Kavalan Classic Single Malt

Single Malt — Taiwan

Tasted November 17, 2017
2.0 out of 5 stars
My simple reaction: why? This particular malt is just too similar to Scottish brands and comes across as a cross between Dalwhinnie and a light Dalmore. Those reviewers struggling to find a unique nose or palate are right I think. In my humble opinion I cannot taste the strand of mango that some seem to detect. What a shame. Is it there? Help! Given it is around $70 it simply cannot compare to either a Dalmore or Dalwhinnie 15 year old which are roughly the same price or less. Hope you have a better experience. 86 is a bit too high a score. Hud
