Caperdonich

Independent Bottlings

Copper Monument


Posted 23 April 2021

Edition No.23 from Whisky Sponge takes us to the demolished distillery of Caperdonich – from where I believe I’ve seen just as many bottles released in the past decade as I have since the site was purchased by Pernod Ricard back in 2001. It seems the desire for the distillate is still growing whilst the remaining stocks last – a bunch of OB releases (including 18 + 25 year old peated expressions) hit the shelves last year. But barring these and occasional dips into the Pernod Distillery Reserve Collection – indy bottlers are and likely will be your main avenue for exploring what was once Glen Grant #2.

A increasingly rare sighting of Caperdonich and a well-aged one at that – 25 years in an refill ex-bourbon barrel. Juicy, Oak & Vanilla profile.

Another month, another welcome release for Caperdonich. 26 years in refill ex-bourbon. Sweet, Fruity & Mellow profile.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company


Posted 21 December 2018

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.
