On those I agree with most other reviews as well; very tropical! Sits in well with my all-a-around and adventurous taste. I can already imagine why Asia could be crazy for this, little hints of similarities with maybe Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or? It has perhaps a little strawberry mixed creme brule on the nose mixed with loads off tropical fruits and also red berries, most likely the wanted result of the Port-wine cask. Somewhere there hidden behind the fruit and berries is some sour candy as well?

The palate is in balance with the nose, first you get the warmth of the tropical sun and pleasantly spreads to your mouth if you let it take it's time. It's got the same fruity-berriness in that was present on the nose, but also packs in some spices and brown sugar caramel. After a few sips, you also start sensing some more of the oak.

Finish is little short, which is somewhat of a disappointment as otherwise the whisky is extremely enjoyable. You can get some hints of cocoa, port and berries.

To describe it with one word: Red.

The Kavalan Consertmaster might not the best choice for ultra-peat lovers, but, for someone who enjoys smoky ones and appreciates variety, this could be a great one! But me? Not as good as the bit pricier Solist-range, but I enjoyed it!
