Caperdonich Peated 21 Years Old 70cl 48°
This Caperdonich expression stands out for its complexity, with varying notes of peat as the tasting progresses, accompanied by notes of cedar and citrus.
It results from 21 years of ageing in American oak barrels, without cold filtration, and perfectly complements the Peated range of the Secret Speyside collection.
Located in the town of Rothes, in the Speyside region, the Scottish Caperdonich distillery has remained secret throughout its existence, creating peaty or not expressions in Small Batch and some of which were used to compose Blends of Chivas Regal.
Founded in 1898 by the founders of Glen Grant, the distillery that lined the banks of Spey no longer exists. With a first closure 5 years after its launch, it reopened in 1965 with 2 new stills and a greater production capacity, which allowed it to make its place on the market. It closed definitively in 2002, before being dismantled brick by brick in 2011.
Today, we can find what remains of this legendary distillery through the Peated and Unpeated Caperdonich ranges of the Secret Speyside collection, which highlights the rarest expressions of the region.
