Whisky Review: Kavalan Solist Oloroso Cask
Because this is a single cask Kavalan, results may vary.
Kavalan Solist Oloroso Cask S090610008A / 57.8%
Tasted neat / with a splash of mineral water
Aside from being able to say that this is bottle 78 of 319, there’s not much known about this ex-Oloroso single cask Kavalan. I think it’s almost 10 years old, but the label reveals nothing.
- Color: burnt umber (1.7)
- Nose: burnt rubber, dry sherry, white pepper, and bitter herbs
- Taste: milk, squeezed orange juice, sugar-dipped hawthorn, and cigar smoke
- Finish: long, leather with hints of dragonfruit
Despite some off-nose, the whisky doesn’t taste rubbery and I quite liked it. It’s rich, complex, and perfect for a cold day!
