A longer aged whisky from Cardhu, staying in the cask for 18 years for a richer and more complex flavour. The 18 Year Old retains Cardhu's soft, approachable style, but adds notes of rich fruit, leather and chocolate to the mix.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    Appearance: Burnished copper.

    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.

    Body: Rich and smooth-textured.

    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.

    This is one of the finest malts I have ever tasted. It is really smooth and well worth that little bit extra on the price. Try it you will not be disappointed.
