Cardhu 12 Year
Cardhu // Speyside, Scotland
You may not have heard of Cardhu, but you've probably tasted it. It's a prime component of nearly all Johnnie Walker blended whisky. Europe, particularly Spain, had quite a taste for the single malt bottling. It was so popular in fact that they changed it to a blended malt to keep up with demand. This did not go over so well and Cardhu righted that wrong back in 2005.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"Nosing this whisky you find floral honey notes and crushed cereal flakes. There is a fair amount of bright Meyer lemon peel and breakfast tea as you taste the whisky. The texture is soft and satisfying. Come tea (or tee) time, this is a fine choice indeed."
