Cardhu Amber Rock
Cardhu // Speyside, Scotland
Released in early 2014, Amber Rock is a no-age statement bottling that has been double matured in ex-American bourbon barrels. This is available for sale in most European countries.
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.
"There's kind of a dark rummy quality to this Scotch. Caramel, coffee, maybe a tinge of cherry and is that banana? The palate reflects more of the bourbon barrels it's aged in, but it is the finish where the Scotch barley notes finally make their appearance. The finish is short and sweet making this a cheap and cheerful dram."
