Cardhu 14 Year Old
 55.0%   |    70cl

Smooth & generous, a small batch double matured for two years in Amontillado sherry-seasoned hogshead. Cardhu is the queen of Speyside malts, its generous spirit is as well matched to that of hard-working founder, Helen Cumming, as it is to that of the busy bees that pollinate the hillside heather through the long days of the summer.

Information

Distillery: Cardhu

Age: 14 years old

Strength: 55.0%

Region: Speyside

Appearance

Deep gold with copper lights. Good beading.

Nose

A mild nose-feel, dry, soft and gentle, with a richly fruity initial aroma; orchard pears, peaches and cherries in syrup, a trace of banana. As it opens the nose becomes fragrant and floral, with perhaps a hint of lily of the valley, and a suggestion of vanilla cream. A drop of water closes it down somewhat, but brings out more sugary fruitiness.

Palate

At natural strength, smoothly creamy in texture, while the fruity taste is immediately sugar-sweet, as with soft fudge. There’s a trace of perfume in mid-palate then hot and spicy notes build towards the finish. Drying overall. With water sweetness is again the first impression, while a trace of salt heralds the return of the spiciness in the development.

Finish

Spicy, with a lingering, embracing warmth. With water, smoother but still spicy, with a pleasant dryness lingering on the tongue.
