From Diageo’s 2020 Special Releases comes a cracking Cardhu single malt! This 11 year old expression was drawn from refill, new, and ex-bourbon American oak, resulting in a wonderfully honeyed flavour profile. Appropriately, continuing the Rare by Nature theme introduced in the 2019 Special Releases, the label features a rather handsome bee on it!
Nose: An orchard fruit-led delight, with oodles of crisp apple, pear and even some grapes coming through. Over time, the fruit turns a little more tropical, especially juicy pineapple and Galia melon. Rhubarb and custard boiled sweets, pencil shavings and a gentle cinnamon prickle add to the fruit.
Palate: Densely creamy and mouth-filling, with icing sugar adding to the fruit-forward palate. There’s marmalade on toast, raisins and gentle white pepper in there, too.
Finish: Medium-long, with more of that pepper and cinnamon warmth cutting through.
Overall: A classic Speysider, and the perfect late-summer sipper.
