Proof66 Notes

Cardhu scotches have a strong history as a key ingredient in the Johnnie Walker blends of scotch, so popular around the world. They produce a few single malts that are particularly popular in Spain and other parts of the world. Cardhu 12yr single malt is the flagship (so to speak) of the Cardhu single malts.

Cardhu Distillery was founded in 1811 by John and Helen Cumming on the river Spey. It is said that Helen herself distilled the first gallon of scotch, giving rise to the claim that Cardhu is the only distillery pioneered by a woman. Her daughter, Elizabeth, actively took over the management in 1872. It has often been used as key ingredient in Johnnie Walker blends. The distillery (and the the Johnnie Walker brand) is owned by Diageo.

Light and simple. Nice refreshing maltiness, not very strong or complex. Not bad at all, but not that kind of whisky I'm looking for...

This is my go-to scotch, my Tuesday night scotch, my Blood And Sand scotch. It's light and floral -- definitely not for the iodine and seaweed crowd -- but it's delicious and relatively inexpensive.
