Just Tasted - Kavalan Fino Solist Cask S100914017A

Kavalan Solist Fino Sherry CaskKavalan Solist Fino Sherry Cask S100914017A Part of the Solist range from King Car distillery, this single malt whisky from Taiwan has been fully matured in a Fino sherry cask. Beautifully presented and bottled at 57%. The nose on this Kavalan is rich yet dry, lots of sherry notes as you'd expect with sweet toffee & vanilla fudge. Figs, sultana, toasted almonds, slight 'whiff' of smoke. Ripe apples with tropical fruit coming to afore. Lingering chocolate in the background, but very light. The palate is big & rich! Spice bomb - toffee and fudge returns. Slight note of burnt sugar, not offensive at all - adds a lovely dimension. Banana fritter, green apple, herbaceous and dry. Big and long finish, 60 seconds + and I can still taste the rich spice, sweet toffee, bitterness and a hint of dark chocolate. This Fino cask matured Kavalan is a very complex dram, yet so simply done. Perfectly formed you might say. If you like a sherry bomb, it's a must. The Kavalan cask we sampled was #S100914017A and has since sold out. We have a new fino cask on sale which you can find here, and if you'd like to view the full range of Kavalan whisky, click here...
