Carn Mor Caperdonich Tasting Notes

Posted: February 28, 2017 in Caperdonich, Scotch Whisky A-G

Carn Mor Celebration of the Cask Caperdonich 1992 (24 year old) 58.9%

Bourbon Hogshead/ Dist: 1992 Btl: Feb 2017/ Tasted: Jan 2017

The aromas are edgy, mature and earthy with sub-Cognac-esque dried fruit, vanilla and almost tart citric notes. Lightly balsamic with manure, treacle and edgy, herbal notes.

The palate is earthy and like the nose displays a sub-Cognac-esque oxidised fruit rancio. Quite peppery with both white and black pepper, slightly hard barley and balsamic notes. The finish a bit on the hard and aggressive side, which isn’t a surprise for Caper, but there is a touch of sweet orange which attempts to balance. It finally becomes a little tart and mildly acerbic, but in fairness it’s not too bad for an old Caper.
