Price: $101 Issue: Fall 2013 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Cardhu—for me, at least—means intensity, and this delivers precisely that, with masses of

any richness cut with fresh acidity. Zesty and fresh on the finish. Try it in a

Bobby Burns. Released without any fanfare, here's evidence that Cardhu's

rebuilding its reputation nicely. £66
