A smoky version of Kavalan and then a single cask version at cask strength too! For the peat lovers or peatfreaks, this is like Christmas in the spring! It doesn't get much better. This fantastic whisky is reminiscent of the iconic Islay distilleries Bowmore and Laphroaig in style, but has a clear, fruity body that embodies the character of Kavalan.
• Nose: Spicy notes with some seaweed and light smoke. Medicinal notes and peat waltz out of the glass.
• Taste: The taste starts out tight and opens immediately lively. The peat clearly forms the basis of the whiskey here, but you are soon taken into flavors such as orange peel, apricot and mango.
• Finish: A wonderfully long finish in which the smokiness, together with Cherrybrandy, turns into cashew and hazelnuts. Finally, earthier notes of gentian and ginseng linger along with a subtle peatiness.
