Colour: light brown with red. Nose: At first smell to me it’s sawdust or burnt wood (light), that smell you get when you drill through wood then it eases to be more like fresh oak wood chips, then some cake spices like allspice come out. The port is obvious though. Palate: Big start like diluted honey, but it moves away fast mid-palate with brown sugar or candy but that also doesn’t last long. Finish: Longer finish, with more spices, tobacco and berries mixed taking you back to the characteristics in the nose. A pleasant whisky, to me very enjoyable but a bit forgettable, the nose and first half of the palate are the best for me, it fades away fast but mildly lingers long and DRY (seems like a trademark of Kavalan).
