Whisky Reviews for Kavalan Solist

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.61 points

  1. Misery scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    Powerful, overweight, with cocoa flavor with chocolate biscuit, oily dates, prunes and dark chocolate with nuts, tightly brewed tea, furniture lacquer. A sea of delicious tannins that connect the mouth at one point, with the nuances of prunes, chocolate and furniture varnish on the palate and a long, very long tannin wood-chocolate finish.
    Hydrogen bomb, heavy artillery even among sherry monsters. Liqueur, the color of Coca-Cola. One of the best sherry aggressors I've tried.

    RATING: 91pts - [n23, t22, f23, b23] → | 90-92: Excellent |

  2. el Gato scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Perhaps my favourite Kavalan. Some Kavalans just lack depth. This was more balanced imho. The finish had a slight souring finish, but not reuining it. Great dram!
    • Nose
      Sherry bomb. Furniture polish. Peach, and all the dried fruits. Great nose that keeps on giving. 
    • Taste
      Really punchy, but still balanced. Of course the dried fruits. Dates are coming through. Raisins start tp take over. Chocolate and orange. 
    • Finish
      The body continues into the finish. Evenrlasting finish. It is turning slightly metallic. some sulphur and tobacco to.
