A well-balanced, gentle single malt from Speyside. Cardhu 12 is a very well put together malt. Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt Nose: Good body, decent sweetness, richness. Streaks of smoke, apple peels, bruised pears. Palate: Smooth, rounded, gentle sweetness, soft peat. A little smoke whispers sweet nothings. Finish: Long, dry smoke, malty touch of peat.
