Bottle 037 of 525
Award-winning single Oloroso Sherry cask matured whisky from Taiwan, bottled with neither chill filtration nor artificial colouring. The outturn was only 525 bottles.
Matured in Spanish top quality oloroso sherry casks in special editions, Kavalan Solist Sherry is bottled by hand at the distillery, without any colouring, chill-filtration. It is a naturally smooth and rich whisky with a complex character. It is clean and complex with multi-layers of dried fruit, nuttiness and spices with some marzipan and vanilla touches to it as well.
This is a sherry monster. Not even something like the Aberlour a’bunadh comes close, maybe some single casks from Glendronach compare a bit.
Nose: Sherried oak and dried fruit – deep and brooding. Marzipan, nuts, dates, vanilla and spice.
Palate: More of the same, full and extremely impressive. More mixed dark spices develop with cocoa.
Finish: Condensed sherried goodness.
Overall: It’s just so sherried! Very impressive indeed.
