“Oh godness! Such greatness! This sherry bomb looks more like aged in a sweet oloroso with a good amount of moscatel cask. It works really well. Get one ( or two )”
Many thanks to King Car Distillery for this sample of Kavalan. I have hear that these great whiskies will soon be available in USA and UK. They really worth the waiting.
This dram has a treacle-like color.
Nose (92): more than average. varnish, honey, raisins, citrus, vanilla. There is greatness inside this whisky
Palate (92): powerful, oily. raisins, wood, honey, citrus, spices, leather, chocolate.
Finish (92): longer than average. raisins, honey, tropical fruits.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Kavalan Solist Sherry Taiwanese Single Malt Whisky with 92 points over 100.

Some people have told me that they didn’t like this one. I find it quite interesting but smells and taste more like a brandy than like a whisky. Perhaps the sherry cask have had too much influencie on the whisky. Anyway, in my opinion is a whisky that is worth trying.
