A cask-strength, single-cask Kavalan distilled in June 2012, aged entirely in a wine barrique and bottled in 2018, exclusively for The Whisky Exchange. The resulting whisky is a full-on wine cask experience, with layers of rich dried and berry fruit complimented by sweet apple, spice and a touch of the tropical.Tasting Notes (1)

Tasting notes by Billy Abbott
Danish pastries with wine-soaked raisins to start. Baked apples drizzled with toffee sauce follow, along with rich lardy cake packed with soft brown sugar. Caramel shortbread develops, heavy on the caramel, with cherry jam, spiced butter and a touch of chamois leather. Char notes hide underneath, gentle and balancing the brown-sugar sweetness.
A punch of liquorice and blackcurrant leads to dry, toasted spice – cinnamon sticks, cloves and a smashed nutmeg. Tannic berry skins build, with spiced shortbread, black treacle and richly-flavoured maraschino cherries. Dried mango and spicy baked apples pop up at the back squashed on toasted black bread and sprinkled with crushed, spicy speculaas biscuits.
Liquorice and char linger, with sweet apple and spiced sponge cake fading in and out.
A full-on Kavalan with a big sherry-like wine cask giving stacks of berry and dried fruit character. Intense and intimidating as it is, Kavalan's fruity spirit still shines through, with apple and mango uncowed.
