Nose
Sweet. Hint of hessian. Very peaty for a Cardhu.
Palate
Sweet. Malty. Toasted marshmallows. Quite mouth-filling.
Finish
Liquorice. Tangerines. Crystallised lemons. Syrup. Late surge of sherbety spiciness.
Comment
They made bigger, peatier whiskies in those days.

Nose
Tangy oranges where grass once grew.
Palate
A surge of spicy oak yields little to the malt.
Finish
Over roasted, almost bitter coffee but then softens for the highlight of the experience as the oak and mild liquorice offers a long, lingering and, at last, balanced, finale.
Comment
I think I remember a 25 year-old Cardhu of far better charm and balance.
