Using Portuguese ruby Port wine casks as the main flavour, Kavalan Concertmaster single malt whisky is the first matured in specially selected American oak casks and then finished in port barriques. The marrying in the barriques mellows the flavours and adds indefinable smoothness to the whisky. It is rich bodied with natural sweetness and complexity.
Nose: A tropical fruitiness of berries with honey, vanilla, coconut and delicious candy floss.
Taste: rich bodied with natural sweetness and complexity with that additional elegant woodiness that is a result of the second maturation in superior white oak Port casks.
Finish: Short and sweet.
It was surprisingly good. The last Kavalan I tried didn’t taste that good but this one was different, I forgot the name of the last Kavalan.
