Caperdonich - Batch 2 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)

Caperdonich Boutique-y #2 Bottling Note

The Caperdonich distillery was sadly mothballed in 2002, though there is still some whisky available for fantastic bottlings such as this one from ‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’.

This label features a night time scene of misdemeanour. A ‘donich caper if you will… The perpetrators are attempting to drill into the spirit pipe between Caperdonich and its sister distillery, Glen Grant, to get at the liquor-rich goodness within. Cheeky Monkeys. This is Batch 2, with a release of just 45 numbered bottles.

‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ bottles single malts, single grains, bourbons, blended malts and blends from a variety of renowned distilleries. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic-novel-style labels.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: White grape juice gives way to a floral Highland duet of heather and gorse. Underneath runs warming toffee and a touch of peat.

Palate: Wafts of smoke flow over the palate becoming ashy with time. However, the body is comprised of green grapes, green apples and refreshing menthol.

Finish: The peat becomes more charcoal-like with that cleansing menthol from the palate clinging on, finally apple peel holds the fort for the lingering remainder of the finish.

Overall: Batch 1 was stunning but Batch 2 comes through with something that bit more complex and entertaining. Why is this distillery closed?!
