  1. nallacam scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Shows the potential of Cardhu, in contrast to the standard bottlings a real highlight.

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2011]  I found this dram in an advents calendar sampled by MaRa.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  Unfortunately I took no detailed notes.

  3. nulty scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Really beautiful, explosive fruits and a lot of beautiful things around. Tasted blind.
    • Nose
      Very fruity, apples, peaches, pineapple, grapefruit. Delicately woody, a little sap, almonds. Spices, cocoa, some chalk, nutmeg, apple pie. A little earthy. We could feel it for hours, beautiful nose.
    • Taste
      Sublime fruit cocktail, after the nose we share on the same basis. A little mint, ginger, what you need wood. Long and powerful, a hint of mustard. Thick texture.
    • Finish
      Long and sweet. Calva, grass, licorice.

    Very `berryy` and complex. In the finish long and s

  5. Roman scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Ingenious whisky, the best Cardhu ever, on the other hand, the DT must lose even if the is also awesome, this is just more complex than the DT
    • Nose
      very berry, jellies ?, Cardhu aroma very discreet
    • Taste
      Berry cocktail, pure fruit, strong and delicious, a few herbs, very complex, mulled wine!
    • Finish
      medium long, damn tasty

  6. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    This Cardhu has more to offer than just an "easy" fruitiness like some other old Speysiders - it has plenty character and it's still really balanced.
    • Nose
      Starts oily (plain vegetable oil). After a while it evolves to vanilla, hay, gooseberries and yellow apples. Lovely furniture polish. It's not overly sweet, it's warm but there are earthy and mineral qualities to it as well. I even detected tiny hints of medicinal notes. Quite special.
    • Taste
      Mouth-coating and rather unique. Again very oily (lemon balm) but also quite spicy / herbal (aniseed, mint, ginger, pepper) and fruity (grapefruit, oranges, blackberries). Some chocolate notes and toffee. Great complexity, anything but boring.
    • Finish
      Slightly drier and grassier. Still some citrus and cocoa. Quite long.
