Country of Origin: United Kingdom
Region of Origin: Speyside
Whisky Style: Full Bodied & Smoky
Alcohol by Volume: 40%
Tasting Notes - Nose: At full strength, heady, nose prickle, pear drops and tightly integrated heather, resin and sweet honey-nut notes. Enticing. Intriguing. With a little water, still harmonious but less pronounced, allowing some malt cereal, soft, spicy wood, moorland and faint traces of wood-smoke to appear.
Tasting Notes - Palate: Well balanced, smooth mouthfeel; short punch, sweet and fresh, then a pronounced drying effect. Moorish. Enjoyable at any time, with little or no water.
Tasting Notes - Finish: Lingering sweet smoke in the attractive, drying aftertaste.
How to Enjoy Best: The smooth, honeyed flavours of a 12 Year Old Cardhu shine best when served neat or over ice.
