Review: – Ralfy – Cardhu 12yo – YouTube

Wow, Ralfy and Jim Murray agree! 83 points each. But in the Whisky Bible 2009, Jim Murray scored the Cardhu 12yo as 90/100. In his opinion the quality has slipped based on a change in the wood being used for the casks. 90/100 means “brilliant” but 83/100 still qualifies as “good whisky worth trying”. As Ralfy says it’s a good example of a Speysider and a nice entry-level malt for someone whose wanting to get into drinking whisky.

Cardhu is one of the eight Speyside distilleries on the Malt Whisky Trail. If you’re interested in a visit then take a look at Discovering-Distilleries.com. Cardhu has plenty of history since John Cumming took out a lease on Cardhu farm in 1811. The distillery is considered to be the spiritual home of the Johnnie Walker blend, which is still the principal blend Cardhu is used for today.
