Cardhu is the queen of Speyside malts and this small batch Cardhu has been double matured for two full years in Amontillado sherry- seasoned hogsheads.
Rich aromas of grape, peach and cherry dance together in a nose soon floral with hints of Lily of the Valley. The texture is creamy and smooth, the taste ripe with pear fruit and sweet with the richness of soft fudge. More fragrance in the middle leads to a spicy finish with a pleasant dryness that lingers on the tongue.
The Special Releases collection is a carefully curated annual selection of Diageo’s most precious stocks. It includes rare offerings from famous names, as well as supreme examples of the less well known, and closed, or ‘ghost’, distilleries. Connoisseurs and collectors can purchase the special releases with confidence knowing they come from the distillery of origin.
The Whiskies are natural in colour, hold a natural cask strength and none are not chill-filtered. Nothing is added, nothing removed, the precious liquid presented in each bottle the creation of pure mastery of distillery craft. “One of the biggest and most prestigious annual whisky launches” - The Whisky Exchange
