A 2016 addition to Kavalan's core range, Sherry Oak uses the same casks that are normally reserved for the cask-strength Solist releases, but diluted to 46% using Kavalan spring water. Sweet and oily with notes of dried fruit, dark chocolate, pepper and raisins.
Here we have The Cardrona, the inaugural single malt from the Cardrona Distillery in New Zealand! It's been dubbed Just Hatched, because it's been bottled at three years old, just after its turning of age to legally be called a whisky. It's been matured in a duo of bourbon and sherry casks before bottling at cask strength, a burly 64.4% ABV. Though it's young, this weighty whisky packs some rather complex flavours.
