Whisky Reviews for Kavalan Podium

- 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.
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
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
Oak; getting slightly dry, still fruits and spices; the barrel hangs, briefly herbs again. Overall, a slightly bitter but pleasant note remains
- Whole woody whisky that goes sweet in taste. Simple, rather bland. I wasn't very impressed.
Woody, slightly sweet.
Sweeter than in fragrance, woody.
- 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.
Sherry; intense fruity-sweet ;; clearly banana; Vanilla; delicate mint; spicy oak
soft and creamy on arrival; sweet and fruity; Banana; Honey; Apple; Grapefruit; peppery seasoning
peppery-spicy - slowly fading away; slightly dry; delicate fruity notes; slightly bitter with notes of coffee
- Great easy to drink malt. Very tasty without too much to overwhelm.
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.
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.
Medium-length finish, the spicy sharpness returns quickly, it gets drier.
There is a slight bitterness after coffee
- A very nice exotic malt for in between, nothing more and nothing less.
Light honey, lots of banana liqueur, vanilla, creamy, wax, linseed oil, marzipan, almonds, you have to tease everything but a little bit after the banana, a little green apple
Also sweet here, now also pear, slightly unripe banana, calvados, linseed oil, coconut juice, almonds, marzipan, light honey, green apple, a touch of grapefruit, white pepper, ginger, camphor, esthernotes, vanilla, a little woodruff, distillate tea, citric acid, a little alcohol, later a hint of anise
Exotic fruits, pear with shell, coconut, apple and grapefruit, light malt, camphor, medium-long, warming
- Sherry and fruits in the nose Bitter chocolate tannins from the oak Medium in the finish
