Caperdonich - Batch 4 Bottling Note

The fourth batch of Caperdonich single malt Scotch whisky, bottled by 'That Boutique-y Whisky Company', once again features the cheeky bunch who allegedly were pinching whisky under cover of darkness from the pipe that connected the now-closed Caperdonich distillery to the Glen Grant distillery.

Previously, these daredevil rogues weren't too concerned with the security guard, whom only had a torch to ward off whisky thieves. They should be wary this time, however, because the security guard has back-up in the shape of a wolf! Perhaps a reference to how the newly up-and-running Wolfburn distillery is now using the old Caperdonich washbacks or maybe just a warning from That Boutique-y Whisky Company that crime doesn't pay and can really bite you on the backside.

This is a release of 79 bottles.

‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ bottles single malts, single grains, blended malts, blends and bourbons 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: Thick honey, corn, apple, barley and a sprinkle of pepper. With water, it opens up notes of freshly baked cinnamon swirls (complete with raisins) and a hint of smoke.

Palate: Syrupy barley notes, cinnamon spice and fresh honey. Charcoal smoke develops on the mid palate and lasts with herbal mint.

Finish: Slight smokiness paired with hints of sugar cane and apple peels - sweet and lasting.

Overall: Would it be worth risking a race with a wolf to get your hands on some of this? Absolutely! It's a brilliant, complex whisky from a closed distillery, and how fast can a wolf really be, anyway?
