Whisky Reviews for Kavalan Solist
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.76 points
- Young whisky - my fourth Kavalan and I am still not convinced about quality.
Very fresh and young with sweet vanilla fudge, strong grassy notes, tea and lemon aroma. A picnic on a meadow with sweets.
The first mouthfeel is very sweet - vanilla and caramel. Then it quickly becomes alcoholic and very spicy (peppery). In addition there are strong notes of tea.
Very spicy with a dry, slightly bitter and velvety aftertaste.
- http://www.weinkenner.de/2013/kavalan-fino-sherry-und-bourbon-single-cask-whisky-aus-taiwan-27096/ Color: straw yellow
Nose: sugar, lemon, slightly salty fruit,
fresh wet grass with a dull humus note and spicy
Wood, perfumed and slightly unbalanced.
Taste: Again mighty sugar sweets with
integrated perfume note, salty-spicy chewing gum, little fruit, but always getting better.
Finish: mid-length; overflowing, perfumed tea with pure sugar.
Note: The sticky sweetness covers the slightly fruity aromas; not really what we would like to drink!
