Tasting Notes

"The interesting thing about most Kavalan whiskies is the flavors are rich while the weight is not, and this is no exception. The sherried influence is strong, leading with oxidized, nutty flavors. Some faint smoke and red fruits emerge in the mid palate before making a spicy and swift exit."
