The new single cask range from Douglas Laing got the name Old Particular. I love the packaging with the retro touch. The whisky is probably great too, as it is the successor to the Old Malt Cask. I already tried the Auchentoshan, Auchroisk, Glen Garioch and Bowmore. The first three were geat, the fourth left me in doubt. Today, let us try the 18 Year Old Caperdonich.

The nose starts rather closed before offering hazelnuts and mint. Reminds me a bit of tomato soup or cream cheese at first, before the fruit shows itself. Apples, but little else. Maybe my expectations were too high?

Ha, looks like the party will start on the palate. Punchy and rich on sultanas, blackberry jam and white grapefruit. Some mirabelles. Mint and oak. Vanilla and honey. Muy bien!

The finish is rather short on honey and mint.

Flawless Caperdonich, although I have tried (much) better ones. Around 100 EUR.
