Caduro is a unique vatting of Derbyshire single malt matured in a combination of American and French oak, both first-fill ex-bourbon and White Peak’s signature STR Casks (re-conditioned wine barriques that have been shaved, toasted and re-charred). The selection of STR casks and proportion of French oak used for Caduro adds extra fruit depth and intensity to the lightly-peated spirit.
Nose: Orchard fruit leads with crisp apple and candied citrus zest. Sweet Pear Drops and buttery fudge follow, joined by crushed almonds, vanilla cream, and roasted barley.
Palate: Layers of honeyed stone fruit and caramelised nuts are joined by hot cross buns, a touch of anise, and chocolate-dipped orange wheels. Creamy malt rests in the depths, with generous charred oak.
Finish: Subtle peat smoke wraps things up, while sweet, creamy notes of vanilla custard counter hints of gingery warmth.
