A compelling and flavourful Cardhu that starts citrus-fresh then smoothly reveals deeper notes of vanilla and creamy chocolate, rounded off by a spicy, sweet finish.
Appearance: Vivid, clear amber.
Nose: Sweet, full and vibrant, with fresh pear and lychee notes dancing above buttery pastry.
Palate: Sweet and spicy from the start, finished with a splash of cream from fresh-toasted oak.
Finish: Quite long, spicy-sweet, creamy and comforting.
Alcohol Content: 40%
Review: “Bright gold. Very citric, sweet candied orange and tangerine marmalade, with a hint of pink grapefruit. As I said, citric. There’s meadow hay and some sherbet as well. Water brings out lucerne grass. The palate is equally delicate and ‘up,’ and quite acidic (no bad thing) with light, nutty chocolate and macadamia nut. When diluted, there’s poached pear and charred oak. The finish is effervescent. Light, easy-going, keenly priced. The rehabilitation of Cardhu continues.” – Dave Broom, 2014, Whisky Advocate Summer 2014, p.120
