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.”

First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
When Elizabeth Cumming sold the distillery to Johnnie Walker in 1893, it was under the condition that the Cumming Family -- who made up a large part of the current staff -- continue on running the day-to-day operations.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
