Kavalan Selection Peaty Cask

DESCRIPTION

More peaty than the Kavalan Peaty in our 2015 Collection, this version nonetheless has the same elegance and complexity. In fact, the dichotomy between the nose and the palate has an enlivening effect, keeping the taster’s senses on constant alert. And then there’s the finish - a real source of pleasure which ends in a grand finale verging on perfection.

Single Cask #R070423087 Limited edition of 117 bottles – LMDW world exclusive Profile: peaty, opulent and precise. The palate gradually becomes deliciously fruity, juicy and exotic (banana, mango, guava).

TASTING NOTES

  • Color: deep burnished gold
  • Nose: refined, precise. Rings of smoke firmly but gently take hold of the aromatic palette. A multitude of spices (pepper, clove, cinnamon) follow in its wake. Left to breathe, candied fruit (apricot, peach) accompanied by citrus fruit (orange, grapefruit) give it both pleasant freshness and great presence.
  • Palate: rich, opulent. The attack reveals a bold, oily peat not present in the nose. Very voluptuous, the mid-palate increases in power to become heady (peony, hyacinth). Without losing an ounce of peat, it gradually becomes deliciously fruity, juicy and exotic (banana, mango, guava).
  • Finish: long, creamy. An example of almost perfect balance. The saline finish is pulled together by a very refreshing, fruity (orange) acidity. At the same time, the fine pungency of the peat leaves an invigorating bitterness in its wake (ginger, gentian), as bursts of sugar coat the taste buds. The retro-nasal olfaction embraces us with resplendent elegance. The empty glass is peaty, smoky and praline-scented.
