This is a 20 year expression from Caperdonich that was aged in a bourbon cask and bottled at 55.8% ABV.
Nose: Very floral with heavy spices – heather, dry oak, and lavender.
Palate: Nice heat combined with cinnamon and pepper while remaining quite floral overall with oak and blackberry jam.
Finish: Slightly bitter, oak is dominant with some pepper and earthy notes.
Value for the money: These go for around $130+ which is a fair price for a 20 year expression from a closed distillery.
