    Steve,

    Unbelievable! Easily the best whisky I've ever tasted ! Wasn't really sure what I was doing straying away from "scotch" into Taiwanese whisky but what a great choice!

    WhiskyNotes.be,

    A good sherry monster. Good selection in the sense that it has some earthy Karuizawa notes but also keeps a certain roundness until the very end (a dry finale often being the Achilles heel of Kavalan expressions). The nose is certainly the best part.

    John M.,

    Looks like I'll be the first to review this. Overall, however, the official tasting notes are spot on! It's a dark, mahogany red color in the bottle. Basically the color of light port in the glass. It smells musty like old wood and musty like old grapes (like a good, sweet, old balsamic) with some immediate varnishy solvent notes that fade over a few minutes. Super nutty... walnuts, perhaps. This is a very complex nose that takes several minutes to dive into as the strong alcohol smell dissipates. The cask influence is very strong with an omnipresent sweet sherry nose. Undiluted it is strong, as expected. But, perhaps, not as strong as I would have expected. Drying. Very sweet and spicy. Grape jelly. Finish is spicy, sweet, oaky, and balanced tannins. Long and pleasant. Overall, really nice. An excellent, complex sherry bomb with lots of good flavors. Heavy sherry influence (have I reiterated that enough?). Nicely mature. Great strength. Would give 4.5/5 if that was an option, though I leaned just slightly lower (~85/100) due to the price point.
