What's in a name? Caperdonich 30 Years Old 1982 (cask 8778) - Directors' Cut (Douglas Laing) whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Caperdonich 30 Years Old 1982 (cask 8778) - Directors' Cut (Douglas Laing) whiskey, rather than 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.
Was this matured in a sherry cask? The color is a lot darker than other Caperdonichs I have seen or tasted.

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
