This is the diluted version of "Solist", the cask strength ex Sherry matured whisky produced by Kavalan.
Tasting note: Impressive polished mahogany / copper colour. Fleeting flashes of sulphur are dissolved into layers of dried fruits as fig, apricot and vanilla vie for attention; levels into a lower-key fruit cake focussed bouquet in the later passes. A light entry leads into a mildly tannic fruit cake-like profile, with the sweetness tempered by balancing spices and drying oak. Tannins reassert at the finish as the fruit cake flavours subside. Nice textural qualities and plenty of ‘old school’ sherry influence here. Think GlenDronach in mid to late teens and you get the picture. 46% Alc./Vol.
