Kavalan Concertmaster Sherry Cask Finish Single Malt Whisky (700ml)

TAIWAN
$120. 00 Bottle
$1440.00 Dozen
ABV: 40%
Tasting note: [15ml sample] The second whisky in the Concertmaster series is aged in the distillery’s own special reserve of refill casks, then finished in the Spanish ex Sherry casks. Moderate aromas of dried fruits, in particular, dried mango followed by a touch of banana. Medium-dry rather than sweet, accessible, well rounded and with solid depth at this ABV, instead of traditional sherried notes, blueberries come to mind, especially at the finish where the impression is enhanced by fresh acidity. 40% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... The driest sherry of any Kavalan I have yet encountered... It could have done without that sherry finish. 81 points - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2021
