Vinho is fully matured in used American oak wine barrels that have been toasted and recharred in a way that brings out fruity vanilla notes from the whisky and wood overlaid on a delicate background of complex fruitiness.
The casks have (deliberately) been used to mature both red and white wines which eventually will contribute the background complex fruitiness to Kavalan Solist.
Color: Deep autumn gold
Nose: A rich fusion of vanilla and caramelized sugars. Complex and multi-dimensional background of pepper, spice, dates and other fruits, such as ripe melon and mango together with kiwi and a delicate blend of citrus fruits burst.
Palate: The taste ends with clean and complex flavours embodying all that is best in the finest malt whiskies and a long aftertaste.
