I have this bottle of Cardhu Single Malt that was given me by United Distillers as part of an Employee give away in about 1994. I have never opened it so I thought I might do so today.
Brand: Cardhu Single Malt Scotch
Age: 12 years old
Color: Honey Yellow
Nose: Vanilla and floral tones - maybe lavander with a little liquorice and light peat.
Taste: Very thin and watery. Very little taste in the mouth with just a little peat and vanilla. It is in the finish that this whiskey explodes.
Finish: Very nice with a honey sweetness with some spice - definitely liquorice, vanilla and light peat.
Notes: This is the malt that is the basis for the Johnny Walker blends. It is cery much superior to any of the blends that I have tasted. It is a very light drink and would go well with a meal or after dinner as a palate cleanser.
