Cardhu Distillery – previously called Cardow – must be one of the best located distilleries in Speyside. High on the hills on the north side of the Spey Valley with extensive views to the south, it is also the home of Johnnie Walker, the number one blended Scotch whisky in the world.
The malt itself - which is presented in an elegant decanter with a beechwood stopper - is pretty typical of a Speyside malt. It is highly approachable - smooth, sweet, mellow and uncomplicated and has good body and length.
"Just about the cleanest, most uncluttered, pure, sweet malt you will ever find."
Jim Murray, Whisky Bible 2008.
