Cardhu

Cardhu 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
Balanced if not hugely complex.

Cardhu Amber Rock
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%

Cardhu Special Cask Reserve
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
7 Well balanced and worth seeking out.

Rare Malts Cardhu 1973 27 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.00%
7 They made bigger, peatier whiskies in those days.

Rare Malts Cardhu 1973, 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 60.50%
7 For teatime – more fun than Darjeeling.
