    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.

    Pleasing abrupt fore-taste, smooth transition into delicate apple notes with a touch of lemon drizzle cake. A lovely whiskey.

    Thanks Kas - I was beginning to think I was the only one to see through the hype - inoffensive & pleasant enough, but much more interesting whiskies available for the money & much cheaper booze around if that's all you care about.

    Not a patch on the 12 year old. Question why don't you say how old it is ?

    Overwhelming smell of alcohol spirit, this needs to sit in the glass or exposed to the air long before drinking. Faint smell of apples and on drinking a thick cod oily taste not what I expected. Dalmore 12 far better as an example for your money. My opinion only!

    Smooth yet warming, full-bodied and slightly viscous, with lingering heat and aftertaste. Balanced by little subtle sub-flavours that change with the aftertaste. Very drinkable and no harshness. For those wanting peat-free whiskies, it's defo one to try, especially with a drop of ice.

    Erm... Sorry, but the emperor has no clothes. It's sweet alright but it has very little aftertaste. Not a bad whisky - for a brandy or a rum.

    Smooth, very easy to drink and gentle enough to enjoy neat (I still add a splash of water) Deep honey flavours and a lovely aftertaste of toffee. A beautiful dram...

    Dark colour, probably slightly coloured. Sweet nose, green apple. Neutral pallet, very easy drinking. Surprisingly nice long finish with slight apple coming back. Descent value for money.

    Working my way through the Cardhus - a fine family and on first opening, Gold Reserve has the most appealing nose of all. Shaping up to have the best taste of all too - will know for sure when this bottle has hit the bin later tonight.
