Pernod Ricard, Caperdonich 21 year old

RRP £250

Caperdonich is a closed distillery. Founded in 1898, it stopped producing in 1902 and didn’t start again until 1965. It closed its doors once more in 2002 and was finally demolished in 2010. This expression has a sweet, fruity nose and is weighty on the palate. Sweet peat comes through but doesn’t smother the flavours of apricot and waxy honey. There’s a subtle powdery note and right at the end a hit of tropical fruit.
