A much-loved single malt, Cardhu is an easy-going, charming Speysider. This is has been aged for longer than the regular 12 year old expression, and the extra three years combine the distillery's characteristic orchard fruit, barley sugar malt and cake spices with richer tropical fruit and vanilla notes.Tasting Notes (1)
- Milk Chocolate
Deep old gold.
Slow to give of its secrets, with mere hints of a fruity richness and spicy complexity to come. A swirl of the glass releases enticing, clean vanilla notes and tropical fruit. Soon, fruits are dried (light fruit cake with flake almonds). Adding water brings out typical Speyside character, and makes the nose slightly more acidic. Late on, at last, greater depth and complexity: sweet, spicy and rich, finishing with dense toffee and toasted coconut.
Light to medium.
Slow to venture forth and quite viscous straight. Cooling, then peppery and lightly charred. Growing richer, still sweet, but now with toffee and chocolate; burnt sugar on a Crème Brûlée. With water, less viscous and sweeter with almost no acidity; very pleasant and easy to drink.
Smooth, light and slightly drying, with attractive bitter chocolate notes. Not over long, with a hint of faint smoke at the end.

I picked up the Cardhu 15 this afternoon from my office. Will try it tomorrow. I can't wait.
Very rich, sweet even, with a beautiful color and pleasant smell of caramel with simple floral notes. The additional three years make it an expression far superior to the younger expressions.
My husband having tried this whisky on holiday and liked it very much! I decided to get him a bottle for his 60th Birthday. He was well chuffed.
Excellent, so smooth
Excellent recommendation for my first bottle. I went in for advice and took the recommendation given by the Covent Garden shop and it was spot on what I was looking for. A warm and soft intro into the world of whisky and cheaper than the whisky shop when I checked around afterwards.
