  1. EnjoyLife89 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    For me, this malt is something completely different from Kavalan. This combination with the distillery character and the bourbon barrels is totally interesting. I think I can see the character of the distillery more clearly for the first time. The sherry soloist and the selection sherry are absolutely great, no question, but they are so loaded sherry grenades that the sherry actually outshines everything there. Here it is a bit more harmonious. So I think it's good to get to know the distillery better.
    • Nose
      A clear vanilla note jumps out of the glass. Accompanied by a floral and herbal note, it remains absolutely sweet, almost viscous on the nose. Behind it I have an exotic note, which I would declare as light coconut and a slightly stronger lychee note.
      Overall, it has something of marzipan and raw Christmas cookie dough
    • Taste
      Sweet; here comes a clear oak, a really nice spice; still this exotic aroma, lychee, mango, fresh apple and somehow refreshing herbs. Very interesting; now there's a leathery note on the barrel, I really like it
    • Finish
      Oak; getting slightly dry, still fruits and spices; the barrel hangs, briefly herbs again. Overall, a slightly bitter but pleasant note remains

  2. Pyromann scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Whole woody whisky that goes sweet in taste. Simple, rather bland. I wasn't very impressed.
    • Nose
      Woody, slightly sweet.
    • Taste
      Sweeter than in fragrance, woody.
    • Finish
      Woody, sharper.

  3. LeChiffre scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very tasty and tasty malt. My first cavalan and then a very good one. I think it will not be the last one. Overall, a solid malt, you can do.

  4. craide scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Great easy to drink malt. Very tasty without too much to overwhelm.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Subtle Sweet to Honey, Fruity to Banana Must Be a Light Mint,
      Light wax notes with vanilla are added. The fruit is more dominant. Everything else gradually comes through timidly.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Soft creamy onion, then directly peppery seasoning. Much sweeter than in the nose. The banana now has some green apple and a slightly exotic note of mango and grapefruit. Not too complex but it seems well balanced.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium-length finish, the spicy sharpness returns quickly, it gets drier.
      There is a slight bitterness after coffee
