Cardhu Amber Rock Gift box & Glasses 70cl 40°

Distillery : Cardhu / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 23910

Cardhu Amber Rock is an elegant and fragrant Single Malt.

Its name, inspired by the warm gold colour of its liquid, evokes the precious amber stone.

It is the result of a first maturation in bourbon and sherry barrels and then a second maturation in especially selected toasted oak barrels, which give it round and sweet aromas of bourbon with rich notes of vanilla and spices.

This gift box contains one bottle and 2 glasses.

The Cardhu distillery has been founded by smuggler John Cumming, in 1824, in Speyside, Scotland.


The whisky produced by the distillery is the main ingredient of the famous Johnie Walker blend. The unique character of Cardhu ranks the distillery in the Classic Malts Selection. Created more than 20 years ago, this selection recognizes Single Malts crafted in the tradition of iconic distilleries, and offers the most impressive whisky styles Scotland has to offer.


Standing on the wind-whipped heather fields that surround the Cardhu distillery today, the verdant lilac grounds belie the truth of Cardhu’s origin name, ‘the black rock’, Carn Dubh. From this splendoured hill, the Cardhu distillery grew with unmistakable allure. From its iconic red door, the distillery welcomed passers-by for centuries, inviting them with a vibrant whisky, crisp with the sweet taste of Scottish orchards.

Colour: amber.

Nose: sweet, with hints of litchi and pear. Excellent balance of sweet tangerine citrus notes. These notes soften and give way to a rich malty taste highlighted with sweet caramel, honey and barley sugar. There are also notes of vanilla, apples and pears in syrup, spiked with cloves.

Palate: sweet and spicy at first, a taste of pears and sweet apples in lemon juice that then gives way to toasted oak notes. A final touch with marshmallow notes, creamy milk chocolate and vanilla.

Finish: long, sweet, spicy and creamy; a taste of sour cherry, dark chocolate, toasted oak and citrus.
