Whisky Reviews for Kavalan 2006

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.05 points

  1. Albaron scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    A strange whisky, has strong sherry notes. The nose is extreme and actually rather uncomfortable. There is a strong menthol note, but if you can call the smoke? Not really. Ambivalent and very constructed, plus a heat from the fire, which I do not like at all. Water does not really bring him much. A decent whisky, but he does not cut my socks off either. At least my best so far, but does not necessarily make you want more. I can not understand the hype about Kavalan at all. The price is a real joke, but you should expect more.
    • Nose
      Instantly oily and sour, fermented overripe fruit with solvents and also alcohol that tickles the nose, slight menthol note, which could also be described as smoke, sultanas, raisins and apple juice
      With water: The alcohol and the oiliness diminish, but otherwise he does not really close
    • Taste
      Acid and oily, strong onset, sultanas and raisins, black tea, orange juice, menthol (possibly smoke?), Sherry notes, some oak and a heat from the fire
      With water: Here, too, it is milder but also, more strangely enough, does not show any more aromas. And yet he still has the heat of the fire
    • Finish
      The sherry remains, but not for long, some black tea and a hint of oak, finally tannins and dark caramel just before burning, the salivation remains long

     I would really like to see a peated Kavalan as part of the core range in the future.
