Whisky Advocate’s #2 whisky of the summer issue’s top ten

May 23rd, 2012

Kavalan Solist Bourbon Cask, 57.1%, $100

This is the pick of the (Kavalan) bunch, the whisky equivalent of Fountains of Wayne; an effervescent dessert whisky, which from the first aroma to the final finish is a consistent mix of vanilla, coconut, and overripe banana, sprinkled with icing sugar and cinnamon. β€” Dominic Roskrow

    Not much to choose for the bourbon drinker!

        LOL, I see I was a bit premature John. Well done. As always I look forward to this blog every day.

      Gary, you may be right on the bourbon side — but given the number of slots that Kavalan has taken in the Top Ten list, this one — at the price — is compelling…I have not tried them before, so am quite interested!

    Great to see a whisky from outside the major nations being appreciated. It can be hard to win respect, no matter how good your whisky is.
