Enticing and silky smooth, this is the quintessential Cardhu. Glowing with notes of golden honey and delicate, fruity character.
"Balanced if not hugely complex."Dave Broom 2008, Whisky Magazine, Issue 73
The smooth, honeyed flavours of a 12 Year Old Cardhu shine best when served neat or over ice.
The Hot Toddy has a long history of warming cockles. And the generous nature of Cardhu is the ideal choice, offering sweet apple and heather notes along with a warming, dryish finish.View recipe
For many, the classic Speyside malt whisky.

Soft, pleasing and medium bodied.
Well balanced, smooth mouthfeel; sweet and fresh, then drying.
Lingering sweet smoke in the attractive, drying aftertaste.
Age: 12 years old
Strength: 40% ABV
Place of Origin: Cardow
in brief… Attractive, subtle complexity; elegant and worth knowing.
in a sentence… Spirity nose with sweet apple blossom and heathery aromas, well balanced palate with good viscosity, warming with a drying finish.
At full strength, heady, nose prickle, pear drops and tightly integrated heather, resin and sweet honey-nut notes. Enticing. Intriguing. With a little water, still harmonious but less pronounced, allowing some malt cereal, soft, spicy wood, moorland and faint traces of wood-smoke to appear.
Well balanced, smooth mouthfeel; short punch, sweet and fresh, then a pronounced drying effect. Moorish. Enjoyable at any time, with little or no water.
Quite short. Some lingering sweet smoke in the attractive, drying aftertaste.
