A fabulous dram from New Zealand's Cardrona distillery. This is an exceptional expression from an up-and-coming distillery, only opened in 2015. This whisky spent five years maturing in a Central Otago Pinot Noir cask before being bottled in September 2021.
On the nose, there are figs, peaches, and a subtle bitter note. The palate has strawberries, apricots, and fresh vanilla cream before leading into the sweet and satisfying finish.
