One of the most sought after whiskies from Kavalan's range, matured in sherry casks and one of the most sherried whiskies we've ever had. Big, rich and dark - an impressive dram from the Taiwanese distillery.

    Sean,

    Kavalan Solist Sherry Cask - 58.6% ABV Cask S060710004 A: Extremely dark walnut with a ruby tint. It actually looks more like a glass of PX sherry. N: Take a handful prunes soaked their rich dark juice, add some soft plums, fresh figs, plump juicy raisins, maraschino cherries, and a vanilla pod. Put them all in a big saucepan, add a generous glug of sherry and start stirring it all together over a low heat. That''s the aroma that''s rising out of the warming pan. Then there''s some hot fudge, butterscotch, and a faint pear drop/acetate/cola cube element creeping in. That''s what I''m smelling here. All in all, quite a stupendous aroma and very multi-layered. There''s no alcohol burn on the nose whatsoever (at this hefty 58.6% strength) P: Very rich with lip-smacking sweetness. Again, that rich raisiny-prune taste with lots of thick, super dark sherry and spices. A dark chocolate bitterness and pleasant oaky dryness start to show their faces after a few seconds and then vanilla ice cream starts to coat the tongue with a gentle peppery tingle. Have to keep this in the mouth for a little longer... F: Long with a gentle tingling woody dryness on the tongue. Rich mouth-coating that jumps between sweetness and light bitterness. The balance is just right. This will not be to everyone''s taste as it is one heck of a bold and richly sherried whisky, but if you''re a sherry-head, then you REALLY need to try this. It''s very more-ish and one to sit down and relish - certainly not a dram to knock back quickly, nor one to drink all night long (as it''s so rich and pretty heavy), but one to savour and enjoy. It even looks amazing just sat there in the bottle. Astonishing how a whisky of this age can seem so far beyond its years. A solid 94/100 from me
