Kavalan Solist ex-Bourbon Bottling Note

Solist is German for 'Soloist', which in this case refers to the fact that this expression is from Kavalan's single cask range (they really, really like musical metaphors). Given this whisky is of course Taiwanese, I can't really tell you why this range has an apparently German name but I can tell you that their ex-Bourbon cask releases won a Gold Medal at both the ISC 2010 and the IWSC 2011. Impressive.

    Nice and smooth

    I thought it was worthy of a Gold Award so I bought 6 bottles and hope the price will continue to go up.

    It's big, it's smooth and delicious!

    I happened upon this Whisky with no prior knowledge of Kavalan. Cask strength means much of the joy from this drop is in the long, creamy finish. A wonderful whisky.

    I agree with @Surprisingly nice. If you actually tried this whisky you wouldn't rate it so poorly. Taiwan's hot seasons simulate the aging process in spirits more quickly than the climate in Scotland which allows them to release younger spirits that are still flavorful and complex.

    Kavalan ex-Bourbon really is delicious whisky, and quite unique in my collection with tropical flavors of coconut, banana and spice. Fantastic.

    Bounty bar beauty

    My third experience of a Kavalan malt and whilst the other two were very good this is superb and up there with the best ex bourbon cask influenced malts I have tried. Quite a hot and spicy explosion but it soon soothes its way into your heart with its coconut,custard,vanilla,white chocolate, cinnamon toast flavours.lots going on the nose, palate and a finish to die for.A bourbon cask party in the mouth and all the flavours you expect are invited.The whisky flaneur

    Surprisingly nice.

    I don't really think the guy below tasted this whisky at all because if he did he should have at least given 3 or 4 stars. The smoothness and richness of this whisky all show that, despite the cliche, age is not the most important factor.
    The price is a little bit high in the UK but I got it in Taiwan; only £50 in Taiwan airport duty free shop.

    this whisky is OK if it's priced at 30 pounds, i wouldn't pay the price of a premium whisky for this 4 year old Kavalan

    The comment below

    referred to the sherry cask version. I had put it under the wrong title, excuse me.

    The bourbon version tastes much better to me, with rich, aromatic sweetness that is immediately satisfying yet keeps on and on. It will be a classic.

    Way too much sherry

    So much so that the taste goes a long way towards a brandy. An impressive dram by itself though. For a better balanced result I'd suggest the ex-bourbon version from the same series.

    Came a day later on my advent calendar

    Excited to try it!

    Merry Christmas

    This was a part of the advent calendar today. Lovely, sweet and warming. One of my favourites.
