Sophian
Sophian,
After several stellar Solist bottles, I was convinced Kavalan is my Asian value-for-money distillery of choice (Japanese whiskies cost too much!). So I seeked out a possible daily go-to from Kavalan. Bought this and was sorely disappointed. Found it weak, lack of flavour, watery and just fell short of all expectations. However, do contextualise that with the fact that the Solist range are all cask strength!

Pleasing texture, subtle notes of ____, honey, fruity aftertaste, let it coat and linger, afterfeel and aftertaste are where this one shines, a hot day's whiskey, Definite flavors of coconut.

Brett,
Really smooth. I was impressed and surprised with it. It’s a little sweeter than some other whiskeys but really solid.

Brandon,
Not kidding about dry. But only at first. Let it coat your tongue and savor. Then you can taste the fruit and vanilla. Gets smoother with each sip. Enjoy the sweet oaky smell as you drink it. Fun to try whiskey from the East.

My wife says, "Each sip is like a party in my mouth!" Let's hope so! This is a great sipping whiskey for winter nights by the fire. Quite good.

Corey,
This is a drinkable whiskey. I don’t think it’s great, tastes a bit immature. But its moderately smooth and has some flavor that pops at first but doesn’t linger.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
I enjoyed this one quite a bit. Lots of caramel and oak on the nose. Hints of fruit that I just can't put my finger on. Smooth with just a slight bite. I recommend just a drop of some high quality spring water. I'll be adding this one to the wish list but ultimately it'll come down to price. I'd be willing to pay $60 to $70 but it'd be a stretch at anything above that.

Sonali,
Very sweet aromatics. Strong flavors of fruit, vanilla, and caramel. Light and smooth body. Drinkable, but doesn't suit my tastes.

Smooth.

Fruit for days with an almost bitter aftertaste, but I’m a good way. Very different and rather enjoyable.

A heavy full flavored whisky. A good break from the rest. It's a great mixer w ginger ale.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
At first sip I would have guessed this to be scotch. It was a heavy Smokey flavor with some sweetness. The next day after the bottle was opened it was a completely different taste it was less smoky and a little sweeter. Overall I do like it but it’s not one of my favorites.

Great whisky! Very smooth and rich
 
Gunnar
Gunnar,
Indeed exotic, pretty simple on first taste and the fruit is sweet and overwhelming at first, but once you get used to it, it's a nice round drink with a twist.
