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.
