Gordon & MacPhail 1982 from Caperdonich Distillery
Caperdonich casks still in existence are rare and highly desirable chapters in Scotland’s liquid history and our Private Collection 1982 from Caperdonich Distillery is no different. An exquisite whisky, it provides distinctly sweet notes, with a slight hint of oak on the finish.
Soft and gentle aromas of citrus peel and traces of toffee combine with sweet hay and dried flower notes. Nuances of honeysuckle emerge, balanced by fresh highlights of newly-harvested mint.
Gentle flavours of liquorice root initially. Crisp red apple notes emerge; a drying oak undertone lingers before nutty notes surface. A generous sweetness remains.
Sweet flavours evolve into a refreshing element akin to newly-harvested hops. Mature oak endures on the finish.
