Product details

The most prized possession in the Kavalan portfolio, the Fino Cask Solist utilizes sherry butts from the most restrained and elegant style of Jerez wine and puts them on the top floor of the Taiwan distillery's warehouse, where the heat is at its most intense. Known as the "the church", partly because the vaulted ceiling resembles a cathedral (and partly because miracles seem to happen inside the sherry butts resting in this room), the temperature reached inside this chamber helps to excrete more nutty, almond flavor out of the fino barrel and into the Kavalan single malt resting inside of it.

A number of Scottish distilleries have used fino sherry butts in the past, but none were able to capture the essence of the sherry so intensely in their whiskies due to the colder aging conditions in Scotland. Taiwan, on the other hand, with its tropical climate has proved to be holy ground for this type of cask maturation. The Kavalan Fino is indeed heavenly. Rich and malty, with a turn towards salted caramel, toasted almond skins, toffee, and creme brulee, this is a side of sherry-aged whisky that we rarely ever see. Hedonistic and other-worldly, indeed. Bottled at 57% cask strength.
