  3. magic_slim scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Young whisky - my fourth Kavalan and I am still not convinced about quality.
    • Nose
      Very fresh and young with sweet vanilla fudge, strong grassy notes, tea and lemon aroma. A picnic on a meadow with sweets.
    • Taste
      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. 
    • Finish
      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!
    79 points (nose: 85 / taste: 80 / finish: 73)
