    The usual suspects: Sherry and fruit and a more subtile than the hard Sherry cask.

    This extremely dark Kavalan Vinho is a perfect whisky for lovers of exuberant sherry monsters - even if there was no sherry in the game or in the barrel. Everything is there: fruit, leather, dark chocolate, sweet, dry, ripe ... all interwoven in a whisky, which also shines with very well-integrated alcohol.

    Where this barrel comes from and how it was prepared exactly, I could not determine. But it is probably in the broadest sense "wine treated cask", which is indeed the basis of the soloist Vinho Barriques.

    Unfortunately, here - as with other outstanding Kavalanmonstern (for LMDW / TWE) - a price surcharge was estimated, so that came last around 190-200 EUR to call.

    As part of a private tasting was alleged that this Malt "too perfect" and "too designed" and not a craft product. Thus he was "soulless" in contrast to the Scottish opponents. I can not agree with this thesis because we have been experiencing the advancing industrialization and automation in the manufacture of Scotch Single Malt for several decades. In addition, 'design casks' have long been part of everyday life and, like the NAS wave and the masking of super-juicy malts, they are accepted through all sorts of finishes.
