  6. katarn_rb scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Tropical and slightly sour dark fruits, red fruit tea, nutty and tart at the back.
    I would like more percentages. Slightly watery in the mouth.

  7. Sporx scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    finish
    Medium length, almost long, fruity, herbs, spicy wood

    A little more revs would do him good

  8. Martinesk scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A little weak around the front on the chest. He makes up for it from the back.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Honeydew melon, very ripe, dark yellow fruit, maybe some cinnamon.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Slightly watery at first, then sherry spiciness builds and fills the mouth.
    • Finish
      84 84
      wood and spice

  9. hwagiggs scored this whisky 88 points Newbie

    This is an amazing whisky. It takes a long time to sober up in the glass.
    After 20 minutes of decanting, the aroma peaks; 30 minutes, the best taste; 60-90 minutes, all the flavors are dancing.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fruits that are about to ripen, such as red and dark fruits such as cloth and apple, have a rich and deep aroma; the flavor of malt and salt-baked nuts penetrates from the fruit, which is not weak at all. This mixed aroma, without the sense of sharing or exclusion, is fully integrated and very harmonious.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Silky, sweet, slightly spicy, light and oily.
      The mixture of caramel and honey moisturises the mouth with a hint of sweetness; assorted fruits composed of orange, banana and mango, as well as fruit tea of red raspberries, grapes and apples; all kinds of spices dance happily on the tongue , slowly, into a hot dance.
      Excellent balance!
    • Finish
      87 87
      Dry and long aftertaste.
      The hot chocolate is wrapped in toffee and melts in the mouth; cranberry juice, grape juice, orange juice really come together, you are in me and I am in you; the soft spices of cinnamon and clove combined with woody notes, experienced several cycles.

  10. Tangtang_WhiskyYoda scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    very intense sherry aromas.
    Lots of dark fruits.
    Works strong enough at only 40%.
    Easy drinking.
    Here in China it's about 40% cheaper than in Germany (about 45 EUR), which it's definitely worth.

  11. HKWhiskyExplorer scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Sampled during Whisky Weekender.

    Can definitely taste the spirit’s youth but the triple casks did a great job supplementing the liquid with Sherry and fruits.

  12. Hegu did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Young Taiwanese malt whisky matured in three different sherry barrels.
    • Nose
      Raisins, milk coffee, cocoa, herbal.
    • Taste
      Soft, milky coffee onset, quickly turns sharp and flattens out again.
    • Finish
      A little unnecessarily easy but just good, I miss the strength.

  14. Lorion scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    I was skeptical about the 40%. But he doesn't look flimsy. I'm positively surprised. 84 points.
    • Nose
      Fresh and nutty. Sherry, I think I can smell Oloroso.
    • Taste
      Fruity, even a little leathery. The whisky is reminiscent of older sherry cask bottlings.
    • Finish
      Medium length, fruity, subtly leathery.

  15. ThorstenH scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Easy to drink, but quite interchangeable. Light sherry flavors. No clear direction. I won't remember.

  16. EnjoyLife89 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      89 89
      Very strong. An exotic fruit note, but clearly charged with malt, spices such as cinnamon and cloves, dried fruit and raisins. It comes a beautiful oak with leather and wet tobacco leaves. caramel, vanilla. There's a lot in there.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Citrus, strong spices, oak, becoming slightly tart, cinnamon and cloves. There is also a clear Olorosso nut. Citrus again. Always cute. Fresh fruit. lychee
    • Finish
      87 87
      Dried fruit, light citrus, strong spices. Cinammon. Wood. Some tobacco again. Amazingly intense for 40%

  17. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    It's a great whisky with a fantastic nose, but not quite my taste
    • Nose
      88 88
      Intense, first roasted caramel and ham, then fruity with apple, dried apricots, peach candies. Underneath nuts and herbs (cloves, cinnamon), later some citrus
    • Taste
      82 82
      Redcurrant. Orange. malt sugar. Ginger and cinnamon. nuts. bitter. Completely different from the nose for me. Yes it works at 40%, but I personally find it too thin.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Some sherry tones and a slight bitterness.

  18. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Part of a Kavalan Tasting by Dramtime for the festive launch of their own Virgin Oak bottling.
    • Nose
      Fresh sherry nose. Sweet and full of red fruits. It’s got a good and accessible nose. Not a full on sherry bomb but rather subtle tasteful. Quite some spices on the nose as well. Some tropical fruits like peach and Thai long Kong, rum raisins.
    • Taste
      Rather light. It offers spirit influences with nutty oloroso flavors. After a while more sweetness gets in with raspberry and raisins. Freshly tanned leather and some milk chocolate as well. It’s a delight to keep on the palate for a while. Due to the 40% abv it never gets biting.
    • Finish
      Medium-long. Great sherried oak flavors! Polished oak, red berries and cherry candy.

      I must say I’m absolutely surprised since I had a little doubt because of the ‘just’ 40% abv. But this proves it doesn’t need to be at high strength all the time.

  21. zzs0529 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    A very easy-drinking sherry-style whisky suitable for olives and Spanish ham
    • Nose
      90 90
      Smell: Wow, the scent of sherry barrels is very good, with layers of dried fruit, cinnamon, cloves, and berries. The creamy chocolate is also matched with some rose petals, which is very romantic and elegant;
    • Taste
      87 87
      Entry: Long sweetness of dried fruits, almonds and candied fruit, acidity of citrus and blood orange, slightly bringing out the taste of chocolate, tannins are very restrained;
    • Finish
      87 87
      Ending rhyme: I didn't imagine the bitterness of dark chocolate after the sherry bucket was too heavy, but a very raw acidity that continued to stay in the mouth. The tannins were just right, very balanced, and the end was medium and long.
