Kavalan Ex-Bourbon Cask Whisky

$369.98

Kavalan Ex-Bourbon Cask Whisky is a delightfully complex, multi-dimensional single malt whisky, with vanilla, fruit, and coconut highlights. Matured in hand-selected American ex-Bourbon casks, the whisky is non-chill-filtered hence retains the fuller flavor of the natural single malt whisky. Like the Kavalan Sherry Oak, this release takes the same fantastic liquid that’s been used in Solist releases (in this case, the bourbon cask matured ones) and dilutes it to a bottling strength of 46% using local spring water.

Amber color. Aromas of roasted pineapple, bruleed lime, hints of copper pot still rum, hibiscus, curry, and caramel-chocolate truffle with a satiny, vibrant, dry medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long roasted kiwi, green tea, sage, and crushed pink peppercorns finish. A funky and tropical Single Malt with a spicy, peppery palate. Kavalan Ex-Bourbon Cask Whisky won a Gold Medal at both the ISC 2010 and the IWSC 2011.
Nose: Overwhelming vanilla and caramel to start. Significant nose hair singe from the high alcohol content – this does better with some water to tame to raw ethanol. With water, some candied fruit notes appear, and butterscotch adds to the caramel.

Palate: Wow, that’s a hot one at cask-strength! More honeyed in the mouth, but still with lots of caramel. Milk chocolate. Fruits are subdued, more green bananas and pineapple juice now. Pepper and classic oak spices pick up, with some woody bitterness. Sticky, oily residue on the lips and gums after swallowing, which is nice.

Finish: Long. The coconut returns on the finish, with some lingering tropical fruits. Not particularly sweet on the way out, as these are nicely balanced by the woody notes. Vaguely nutty. A grassy element also picks up now. This is a well-integrated finish, with that classic Kavalan astringency coming up at the very end.
