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

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.

Excellent choice

I'm always a bit surprised by a certain downrating trend for this smooth and tasty single malt (of course, please keep doing it so that I and other non-biased may continue enjoying it at around 30€ a bottle, when it could easily cost much more). The 4 stars reflect only the fact that it obviously isn't some 600€ whisky. But it's an excellent choice at 1/20 of that unnatainable price.

Pick something else.

Having read the reviews, I picked one up expecting a not tragic experience.
The first glass would have earned this one 4 stars, but eventually, quality degraded - I discovered a lot of.. artificial? (in perception) taste, which just didn't make a lot of sense. I would not recommend, and will not buy again.

Lovely clsssic whisky

Had Cardhu before but possibly not the gold. Very enjoyable, a real change from an English one I had. This whisky I find soft, slightly sweet, light and easy on the palate

Much better out there do half the price

Bland boring disappointing tipple. Poured my glass away down the sink rather than drink it.

Pleasant sipper and good value.

A smooth whisky, aroma is honey and dried fruits with a hint of smoke. A little less taste than I'd expect from the aroma but pleasant enough,

Buy something else.

Awful! Worst single malt I've ever tasted apart from a horrible clear manx whiskey I tried 20 years ago.y
