Cardhu - 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Light gold in color, this 12 year old single malt has a floral nose with nice cherry and nectarine notes. These fruity floral notes are backed up with an undertone of light brown sugar, chocolate and earthy clay. The entry is very smooth and elegant and it immediately opens with a burst of flavor that includes cinnamon, black cherry, maple and the slightest amount of smoky peat funk. The Cardhu finishes up nicely as it holds on to those smoky, peaty notes. There’s some nice complexity here with light and sweet top notes and more savory mid and undertones.
