Cardhu Amber Rock is finished in American oak ex-bourbon casks, adding notes of vanilla and spice while retaining the brand's trademark soft and easy-drinking style.Tasting Notes (1)
Cardhu Amber Rock
- Milk Chocolate
Vivid, clear amber.
Sweet, full and vibrant, with fresh pear and lychee notes dancing above buttery pastry. Through this rise balancing citrus notes of sweet tangerine, lemon balm or a lively old-fashioned lemonade. These soften in turn into a rich syrupy- smooth maltiness with sweet toffee, honey and barley sugar. There are notes of fragrant vanilla and toasted marshmallow here too, as the palate rounds further to apples and pears in syrup, spiced with clove, then to deeper creamy white chocolate and almonds.
Medium. Coating. Almost fizzes with life.
Sweet and spicy from the start, like a fresh fruit salad with pears and sweet apples in lemon juice finished with a splash of cream from fresh-toasted oak. Then drier, with a balancing tangerine sharpness, before soft, smooth fruit syrup emerges on the subtle mid-palate, beneath which an underlying grassiness and toasty oak intensity is never far away, until smooth marshmallows, creamy milk chocolate and vanilla notes come finally to the fore.
Quite long, spicy-sweet, creamy and comforting; a fizzing bitter cherry-bomb with smooth, drying cocoa, dark chocolate, toasty oak, and finally a lingering note of citrus.

very under rated, certainly waiting quietly in the corner to be discovered as a special from Cardhu's selection. not easily available but the blender has got this one right . sorry I 'm not going into the honey barky sweet toffee vanilla tact - just try it it reminds me of how the old Cardhu tasted - special.
In my opinion this outshines any of the other Cardhu under 21 year whisky and takes me back to the original 20 years plus ago! Wish it was easier to purchase ! Would like Cardhu blender to use Sherry cask ! Feel that would be a uncontested winner for those that enjoy a dram by the fireside!
