Cardhu's entry in the Diageo Special Releases range looks at a type of wood the producer's rarely use – new oak. This was matured in new oak as well as refill and ex-bourbon American-oak casks for 11 years, layering spicy notes on top of the classic honey and fresh fruit Cardhu character.Tasting Notes (1)
Diageo Special Releases 2020
Crunchy green apples and just-ripe white pears. Toffee notes build, with heather honey and crunchy barley sugar not far behind. Green herbal notes develop, with sage and rosemary alongside fresh lemon peel and candied orange.
Toffee leads – Highland Toffee bars with zesty lemon and singed orange. The toffee becomes Crunchie innards with a drizzle of honey, a pinch of ginger, spicy baked apples and a dusting of cocoa.
Burnt toffee and baked apples fade to expose gravelly minerality, custard and spice.
Nicely balanced, with the classic Cardhu honey character perked up with some zesty fruit, and spiced up, maybe, by the new oak.

One of the nicest whisky’s I’ve tasted! Bought for me as a 40th birthday present I wasn’t expecting such a flavour profile from an 11 yo. I will soon be getting another bottle.
