Description

Situated high above the river Spey between Knockando and Craigellachie, in Morayshire. Cardhu takes its name from the rocks of the Mannoch Hills where it also takes its water.

The original owner, John Cumming, was a notorious whisky smuggler who had a string of convictions for elicit distilling.

His wife, Helen, was as spirited as her husband and was a master of disguising the distillation process when the excise men came-a-visiting.

Cardhu was also for a time the smallest distillery in Scotland.

 Jim Murray has scored this Cardhu an 83/100 in his 2015 Whisky Bible, describing it as 'what appears to be a small change in wood profile has resulted in a big shift of personality'. 

Tasting Notes

Nose: This 12 year old is a full flavoured single malt whisky with aromas of ripe pears.

Palate: Fragrant fruits balanced and sophisticated on the palate.

Finish: A pleasing sweet smoothness and crisp finish.

Taste Test

What appears to be a small change in the wood profile has resulted in a big shift in personality. What was once a guaranteed malt love-in is now a drier, oakier, fruitier affair. Sadly, though, with more than a touch of something furry.
