Cardhu Amber Rock, 40%

Price: $69 Issue: Summer 2014 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Bright gold. Very citric, sweet candied orange and tangerine marmalade, with a hint of pink grapefruit. As I said, citric. There's meadow hay and some sherbet as well. Water brings out lucerne grass. The palate is equally delicate and ‘up,' and quite acidic (no bad thing) with light, nutty chocolate and macadamia nut. When diluted, there's poached pear and charred oak. The finish is effervescent. Light, easy-going, keenly priced. The rehabilitation of Cardhu continues.£41
