Quietly assured and extra-mature, this is a whisky that opens slowly with real finesse to reveal an exquisite structure appealing to the connoisseur: rich in body, yet still full of delicate Cardhu character. It’s pleasantly sweet with rich fruit and chocolate tastes and complex aromas of pears, plums, currant and a hint of pineapple. The flavours of this single malt are best experienced by adding a single teaspoon of water, which acts to release them. This 18 year-old was awarded Best Speyside Single Malt 2016 at the World Whisky Awards. The exquisite structure of this malt makes it the ideal gift for the connoisseur.
