  1. EvilAFI scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A tasty entry level Kavalan, the low abv still packs a big flavor punch, but does have a much thinner mouthfeel from his big brothers and a shorter finish. But it’s still a great expression and a good value for those wanting to try something other than the regular scotch’s.

  2. Izzino scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Tasted at the Whisky Festival in Budapest. From the pair No1 and No2, surely the better shot, but also the fact that it is a very young whisky. It is sweet, fruity and slightly sulfuric.
