When we were on Islay recently Matthijs brought along a sample of a heavily peated Caperdonich, 12 years old, for us to taste. Curious one for sure and loved making some notes on it. Thanks Matthijs for sharing! This whisky is at 57% and bottled for the Single Malts of Scotland range.
On the nose there is some fresh lemon and heather with some sweet vanilla mixed with wet mossy peat notes. A note coming to the front that reminds me of juicy pears combined with ginger cake. There is a light floral note with some red apples, bananas, nutmeg and dried ginger.
