Nose
Faint peat-smoke fragrance. Flowery. Greengage fruitiness. Custard.
Palate
Lively, very sweet, fresh marshmallow, crystallised fruit.
Finish
Light, dryish, tangerine-like, refreshing.
Comment
For teatime – more fun than Darjeeling.

Jim Murray

75
Nose
Trademark malty, grassy simplicity, with an extra dollop of vanilla oakiness for depth.
Palate
Sweet and spicy with a biscuity, doughy firmness.
Finish
Sweet finale, lacking complexity. Demerara sweetness wins through.
Comment
A very pleasant dram which shows Cardhu in its usual ultra-genteel light. Hardly complex, but a delightful dram from first to last.
