Growing Wings Tasting Notes

About Cardrona Growing Wings
This release is very special to the Cardrona family because it was the first distillery owned barrel that was filled, Barrel No. 101.
Cardrona’s progress report series allow whisky lovers to follow the spirit’s progress towards its future signature 10 year old. Cardrona’s icon is named in honour of its guard, the New Zealand falcon. The New Zealand falcon is often found perched at the end of the barrel house, and the bird famously stood on the neck of the wash still as it was craned into the distillery.

What you need to know about taxes
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
