Bottle 196/225 Cask BO80908025

Nose: Vanilla, dusty caster sugar, pineapple and coconut. Palate: Sweet, spicy, vanilla with an odd bitter note. It isn't like bitterness you can get from oak, it is a slightly synthetic in nature. Finish: Peppery and medium long.

One word...disappointing. I was not a huge fan of the concertmaster and again this is an odd bottle. Maybe it is created for the Asian market and palate. It is ok but just doesn't do it for me.

Solist Sherry or Solist Barrique would be the Kavalans I would choose. I feel similarly to you with respect to both Kavalan Concertmaster and Ex-Bourbon.
