Insider knowledge: Caperdonich 30 Years Old 1982 (cask 8778) - Directors' Cut (Douglas Laing) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Caperdonich 30 Years Old 1982 (cask 8778) - Directors' Cut (Douglas Laing) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Candied orange peel, mahogany and gentle spice on the nose, followed by cinnamon, nutmeg and a little peat smoke on the palate. The finish is long with hints of cacao and orange peel.
The whisky was matured in a refill butt, so yes, there is some sherry influence in there. Very well spotted! --The Chaps at Master of Malt

Was this matured in a sherry cask? The color is a lot darker than other Caperdonichs I have seen or tasted.
