CAPERDONICH 24 ans Pedro Ximenez Cask Finish 52,6%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 50cl, Ref: 59565
A limited edition of the Darkness range, this Caperdonich has been matured in small Pedro Ximenez Octave Sherry casks before being bottled at its natural strength. The small capacity of these casks, around 60 litres, increases the influence of the wood on the whisky. Intensely sherried, Darkness impresses with its very sweet, fruity and spicy aromas. An original whisky with a complex and remarkable character.

- 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.
MerchantEstablished in 2013, Maverick Drinks represents a number of producers from the US and Europe, focusing on craft spirits because consumers are increasingly looking for products with provenance, authenticity, and craftsmanship they admire.
The lineEvery bottling in the Darkness range has been finished for over three months in a fresh, first-fill Sherry cask. A cask that's been specially rebuilt at just one tenth the size of a standard (500 litre) butt for a hugely increased surface area to volume ratio, yielding maximum richness and depth. Subtlety, poise and elegance have no place here. Welcome to a new level of intensity, concentration and brute-force.
