Top reviews for Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique:

— I got this one from the Vault, and it was a great deal. Very complex and worth the money. I have put this in a blind test with Pappy and Weller's every day.

— This is currently my favorite whisky. Very strong vanilla notes and flavor. There is more to the flavor than vanilla, its very complex and I can't pick out all the individual components. I can say that I very much enjoy the mix of flavors. It's very unique and I haven't had anything else like it. It's quite smooth for a cask strength whisky. Be sure to have a glass of water before tasting or in between sips, it is very dry. The dryness is my only complaint.

— Love this! I almost never add anything but this one really needs just one ice cube. The flavors explode.

Carl,
If I had been blindfolded my initial impression was I was drinking a port. Quite surprising and delightful. Coming from a cigar background and using spirits as a pairing tool, this spirit is unique, IMHO. Smooth, with light bourbon notes and vanilla cream hints. The Caramel upfront taste coupled with chocolate mix and spice help boost a brown sugar finish. I may take some traditional Whisky drinkers some time to adjust to this spirit, but overall impressed.

Tom,
delicious but hot, pushing 120 proof it needs some water to cool it down. i like to pour a glass and taste it neat, then add a couple drops at a time and taste until i have the balance right.

Lorenzo,
This whiskey is smooth but hot. Little water needed to open up. This has alot of oak tannins, not much fruit. Not my fav of this group.
