When I sampled Cardhu, I had it as part of a tasting flight at a pub. I selected Cardhu from the list, which was supposedly organized from sweet and fruity to dark and peaty. Cardhu was the last listed, so I assumed it would be peaty. I was wrong. It seemed rather bland in fact. I couldn't get any unique flavours coming out at me. It all seemed to blend together. It was good, mind you, but I expected a more complex scotch than I got. The finish was also somewhat disappointing; the flavours didn't linger nearly as much as I would have liked. Maybe reading it last on that list got my hopes up, but then again the person I was with suggested it as well. I would probably still buy a bottle, but I think I'd keep it to drink with someone who doesn't like their whisky as dark as I do, or someone who prefers a smoother drink.
