Ratings & Reviews
Ajit
Ajit,
Very smooth. Tastes like port wine with a finish of aged single malt. Floral smells are great too. Not too sweet or dry.
 
Roy
Roy,
Not much to dislike here. Following a brisk summer evening hill pursuit to my fellow malt consumers abode, the Kavalan went down at a surprising rate of knots alongside a Caithness IPA. Session malt.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
This one is in between a 7 and an 8 for me. I went with 8/10 because its complexity hits really well. At first sense of smell, I thought this was going to be very sweet and not much else. However, once it hit my tongue, its taste transformed to something completely different. I was too distracted the first time tasting it, so I took a second sip and tried to taste the flavors. The floral and oak tastes I think are what first pop and then almost immediately shifts into a sweeter taste with a spicy/zesty finish. I did not particularly pick up on the meat, but perhaps you would be more inclined to pick that up if you were eating it with steak, which I was not. Finish was okay, decently long, but this receives an 8 for me just for the complexity of flavors.

AJ,
Sweet, smooth start, slight bite at the end. Nondescript smell.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
This was very good. Based off of the taster notes I do get lots of floral sweetness and creaminess followed by the oak and a bit of spiciness (though hardly any, this goes down almost too smoothly). Love this dram. Definitely in my top 5.

Alex,
Clean and fruity! Excellent for a drink you can just relax with.
 
Phil
Phil,
My rating is impacted by the fact that my local ABC had a close-out on this whisky and I napped three bottles for $40 each. But this is a solid whisky. I view it as a blend between old-world whisky of Europe and new-world whisky of Japan, adopting the best of both. Very smooth, very silky, with tones of sweet and fruit. Honestly, some sips went down as smooth as water which is dangerous. If you can get for a good price, I recommend it highly.

Did not like the finish. It completely ruined the whiskey for me.
 
Corey
Corey,
Just a really nice and smooth whisky. I was surprised that it was Taiwanese, I had a little trouble deciding which favors really stood out the most. I got subtle vanilla, almost caramel. Very pleasant drink. I would definitely drink more.
