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.

Tasting Notes

"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."
