Enticing and silky smooth, this is the quintessential Cardhu. Glowing with notes of golden honey and delicate, fruity character.
Best served neat or over ice to bring out the smooth, honeyed flavours.

This is a grassy malt, which at 12 years also has 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 expecations, having a tick chewiness before the grass zings through, adding lift.

An enjoyable whisky which will do well as a summer drink.
Rob Allanson 2008, Whisky Magazine, Issue 73
Very fragrant, with vibrant fruit (nectarine, plum, guava, pineapple, clementine), honeyed vanilla, and subtle macadamia. Fairly light (a pre-dinner or leisurely afternoon malt, perhaps?), but evenly balanced. A gentle introduction to single malts for the blended scotch drinker.

... this one really does the job, it won't offend anyone and actually please everyone.
