  1. SherryDrone scored this whisky 94 points Member Senior

    94? Well, this is an amazing cask. An absolute cracker of a dram. 55.6% ABV, 420 bottles. On the nose, its sweet, dates, plum pudding, manuka honey, raspberries, fennel, cloves & cinnamon. On the palate its juicy and so fudgy. No sulphur. Some tropical fruits but the dark fruits dominate. Finish is long, red tea & herbaceous. This is a marvel. Wonderful, intense & full. Not too oaky. Easy to score it less amongst the known sherry bombs like GD or Farclas family casks. However this Kavalan is brutally good and different.

    Aged for 10 years and 9 months and it's a miracle for a subtropical whisky. Most importantly, it's not over oaked.

      Everything is dark here. Sherry, black date, red date. Pepper, due to the high abv. Ripe fruits like plum and apple. Fig confiture. Black Cherry. Some black chocolate on the top. Extremely sweet. Literally everything you're expecting from a sherry bomb.

      Strong, full bodied and oily. Distinct oakiness but not too bitter.
