"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.
Heady, with pear drops, heather, resin and sweet honey-nut notes.
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.
