  • Excerpt: I do like port cask whisky, but it always walks a fine line for me and this just happened to be crossing the line in the wrong direction.

  • Excerpt: Rich port on the nose. Peppery earthy palate. Astringent dry finish. Glad I tried a sample of this so I can pass on this anytime I see it around.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    This is a young, cask strength bottling from Kavalan in Taiwan. This is matured in Port casks.

  • Nose:

    Rich raspberry, ruby port notes, berry, caramel, port port port.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel, sweet but peppery, leather. Faintly fruity, very earthy and spicy

  • Finish:

    Long and some growing astringency. There's more fruit here than in the palate, but it's still a total spice bomb. Loads of pepper and tobacco

  • Overall:

    Rich port on the nose. Peppery earthy palate. Astringent dry finish. Glad I tried a sample of this so I can pass on this anytime I see it around.

  • Score:
