CARDHU 14 Year Old The Scarlet Blossoms of Black Rock Legends Untold Collection
CARDHU 14 Year Old The Scarlet Blossoms of Black Rock Legends Untold Collection. Cardhu gets a lot of stick in the whisky geek community. While some of that is from the ‘Pure Malt’ debacle of more than a decade (have a Google if you are interested in the wonders of categorisation and consumer confusion) it is also a soft and easy-drinking drinking whisky, something that is the opposite of what many more geeky drinkers are looking for. However, it continues to go from strength to strength, and has now broken out of its Mediterranean heartlands of popularity and turned its eyes to the rest of the world.
Despite that, it is still a very safe whisky – mixtures of bourbon- and sherry-matured spirit combined to create stereotypically sweet and spicy Speyside drams. This release, however, adds in something that is rare in the Diageo line-up: a red-wine finish.
