A well-balanced, gentle single malt from Speyside. Cardhu 12 is a very well put together malt. With clean, crisp oak and sweet malt evoking flavours of honeyed flapjacks and home-made caramel.
Nose: Good body, decent sweetness, richness. Streaks of smoke, apple peels, bruised pears.
Palate: Smooth, rounded, gentle sweetness, soft peat. A little smoke whispers sweet nothings.
Finish: Long, dry smoke, malty touch of peat.
