Cardhu

Cardhu 18 Year Old

700ML / 40.0% ABV.

Description

With a longer ageing, the 18 Year Cardhu has retained its gentle characteristics but has gained richness and complexity.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Not forward, yet attractively ‘natural’ and in time rich, balanced and very complex. Macerated fruits; pears, plums, cherries. Hints of pineapple develop a light, green, gooseberry-like edge. Delicate scents of wild rose, menthol and polished leather rise above a soft base of Christmas cake or buttery pastry. Water opens it all up elegantly, without altering the main themes.

Palate: A smooth and sweet taste, unctuous, yet with light and lively acidity. The soft, delicate, fruity core is cradled by rich, chocolate-edged flavours, the texture, chocolate and fruit combining to evoke a cherry liqueur chocolate truffle. Warming overall, it’s softer with water, when the balance of tastes remains the same, though lighter.

Finish: Exciting and complex, the conclusion is long, smooth, gently drying and rich in cocoa.
