General description

A pleasant enough whisky, but it’s nose belies it’s much nicer palate. Needs an age statement and higher ABV to really shine as currently the Port is dominating this.

This one is a 43%abv and is quite delicious. Very spicy and sweet with long finish. Love what Kavalan is doing

A good showcase of what a port cask finish can do to a whiskey. but really nothing else going on.

General description

Le porto est bien présente au nez, une petite pointe de menthe et de citron. C'est suave en bouche assez doux comme une petite compotée de fruit rouge tirant sur un caramel très cuit. Une finale assez longue, une petite fraîcheur mentholé en plus du bois.

General description

Sweetness abounds with tropical fruit, vanilla and a port finish, a hint pepper and spice to add more complexity. It is one of the weaker releases from Kavalan, but still worth your attention, especially if under $100 AU. It does not have the richness of the Solist Port Cask, but it's less than half the price. Best enjoyed from a Glencairn, to really focus the nose.

General description

Außergewöhnlicher, unglaublich süßer und fruchtiger Malt!

Nose

Voll und unglaublich fruchtig mit Mango und Papaya. Dazu Honig, Karamell und Vanille. Im Hintergrund eine leichte Würze. Toll!

Palate

Sanft, wieder die tropischen Früchten, sehr süß und eine leichte Pfeffrigkeit.

Finish

Zuerst wieder sehr fruchtig, dann kommt der Honig zurück. Zum Ende immer trockener.
