Gold Reserve is fruitier and warmer than the classic 12 year old, its initial sweetness is cut by crisp orange zest followed by a subtle mineral dryness. Cardhu Gold Reserve is a great choice as a sweeter aperitif. Beautifully presented in gold luxurious packaging, making the perfect gift for any whisky lover.

Serving Suggestion:
Best served with ice to bring out new fruity flavours.

Region A superb showing from Speyside.
Appearance Rich amber, in sunlight becoming antique gold.
Body Medium to light bodied, fluid and smooth in texture.
Nose Shy and soft at first, and beautifully smooth: fresh, yet also mellow. Tinned fruit salad, with waxy red apple skins.
Palate Bigger flavours and drier than the nose suggests, with its initial sweetness cut by crisp orange zest followed by a subtle mineral dryness.
Finish Tangy hints of menthol with velvety cocoa tannins and a grassy herbal note. Faint hints of almonds and apples follows a light saltiness.

Expert Reviews

Insights from some of the best in the business

Distinct honey on the nose with some clean, firm grain followed by rich malt. Exotic fruit follows with mango and kiwi. Some grassiness and light note of peat way in the background. Big entry into the mouth with immediate wave of ripe malt which brings out some spicy notes and hints of vanilla. All the while there seems to be a little rumble of peat way back in the rear. Soft, satisfying finish., 2015
