Cardhu Amber Rock is a single malt whisky matured in American oak ex bourbon casks. The Gaelic meaning of Cardhu translates to ‘black rock’, so expect the amber to be well defined, not least in the colour. The vanilla and spices from the American casks as well as oak tones result in a full bodied amber colour to the easy drinking whisky.
Cinnamon is most obvious on the nose, with honey and vanilla rounding off the aroma. A slight citrus flavour with caramel, spice and vanilla enlightens the palate and the whisky lingers with bitter orange and oak on the sweet and spicy finish.
