The Cardrona Single Malt Whisky – Growing Wings – Solera


375ml, bottle

The Cardrona's Growing Wings Malt Whisky Solera is a natural cask-strength celebration of maturation. This New Zealand single malt whisky combines whisky aged in ex-bourbon barrels and ex-oloroso sherry butts using the solera method. The result is a complex and well-rounded whisky with hints of vanilla, spice, and fruit.


The solera method creates a unique flavor profile by continuously blending aged whisky with younger parcels. Here’s what you might expect in Growing Wings Solera:

Vanilla & Spice

From the ex-bourbon barrels, expect notes of creamy vanilla, along with hints of baking spices like clove or nutmeg.

Sherry Influence

The ex-oloroso sherry butts contribute dried fruit character (raisin, fig), nutty notes (almond, walnut), and potentially a touch of chocolatey richness.

Malty Core

The single malt base adds a grainy sweetness and a touch of biscuit character.

Solera Impact

The solera method promotes smoothness and complexity, with a seamless integration of different aging stages.
