Lithe and light-bodied, this is a superb Cardhu expression, set off perfectly by a mysterious note of Parma violets and with all the timeless elegance of a perfect single flower. This is a harmonious and utterly charming Cardhu, its aromas fruity and meadow-sweet, its taste sweet, luscious and well rounded, accented by a striking and unusual perfumed note.
The mild nose is fresh and lightly fruity, as gentle aromas of white
grape and lychee frolic with sharper hints of green apple, pear and
a trace of orange zest, all enrobed by a hint of buttery pastry. Rising
above these, a light spicy note reveals more of the wine-seasoned wood.
A drop of water introduces a light note of meadow flowers, which
become distinctly honeyed with time.
A soft, creamy-smooth and quite full texture, the sweet taste suggesting
home-made toffees. Soon, that taste becomes more fragrant and hints
of Parma violets, a note further enriched by winey red apple and pear fruit
and made more appetising still by crisp, clean oak. A dash of water softens
it to a delightful creamy-sweet freshness, leaving just a hint of spice.
Short, sweet, clean and warming, with lingering perfume in the aftertaste.
With water smoother still, as a warming pinch of white pepper appears,
while there is a final burst of green apple in the aftertaste.
