Caperdonich 17yr Burns Malt (The Whisky Barrel) Review

Caperdonich 17 Year Old Burns Malt Part of a series of six new Burns Malt single cask single malt releases from The Whisky Barrel this is the Caperdonich 17yr Burns Malt.

Tasting Notes & Details


the nose on this starts off really quite prickly on the nose, it comes across more alcoholic that it is, there's touches of lemongrass and crunchy green apples with a slight menthol note and a very light caramel note. A little water opens this up and adds floral gums and pineapple juice


the palate on this is really spikey and prickly, a little water opens it up and tames it down and the lemongrass, floral gums and pineapple juice come out,


really prickly straight but eases off lovely with a few drops of water and becomes an easy drinking dram.
