Cardhu 12 Year Old Single Speyside Malt Whisky
70cl/40% From the speyside region this is Cardhu aged for 12 years. 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: 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.
