In the hallowed realms of Scotch whisky, there are expressions that transcend time, and the Caperdonich 22 Years Old from Lady of the Glen is a testament to the artistry and craftsmanship that define the world of single malts. Distilled on the 27th of August 1997 and bottled on the 24th of July 2020, this particular release, housed in Cask 19130, bears witness to over two decades of maturation.
