Rich auburn in color, Kavalan Solist "Amontillado Sherry Oak" Single Cask Strength Single Malt Taiwanese Whisky is aged in Amontillado Sherry Cask, which is a rare kind of dry sherry in the whisky world. It is darker than Fino but lighter than Oloroso. The whisky is first maturing with a cap of flor and then expose to the air by removing the flor for further oxidation. The resulting spirit is rich, spicy and fruity with creamy richness and layers of flavors of dark berries, vanilla, walnut, almond, mocha and a touch of oak. The nose is carried over to the exotic, full-bodied palate with a hint of caramel and added complexity of caramelized nuts, tropical fruits and black pepper. Truly a sipping whisky, enjoy it neat.
