Kavalan Solist Brandy Cask Single Malt 700ml
Taiwanese whisky has been a 'thing' for a while now, since 2008 in fact, but the highly-regarded Kavalan whiskies are now finally available in NZ !!!
KAVALAN Solist Brandy Cask matures in selected first fill brandy casks, which give it its sweet and balanced taste. It is unchill-filtered with no added colouring and is bottled as a single cask at cask strength. Each bottling carries a serial number, cask type and the signature of the master blender.
Nose: Peaches and cream, strawberry jam, freshly cut passion fruit, creamy toffee, baking spices and warm honey.
Palate: Tinned peaches, oily with dark toffee, toasted nuts and tropical fruits.
Finish: A long finish of stewed peaches, lychee and cocoa.
