    • Nose
      Spicy flavours nicely mixed with fruit and wood. A light vanilla cream and banana.
    • Taste
      A snappy ginger and pepper spiciness followed by the sweet vanilla and honey. A little later the more woody tones take over to dry out everything.
    • Finish
      A good finish with the oak in the lead.

    The classic sherry affair from Kavalan, which keeps a reasonable standard and a bit shuddering in the drying reverberation, where it tends to add to the bitter side of the Force. Unfortunately, the price is quite blown due to the result

  10. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [July, 2015]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle with bottling stamp 24.12.2012 that I bought for 70 Euro in June, 2015.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state a delicate and nicely balanced dram that is dangerously quaffable...
