Cardhu is known for being an easy-drinking and sweeter style of whisky. Gold Reserve has been aged in toasted oak casks, which has led to notes of toffee apples.

    Insipid, dull and sweet – nothing of note

    I keep sipping and waiting for the bite but it just isn’t there. Very smooth, sweet and inoffensive, I just expected a little more of the promised toffee apple and was left wanting.

    One of the most mellow whiskeys i have tried, you do get notes of honey, and it is very sweet .. all round not a bad whiskey .. well worth a try at its price

    One of the nicest whiskies I’ve enjoyed in quite some time. Very smooth with lovely flavours. I’m away to pour another!

    It's just a bit boring. The bottle looks nice, the story is good but we're here for the taste and this, unfortunately, is a let down.

    Originally had this whisky in 1974 whilst I was in Botswana . It was then Embassy stock only . A truly great whisky.

    Not a massively experienced whiskey taster, although I have sampled quite a range - perhaps only making me an experienced drinker! A very pleasant drink, easy going and a nice sweet taste! Maybe one to share with those who ‘don’t drink whiskey’?

    Very disappointed, no body no depth, no aftertaste, would have been very annoyed if I'd paid full price for this, seems like they've put it in a fancy box with a little story to give it some credibility, will stick to my tried and tasted regulars, Aberlour ,Woodford reserve,Old pultney, Glenmorangie, have tasted Cardhhu before and enjoyed, but this one is a waste of money.

    This is a lovely rounded malt...very smooth and a nice caramel finish...this is for me one of the most enjoyable malts.

    Enjoyable whisky for the price I got it at, not the deepest of flavour notes but won't offend anybody and a decent dram nothing more nothing less

    Surprised by some of the reviews on here, this is a really nice whisky, I don’t know why but I’m getting slight Peaty notes and I am loving it, iv gone from a glenfiddich 12 year old to this tonight and I’m very impressed, more complex then I imagined.

    Nice Malt... Good aftertaste...seems to have attracted diverse opinions...One Star from one...far better than that...Nice i feel to appreciate a range of Malts and Whiskeys as with good beers...

    I'm no whiskey expert by any stretch of the imagination but have tried several around my budget. Cardhu gold reserve is truly smooth and easy to drink and ranks amongst the best that I have tried. Funky tactile bottle too.
