Kavalan Solist Vinho


Description
Winner of Best Single Malt of the Year at the 2015 World Whisky Awards, this cask was selected by Kavalan Master Blender Ian Chang himself, exclusively for Australia and New Zealand. 

Limit of one per customer.

Vinho Barrique is fully matured in used American oak wine barrels, slow grown and seasoned in the open air for at least 34 months.The casks have (deliberately) been used to mature both red and white wines which eventually will contribute the background complex fruitiness to Kavalan Solist Vinhos. After their use for wine maturation the casks undergo a process called STR (Shaved, Toasted and then Re-charred). They are  carefully shaved inside then  toasted  for a strictly controlled period of time and temperature. This converts wine residues into a complex mixture of fruit flavours including lime, berry fruits and peaches. The  casks are then charred for a short period of time to release lashings of flavours such as vanilla, ice cream and caramelised sugars.
