  1. Shane_IL scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Tasted at a Malt Mongers Israel evening.

    This was very interesting stuff. I’ve tried several peated cask whiskies before and have never felt the peat as pronounced as I did with this one. It adds quite nicely to the Kavalan character resulting in a subtle smoky character. The only downside here is the price.

    • Finish
      Long. Woodspice & bitter wood carry through. Slight hint of liquorice. Wood smoke. Smoked fruits.

    Savoury
    smokes, meaty, cured ham, some salt, lots of menthol. On the reverse,
    dry and clean on the palate, not the usual fat oily Kavalan, quite
    savoury and umami, similar to Isle peat. Good strength, prunes. Echoing.
