Whisky Reviews for Cardhu 15-year-old

18 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 79.40 points

  1. dRambo scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nose: quite strong oak note with light acidity, slightly dirty, not unpleasant sulfur, honey

    Taste: creamy smooth, gently tingling, elegant sweet wood aromas with vanilla and honey, in the background sherry spice with hints of red fruits, the sweetness and the wood aromas (fresh sawdust with some resin) create an interplay on the palate and make the malt interesting, in the mouth is of Sulfur is no longer felt, the drop is very tasty

    Conclusion: color, only 40% and cool filtered - boring according to paper, but my bottle was very quickly empty - better than its technical data

  2. domani scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The nose is very inviting with a pleasant sweetness accompanied by young fruits. The palate is very mild but is dominated by aromas and oak. The finish is carried by a long drawn bitterness - 07.12.2018 (BlindSample)
    • Nose
      Fresh, fruity nose, light red grape, unripe banana, wild berries, blueberry, maple syrup, marzipan, Christmas stollen, a little vanilla, black pepper tingles in the nose
    • Taste
      more cooling and fresh throughout, soft and mild, the alcohol is barely noticeable, but the tannins can hardly prevail, the oak spice presses forward and is very dominant.
      The whisky becomes soapy and, becoming increasingly viscous, covers the entire mouth
    • Finish
      Long-lasting bitterness, grapefruit, walnut, bitterino, essential woody aroma

  3. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    a simple and simple malt;
    nothing to drink
    • Nose
      thin, nutty (!!), browned apple, floral, malt, later minimal leather (so only if you have an affinity for it you will find it)
    • Taste
      very light on the palate
      Malt becomes stronger, spicy becomes more, red wine, minimal oak, again a trace of leather, later bitter
    • Finish
      short to medium in length
      nutty (so peanut), bitter, dark chocolate comes

  8. peatbogger scored this whisky 79 points Specialist

    Tasted blind, then later compared with the 12yo.

    The two have a very similar profile, but the 15 are surpricingly much richer and fuller for just 3 more years of maturation.
    • Nose
      Typical Speyside nose.

      Fruity on apples and some citrus, vanilla oak, chocolate and malt.
    • Taste
      Quite rich, sweet and malty, caramel and a little oaky bitterness.
    • Finish
      Medium lenght on bittersweet notes.
