One of four new members of the Solist series from Kavalan, the PX cask hit the U.S. in April 2017. Like each entrant of the Solist lineup, it's bottled at cask strength. Since these are single barrel, cask strength releases, the ABV will vary. Expect 50-60% ABV. Its new accompanying mates in the series include Solist Amontillado, Solist Manzanilla, and Solist Moscatel.

Tasting Notes

"The nose offers a creamy sherry influence, with honey and a robust nuttiness. Palate is big, rich and sweet - vanillins, raisins, toffee, honey. This one isn't masking anything hidden the background, it makes its presence felt. Whereas much of the Kavalan lineup is delightfully soft and nuanced, this one moves in an entirely different direction, but is just as equally rewarding."
