This is Batch 3 of That Boutique-y Whisky Company's Caperdonich, bottled at 45.7% abv with a cult graphic-novel-style label featuring the legendary pipe that supposedly ran between Caperdonich and its sister distillery, Glen Grant. Allegedly the pipe was removed because locals were drilling into it to steal the whisky. Whether this is true or not is debatable, but the whisky from the now closed distillery of Caperdonich is really rather good for sure - as you can see in this limited release from That Boutique-y Whisky Company.
"A quality malt which is not only complex but displays a near perfect weight."- Jim Murray (94 Points)
'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.
120 numbered bottles were produced.
Nose: The nose is heathery initially with a charcoal smokiness seeping through with a hint of nutmeg following. Beyond this there are notes of stewing orchard fruits, butterscotch and soft calve's leather.
Palate: The palate is medium-bodied with sooty charcoal notes, menthol and apple sauce. Then a deeper character of raisins, grapes and home-made rhubarb crumble emerge with a scattering of cinnamon.
Finish: Green grapes, mint and gentle peat smoke form a long and lingering finish that develops a warm spicy character as it progresses.
Overall: A complex dram with warm fruit and spice notes, leading to that classic charcoal smokiness with a hint of menthol. Just stunning.

Caperdonich is popular (because it is such a grand whisky), that is no secret. That Boutique-y Whisky Company knows this, after all this is already their third no age statement release from this lost Speysider.The nose is honeysweet, but pretty dry. It prickles, despite the modest ABV. Applesauce, gooseberries, leather, mint. Then vanilla ice cream, white chocolate with rice (Galak Popri, where is the time?) and butterscotch. Man, this is good!It is oily, almost creamy, and prickly on the palate as well. Spicy! Even somewhat smoky. Woodspice. Peat? The applesauce and mint return first, but are soon joined by baked appels, pears and even some rhubarb. A bit of citer as well. Loads of apples, thus. A slight bitterness along the way. Nice balance.The finish is warm, sweet, spicy and wonderfully long.We think an age statement is important, rightly so. But even without an age statement, fear not for this is a great Caper!
