"Previously called Cardow - must be one of the best located distilleries in Speyside. High on the hills on the north side of the Spey Valley with extensive views to the south, it is also the home of Johnnie Walker, the number one blended Scotch whisky in the world.
The malt itself - which is presented in an elegant decanter with a beechwood stopper - is pretty typical of a Speyside malt. It is highly approachable - smooth, sweet, mellow and uncomplicated and has good body and length.
A limited quantity of Cardhu 12 year old will be available in the United States starting in mid-2010. If you are looking for a single malt whisky with similar flavours, why not try Dalwhinnie or Clynelish? " ~ Distillery notes
