A staple in whisky lore, available almost anywhere and unexpensive for a single malt, Cardhu and its iconic bottle are linked to the very idea of scotch itself. Let's review it.

An intense amber pour that yields a citrus and spicy aroma, the likes of mandarin, orange peel, cinnamon, bubble gum... There's also bread and tobacco. Very nice scents, not too sweet, not too peaty.

It restrains itself when starting the sip (it'd probably benefit from a slightly higher ABV), then develops midpalate crispness and umami tones that structure it as you drink it. Quite long-lasting finish with an aftertaste of melon that lingers for a while. I like it.
