product Details

Cardhu 8 Year Old Miniature 1970s

Cardhu is the Speyside home of Johnnie Walker, and the distillery contributes much of its production to the world-famous blend. So much so in fact that the Cardhu brand was turned into a vatted "pure malt" for a brief period in 2002 to ease pressure on its stock, but quickly reverted back to a single malt in 2004 following widespread criticism. The incident saw the rewriting of the rulebook for single malt whisky, and the birth of the term "blended malt," adding some infamy to the Cardhu history books in the process. 

Despite the importance of Cardhu to the Johnnie Walker blends, there have long been distillery bottlings of its single malt. This is a 1970s example, predating the "Pure Malt" controversy by quite some time.
