Tasting Notes

Nose

Pineapples and wax polish, with fruity mooncakes, apple pie and mango tarts – a fruit-filled bakery. Candied lemon notes build, with zesty citrus oils balanced by sweetness. Biscuity notes develop, along with dried apricots and papaya.

Palate

The pies and cakes return, drizzled with sweetened cream. Spiced apples and freshly sliced pineapple are wrapped in shortcrust pastry and topped with crumble. Sharper fruit notes develop: more apple, unripe mango and poached pear. Creamy vanilla sponge follows, lightly seasoned with baking spices.

Finish

Sharp fruit fades to leave spiced pastry.

Comment

An easy-drinking whisky that doubles down on Kavalan’s fruity character.
