Cardhu comes from one of the oldest of the Speyside distilleries, which have nestled in foothills near the River Spey for 200 years. Members of the Cardhu whisky family are lively in character and surprise with every sip.
The history of Cardhu’s rise to fame is to a large part told in the story of two determined women: Helen Cumming, who founded the distillery with her husband in 1811, can fairly be called the first ‘woman of whisky’, and her daughter-in-law, Elizabeth, became known as the ‘Queen of the Whisky Trade’.
Quietly assured and extra-mature, this is a whisky that opens slowly with real finesse to reveal an exquisite structure appealing to the connoisseur: rich in body, yet still full of delicate Cardhu character. It’s pleasantly sweet with rich fruit and chocolate tastes and complex aromas of pears, plums, currant and a hint of pineapple. The flavours of this single malt are best experienced by adding a single teaspoon of water, which acts to release them.
This 18 year-old was awarded Best Speyside Single Malt 2016 at the World Whisky Awards. The exquisite structure of this malt makes it the ideal gift for the connoisseur.
