Cardhu Gold Reserve Bottling Note
Cardhu is the latest Diageo distillery to have a little core range shake up with the launch of a no age statement single malt (or two). Created using hand-picked toasted oak casks, Cardhu Gold Reserve offers something different to the classic 12 year old with a fruitier nose and a dry, warming palate.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Honeyed tinned stone fruits, toffees and a hint of strawberry with red apple and ginger coming through with a little water.
Palate: Fairly dry with biscuity oak and a little cinnamon as well as some development of those toffee and apple notes.
Finish: Gentle oak and (milk chocolate) caramel digestives.
Overall: Described as a "generous" whisky, it's a description that matches both the nose and its general easy-drinking nature.
