Spirity nose with sweet apple blossom and heathery aromas, well-balanced palate with good viscosity. Warming with a dryish finish.
Cardhu is a Classic Malt of Scotland.
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.
John and Helen Cumming began producing malt whisky using a single illicit still at their Cardhu Farm in 1811. Cardhu Distillery was officially established at Cardhu farm in 1824 and was equipped with two small stills. Output was quite small until a new purpose built distillery was constructed just up the road and equipped with four stills. Cardhu Distillery is a malt whisky distillery situated in Scotland’s Speyside whisky region and a contributor to Diagio’s Johnnie Walker blended scotch. Visitors are welcomed at the Cardhu Distillery visitor centre where distillery tours are available and the distillery is a participant in the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival.
