Whisky Reviews for Kavalan Solist

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.79 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    At first glance, it seems unfathomable that 3-4 yo Taiwanese whisky would gain ‘under the counter’ status at a whisky festival, hidden from the public gaze and undisclosed to a potentially wider customer base. Price wise however it makes sense given the Solist single cask bottlings are currently retailing for £335 [TWE Apr ’17]. On top of that, this young Taiwanese distillery is selling whisky from the Solist range faster than they can produce it. It’s quite a phenomena given you can acquire a 1967 48yo Tomintoul for the same money as an Asian 3yo. It’s crazy and exciting times.

    Guided by his knowledge & expertise of sherry and whisky respectively, Nathan took Chris and I through the ‘under the counter’ Solist range Blog

    N: Wine sweet with mineral notes.
    T: Woody dessert wine.
    F: Sweet, light fresh
    C: Despite the wine references, overall I found it more Cognac-like in nature - the grape the common denominator. Not quite as convincing as either of the previous two, but still it scores a thoroughly impressive 87 points.

  2. Andytka3 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    N- Famine floral notes with rose syrup, hints of new leather. Cream soda and soothing mocha.

    P- Medium body. Creamy sweet, dried raisin and soft honey. A much lighter and friendlier dram among the Solist.

    F- Traces of heat at the back, lightly pungent with lifted coffee.
