Whisky Reviews for Kavalan King Car Whisky

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.72 points

  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Sherrylastig, a touch of nut, marzipan, rose water, spices and a dash of oak. Overall sweet and sour, some tobacco, cherry, lychee and plum

    Taste: Sherry, sweet onset, PX + Oloroso, oak, then becomes sour-bitter

    Finish: very short, sherry, slightly sour, and slight bitterness

    Conclusion: nice aroma, good cask, but it's missing something - the malty top note of a good scotch, also bothers the slightly sour note and the extremely short finish - 83 points

    A real sipper, as far as I am concerned. There is something nice to find for a lot less money, so I would not spend my money on it.
    • Nose
      Very clean nose with lots of fruit, citrus, fresh.
    • Taste
      In the line of the nose, but not really profound.
    • Finish
      Very soft and relatively long aftertaste.

  4. aphex scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Not a bad whisky. Just too oaky, unidimensional and short.
    • Nose
      Toasted bread. Fruity (bananas) and floral with hints of vanilla, caramel and honey. Spices.
    • Taste
      Oaky, peppery. It needs a little time for the fruits (apples and exotic ones) to develop but they never really offset the oak.
    • Finish
      Short. Oaky / peppery.
