Cardhu 12 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Sweet and fruity, with aromas of grilled pineapple, honey-soaked pears and fresh melon. Notes of cut grass, hay and ripe mango, too – very appetising.
Palate: Soft, silky mouthfeel, with plenty of pineapple and mango up front, followed by honey, banana and toffee, with some dried-fruit and vanilla richness. Very approachable, but still decent levels of complexity.
Finish: Soft and fruity, with the raisin and honey notes lingering the most.
Appearance: Golden honey.
Nose: At full strength, heady, nose prickle, pear drops and tightly integrated heather, resin and sweet honey-nut notes. Enticing. Intriguing. With a little water, still harmonious but less pronounced, allowing some malt-cereal, soft, spicy wood, moorland and faint traces of wood-smoke to appear.
Body: Soft, pleasing, medium.
Palate: Palate Well balanced, smooth mouthfeel; short punch, sweet and fresh, then a pronounced drying effect. Enjoyable at any time, with little or no water.
Finish: Quite short. Some lingering sweet smoke in the attractive, drying aftertaste.
