Amazing New World Whisky
Tasted both the Kavalan Solist ex-Bourbon and Sherry during my last trip to Taiwan. The Sherry is such a beast that rock the whisky world. Having tasted both neat and with a few drops of water, I can assure you that water literally bring the whisky alive.
Nose: Very strong sherry influence with lots of fruits, and a bit of dark chocolate at the back. Palate: Mouth drying sherry that virtually bounce on your tongue like flamenco. Quite a lot of fruits and spices. End with some cocoa and nuts. Finish: Very long and gradual diminish.
I can see this as a love-it-or-hate-it whisky. Some maybe scared by the strength and aggressiveness of it. But for those who like the Aberlour A'bundah or the GlenDronach Cask Strength, this is something that you must try.

Expensive, but definitely worth it! Fruity, rich and smooth. The Oloroso sherry lingers underneath and makes for a rich, fruity and smooth whisky.
