A first breath reveals a captivating coconut note, accompanied by a hint of tropical fruit. Malty flavours mingle with enticing vanilla, honey and a hint of caramel. The presence of oak rounds off the bouquet.


Ein cremiges Mundgefühl begrüßt den Gaumen, begleitet von einem Hauch von Sirup. Vanille und Honig tanzen in perfekter Harmonie mit fruchtigen Noten, während eine subtile Getreidepräsenz die Sinne erfrischt. Wie ein sanfter Luftzug lässt sich die Eiche auf der Zunge nieder und offenbart eine enorme Tiefe.


The finish is of medium length and leaves a pleasant warmth. A subtle bitterness tickles the palate, while spicy and dry nuances leave a lasting impression.


The Kavalan Solist Ex Bourbon Cask could also be a powerful, malty bourbon. Its cask strength gives it an impressive intensity that carries the flavours very well and in a well-sorted manner. Anyone looking for a whisky with a tropical flair will find it here.
