Cardhu, Special Cask Reserve, Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Cardhu, Special Cask Reserve, Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A deep-coloured, well balanced malt whisky of exceptional flavour and smoothness, in which all of Cardhu’s luscious ripe fruitiness is balanced by a delicious spicy dryness.

Selected from 'very old oak casks', Cardhu Special Cask Reserve is richer and sweeter than the hugely popular 12 year old and has proved very successful since its release.

"Good feel medium bodied mixing a dominant crisp dried grassy note with orange peel, chocolate and a creamy mid palate. Finish is Spicy with chocolate but dries fairly quickly. Well balanced and worth seeking out"

Tasting Notes:

NOSE : Mature, mellow, very fruity and hay-like. Good mature notes, with spice and increasing orchard and especially tropical fruits: overripe nectarine, water melon, pineapple, mango, peach skin, passion fruit. The interplay between dry and sweet continues: hay, cedar and high cocoa solid chocolate drift away slightly to reveal firm pinewood and nutmeg. Water reveals mature mossy notes and a dry yet fragrant mintiness. Has complexity and intriguing balance.

PALATE : Excellent length. Mouth filling and tongue coating. An immediate stimulating hit of sweet coconut, balanced by drier spices; cinnamon and nutmeg. Quite lively when neat, whilst under this flow soft flavours of caramel and nutty chocolate. Water reveals its great depth and accentuates the chocolate. Soft and generous, with a very light grip and just a hint of peat. Still balanced; lemon, grass, passion fruit and guava playing against vanilla and macadamia nut.
