The classic Speyside Single Malt… but bolder.

John Cumming was one of the rare Whisky smugglers that successfully transitioned to legal operation when the oppressive tax and production laws were eased. Thus, Cardhu was born in 1824. You may know Cardhu as one of the signature core malts of Johnnie Walker, but it was a Single Malt long before the blenders got their hands on it. Happily — after a few mis-steps — Diageo has restored it to its former delectable Single Malt glory where it is pleasing customers and winning awards once again.

It may sound as stating the obvious, but Cardhu15 is a deeper, richer, bolder expression of their signature twelve year old Single Malt. That means it’s a classic interpretation of Speyside style. And as opposed to having a peat-influence infused into it, Cardhu gets the faintest whiff of peat from the local waters which flow past a natural peat bog nearby. This is relatively unique for a Speysider, and that’s one of the reasons fans like it. The main flavor profile speaks of stewed pears with a thick body and light sweetness.

Smartass Corner:
The word Cardhu comes from the Gaelic "Carn Dubh" which means "black rock.”
