Tasting Note:

A deliciously unusual expression, this Cardhu comes from a trial batch double matured for much longer than is the norm in ex-Amontillado sherry seasoned hogsheads; this wraps the expected Cardhu gentleness in a fine cloak of richer cloth.

Appearance: Deep gold with copper lights. Good beading.

Nose: A mild nose-feel, dry, soft and gentle, with a richly fruity initial aroma; orchard pears, peaches and cherries in syrup, a trace of banana. As it opens the nose becomes fragrant and floral, with perhaps a hint of lily of the valley, and a suggestion of vanilla cream. A drop of water closes it down somewhat, but brings out more sugary fruitiness.

Body: Medium.

Palate: At natural strength, smoothly creamy in texture, while the fruity taste is immediately sugar-sweet, as with soft fudge. There’s a trace of perfume in mid-palate then hot and spicy notes build towards the finish. Drying overall. With water sweetness is again the first impression, while a trace of salt heralds the return of the spiciness in the development.

Finish: Spicy, with a lingering, embracing warmth. With water, smoother but still spicy, with a pleasant dryness lingering on the tongue.
