  2. recursiewhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I have tasted various Amontillado sherry’s and I always found the sherry very sour and extremely dry, so I expected a sour and very dry whisky. But on the contrary, this whisky has an elegant and restrained sweetness to it. It needs quite some time to open up. But once it’s open it treats you on lush, balanced and very elegant aromas and flavours. For me this was the big surprise of the Kavalan Masterclass, what a lovely dram.
    All in all a superbly elegant whisky.
