(70cl, 40%)

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Dried apricots and pineapple. Thick waves of caramel and honey'd barley. The "old oak" makes a spicy appearance later on.

Palate: Plenty of cereal and barley at its centre, surrounded by home-made fudge, raisins, citrus zest and a good chunk of dark chocolate. Cinnamon and ginger pop up in the mid-palate.

Finish: Long and intense with spice.

Overall: A pleasing step-up from the Cardhu 12 Year Old.

The best whiskey I've tasted (so far).
If you do not like smokey whiskey, this is the best.
But they are not to make it anymore, WHY ?
I would by crates of it if i could, now i have to keep the 2 bottles i have left as a reminder of the best.

Among the best and most balanced I have tasted in 30 years.
Sampled scotches at 2 other noted distilleries then tasted 6 of Cardhu's best. Special reserve cask Cs/cR.13.15 was noy being sampled as the word got out and they were running low. Tried it up against their 18 year old and Gold reserve and it stood head and shoulddrs above the rest. GET IT BEFORE ITS GONE. One of the best examples of Cardhu's zubtle honeys and pear on the nose. Treads on the tongue like agels feets and fills the mouth. Great balance and presence a the way down. Among the best I have ever tasted. Long but su tle finish. Others on the tour had the same experience and 7 were snapped up that day. The ratively inexpensive cost makes it an even more surprising delight.

Boring booze for amateurs
Got a bottle for 30EUR from Amazon. My [high] expectations were not fulfilled at all as the taste is just too bland. Finish is as good as absent. Perhaps something went wrong with my particular bottle/batch etc. but if this dram 7s advertised as a step up from the 12yo I don't even want to imagine how the latter one tastes. Otherwise it is easy to drink aka and therefore OK for complete beginners that would be deterred by a trace of peat or any other stronger flavour
