Cardhu Scotch Single Malt 12 Year Old 750ML      
Sku: 17190

Spirity nose with sweet apple blossom and heathery aromas. Well-balanced palate with a warming, dryish finish.

Tasting notes
APPEARANCE Golden honey. NOSE 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. BODY Soft, pleasing, medium. PALATE Palate Well balanced, smooth mouthfeel; short punch, sweet and fresh, then a pronounced drying effect. Enjoyable at any time, with little or no water. FINISH Quite short. Some lingering sweet smoke in the attractive, drying aftertaste.

Rating
 Malt Advocate 85 points (Aug 2013)
The decline in the Spanish market has resulted in Cardhu becoming more widely available, which is A Good Thing as far as I am concerned. This is a grassy malt, which at 12 years also has a heightened citric spray of sweet orange zest and a gingery aspect (it’s great with ginger ale). Intense and vibrant with macadamia and a light heathery note, the palate confounds expectations, having a thick chewiness before the grass zings through, adding lift.
