Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Cardhu Gold Reserve to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

Cardhu Gold Reserve Bottling Note

Cardhu is the latest Diageo distillery to have a little core range shake up with the launch of a no age statement single malt (or two). Created using hand-picked toasted oak casks, Cardhu Gold Reserve offers something different to the classic 12 year old with a fruitier nose and a dry, warming palate.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Honeyed tinned stone fruits, toffees and a hint of strawberry with red apple and ginger coming through with a little water.

Palate: Fairly dry with biscuity oak and a little cinnamon as well as some development of those toffee and apple notes.

Finish: Gentle oak and (milk chocolate) caramel digestives.

Overall: Described as a "generous" whisky, it's a description that matches both the nose and its general easy-drinking nature.

Cardhu Gold Reserve Reviews

A cracking drink, and not too costly.

One of my favourite drinks, a go to malt for myself.
Smooth with a oak taste, do not be put off by its lack of cask maturity.

Big promise medium delivery

The nose was apples and plums. Smooth taste but the promised depth did not come through.

Has its wherefore..

Tried 40% Cardhu, purchased at €23, 40% King of Scots (Douglas Laing) and a splash of Talisker 10 in a home-brew blend.

If you get it under £30 - a sheer bargain

Very ‘easy’ to drink.
Not a harsh start and a smooth, good finish fitting the name.
Overpriced, yes, if you buy at between £40-£50 but if you can grab it as a bargain under £35 - we’ll worth as a staple drinking evening/after dinner whiskey

Not for me!

Smooth as silk and honey sweet and therefore boring. Nothing to excite the pallette. Wouldn't buy it again. People who like to drink whisky, but don't actually like whisky, will love it.

Very quaffable.

Excellent and very smooth and quaffable. Perhaps lacking a bit in character but a great whisky to share with other(s).

I would recommend this easy to drink malt

A very pleasant and easy to drink malt. I can understand why people that lean towards peaty malts would not like this but personally I found it just about right for my pallet and as it was a present even enjoyed it more

Top treat tipple!

Cannot understand the negative reviews?? Brother treated me for my birthday as I enjoy a fruity, warm whisky or bourbon- and I was delighted. Savoured the various levels of flavour, and will be a regular treat to self, going forward. Warm, no burn, stayed on the palate and did not disappoint. Thank you

Delicious Spicy Apple

Tastes like a spicy apple pie. So easy to drink and really tasty.

Lovely finish, slightly bland start.

The palate is lovely with a nice warm finish. Slight bland/watery beginning but for the most part a lovely drink.
