CARDHU 14 ans 55%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 57069

Ce petit lot de Cardhu a bénéficié d’une seconde maturation pendant deux longues années en fût de Sherry Amontillado, ce qui a permis à la richesse des fûts d’envelopper progressivement l’élégant malt Cardhu d’un voile d’une douceur exquise. Cardhu est le malt roi du Speyside, avec un profil généreux, fidèle au caractère de sa fondatrice Helen Cumming, dont le travail n’est pas sans rappeler celui des abeilles qui pollinisent la bruyère des collines alentours durant les longs jours d’été. A leur image, le travail d’Helen Cumming a influencé toute la région et donné naissance au style Speyisde il y a 200 ans.

Tasting note

  • Nose : Arômes riches de raisin, pêche et cerise qi s’ouvrent sur des notes florales et notamment des accents de muguet
  • Palate : Texture onctueuse ; presque crémeuse. Des notes de poire appariassent au palais tandis que des arômes riches de caramel fondant dévoilent une facette sucrée.
  • Overall : Epicée, agréablement sèche, qui s’attarde sur la langue.

The brand

The Cardhu distillery of today owes its existence to one Elizabeth Cumming. In 1872 she built a new distillery called Cardow, which she then expanded in 1887 and sold to John Walker and Sons Ltd in 1893. Production at the distillery increased and in 1980 Cardow became Cardhu. At the beginning of the millennium its owners decided to turn its single malt, which was extremely popular in Europe, into a blended malt, drawing huge criticism from amateurs and purists alike. Eventually, Diageo reverted back to the “original formula” of Cardhu 12 year old and later extended the range to include a limited edition Cask Strength and, more recently, an 18 year old.
