    N: Contemporary, non-Scotch style single malt, fresh, composed, lightly spiced with a soft huskiness and a desirably [confectionary] fruit sweetness – banana, honeydew melon, firm pear, ripe-yet-crisp apples. Of those casks – both active – the sherry has the edge over the bourbon. All good so far.

    T: Everything on the nose comes together very well on the palate too. Here, a powerful driven delivery talks more of the bourbon cask[s] yet the [oloroso] sherry/bourbon combo provides a pleasing taste profile above a new make-y spirit. Much like another Growing Wings release I recently tried at 64.9% [WLP80], this one also asks for water but the act of diluting dumbs it down significantly.

    F: More fruits towards boozy banana milk with active wood spice before a pillow-soft husky conclusion and a passing milky melted chocolatey mouthfeel.

    C: Taking into account the whisky’s age, the distillery’s age, its approaches, and the importance of its place in history, this is commendable stuff. Furthermore, Cardrona has a long game.
