Another amazing malt from Kavalan who have to be a distillery that is talked about in any conversation about who is making the worlds best and most reliable single malt. This is a big and bold Sherry cask aged malt that has flavours more reminiscent of darker sherry than fino cask.
The nose comes across like antique cognac, all grapey with rich buttery roasted nuts, dark honeycomb, caramac bars, sherry soaked sultana/raisin, orange blossom dark honey, malty rum fudge and aromatic oak. Big, malty & powerful on the palate with toffee, caramel, dark honey on cinnamon toast, toasted mocha, hazelnut purée, buttery malt loaf & rum butter.
The finish goes on forever with notes of caramelised banana, rich buttery nutty oak & again that old cognac grapey note creeps in along with Muscat pudding wine, coffee creams, toasted walnuts & salted caramel.
Simply awesome new world single malt.
