Caperdonich 20 Year Old Artist #10

55.8% abv, 700ml, Single Cask #29488, Sherry Butt Finish, Limited to 251 bottles

Nose:  Subtle combination of citrus fruit (lemon), vanilla, wildflower (dandelion), ripe fruit (pear) and spices (black pepper). Allowed to breathe, it becomes hot (Cayenne pepper), before new fruits (Mirabelle plum, pineapple, banana) enrich the fruity register of the first nose. 
Palate: The lively attack is lemony and fruity (canary melon). On the mid-palate, malted barley provides a marvellously herbaceous transition. The end of the palate is medicinal, vanilla and floral (lily). 
Finish: The full start of the finish is spicy (ginger), exotic (guava), honeyed (acacia) and herbaceous (flax). The end of the palate is mentholated, milky (coconut) and slightly animal (bacon).

Founded in 1897, the Caperdonich distillery was mothballed five years later. After reopening in 1965 under the name Glen Grant no. 2, it was dismantled in 2002 and demolished in 2010. Although produced in very limited quantities, this single malt is extremely well-renowned amongst enthusiasts. After the sensational Caperdonich 1966 Sherry Cask bottled in the late 1990s by Signatory Vintage, and the no-less remarkable From Huntly to Paris 1972 vintage, aged in a bourbon cask and selected by La Maison du Whisky from Duncan Taylor, this version joins the very restricted circle of top Caperdonich whiskies. Absolutely remarkable, it is a leading bottling in our Artist range, which this year celebrates its 10th anniversary.
