Cardhu 12 year old

Aged: 12 years

Colour: sunlit straw

Strength: 40%

Price: around £30

Best for: presents (giving, not receiving)

Nose: vanilla sweetness swirls around with malt and summer meadows, teasing you in very nicely indeed

Taste: so it’s shame the taste can’t match the nose and by contrast is a little disappointing although it does try with soft hits of sweet fruits, citrus and a light lacing of peat. It’s just never quite enough of anything though

Verdict: fruity, light, floral and forgettable
