Cardhu 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 70cl Giftpack with 2 Glasses
Cardhu comes from one of the oldest of the Speyside distilleries, which have nestled in foothills near the River Spey for 200 years and the Cardhu range is an excellent representation of these Speyside whiskies. Helen Cumming, who founded the distillery with her husband in 1811, can fairly be called the first ‘woman of whisky’. The light character of the 12 year old Cardhu is an excellent starting point for anyone starting on their whisky journey. A beautifully presented gift for loved ones.
Soft, pleasing and medium bodied.
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.
Lingering sweet smoke in the attractive, drying aftertaste.
