Product Description

93.5 points Jim Murray's Whisky Bible for 58.6% version

Port is a Portuguese fortified wine that is robust and sweet with a fuller and richer body. It is therefore usually served as a dessert wine or digestif. Kavalan Solist Port Cask is fully matured in Portuguese Port barriques under the subtropical climate to create the multiple fruity flavours such as plum, blueberry, blackberry and strawberry just to name a few, with chocolate as the main background note.

Our tasting Notes:

Colour: Vivid rose

Nose: Pink grapefruit, tinned strawberries with well aged balsamic vinegar, cranberry sauce, deep polished oak, red cherry jam and stewed black plums, some charred tangarine rind and pink wafers.

Palate: Big and spicy delivery with lots of stewed red and black fruit, a real grape skin-dry grip mid palate and some great crunchy tannins that resemble brambly redcurrants, mulled wine like spices along with pmegranate, orange segments soaked in port and some late peppery strawberry and clove.

Finish: Grapey, red cherry and more spiced berries, toasted vanilla and pink wafers, pomegranate juice, crunchy cranberry and a lingering dusting of rose turkish delight fizzy spice.

A big, bold and complex Port cask influenced single malt from this multi award winning distillery, this is not shy in the flavour department and this is another stunning addition to the Solist range of single cask releases.
