Cardhu 18 Year Old Reviews
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.

Another run of the mill Cardhu, Malt for people who want "smooth" and nothing more, like depth of flavour or any individual personality. Boring Speyside.
got a 3cl sample to try this one before I buy the large bottle and this drink blew my mind! Such an amzing consistency on the palate and the 18 years really show its balanced complexity.
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.
