We’re into the home-stretch of the 2018 Boutique-y Whisky Advent calendar and it seems like the Boutique-y chaps have back-loaded many of the more ‘desirable’ (read expensive) drams from this year’s edition into the last few days. Door number 20 delivers one such whisky in the form of Caperdonich 22 year old Batch 5. Caperdonich was one of most recently additions to Scotland’s lost distillery list, closing in 2002, only a year after being purchased by Pernod Ricard. Whilst in operation, few paid much heed to the Rothes-based distillery, but over the last 16 years, Caperdonich’s desirability has greatly increased.
