A sirenic Whisky, telling the story of Cardhu distillery.
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.
Part of Diageo’s Special Release collection of 2021, Cardhu 14 Year Old 2021 Special Release tells the story of Cardhu distillery. It goes something like this: a golden liquid greets you with white grape, lychee, fruits, and meadow flowers aromas. Then, the palate sings a harmony of heather-honeyed sweetness, creamy smoothness and flavors of lush red berries. Finished in Wine-seasoned casks, this sirenic beauty is best enjoyed neat.
