eucalyptus), il évolue sur le cuir, les fruits secs (datte, figue) et les fleurs capiteuses (lys, iris). Il incarne un sherry tout en retenu et centré sur lui-même.
  • Palate : vive, beaucoup plus exotique (mangue, passion), elle est également florale (tilleul, menthe sauvage). Le milieu de bouche revient avec brio vers plus de classicisme. La mangue et les fruits de la passion se sont confits. Le caramel au beurre salé porte d’autres fleurs capiteuses (tubéreuse, lys). La figue et la datte refont une apparition gourmande.
  • Overall : longue, remarquablement équilibrée. Sa fraîcheur balsamique (sapin, épicéa) et saline évoque un xérès amontillado. Elle est ponctuée de fruits secs (amande, raisins), de fruits mûrs (pomme, poire), de cardamome et de réglisse sous diverses formes (en bâton, noire, verte).
The brand

The brand

Founded in 1898, the year of the Pattison brothers scandal, which would see the end of one of the biggest booms in the history of scotch whisky, Caperdonich didn’t really begin producing its own whisky until the mid-1960s when it was bought by the Chivas Brothers. Its founder, the owner of the Glen Grant distillery, named it Glen Grant #2, a name it would keep until 1965. An important component in the Chivas Regal blend, Caperdonich has to this day never released any specific official bottling.


An independent bottler located in the heart of Speyside, Duncan Taylor has in recent years become one of the largest specialists in old single malts and grain whiskies in Scotland, all bottled at cask strength. Originally a private collection, the wealth of its stock of casks has allowed it to launch various blends on the market containing high percentages of malt, including the famous Black Bull blend, which is available as a 12, 30 and 40 year old.
