The much sought-after Cardhu 12 year old Scotch single malt whisky is now available at Wild about Whisky. From the other side of the pond Wild Turkey Straight Bourbon has also arrived, filling in the gap the Wild Turkey 101 left some time back.
Cardhu single malt has long been the favourite of many a whisky fan, but sadly most of the production goes into the Johnnie Walker range of blends. After huge demand from whisky aficionados all over South Africa, the 12 year old is now available here.
