Kavalan Solist Manzanilla Single Cask Strength
Kavalan // Taiwan
Kavalan uses ex-Manzanilla casks for this barrel-proof release. Since these are single barrel, cask strength releases, the ABV will vary. Expect 50-60% ABV. Solist Manzanilla is set to debut in the U.S. in April 2017. Along with it will be three other new Solist expressions, Solist Amontillado, Solist PX, and Solist Moscatel.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask Typeex-Manzanilla sherry cask
"Strong sherry hits immediately on the nose. There are also melons, dark chocolate, and salted caramel. The palate showcases more rich sherry with a hearty nuttiness and zesty citrus. Finish fades into vanilla with a touch of spice and oak. Overall very smooth while incorporating a range of flavors."
