Never had anything from Kavalan. Not sure where in the range the Concertmaster is supposed to fit, so I'm going in without many expectations.
Light nose, reminiscent of your standard easy-to-drink bourbon finished malt. Fresh fruit, cinnamon.
Oily and velvety, but still very light taste-wise. Subtle spices, tiny bits of fruitiness.
Dry, sour, a little bitter. Dried tea and licorice. Almost some off-notes towards the peppery and with some ethanol, despite the low strength. Short, thankfully.
This whisky kind of fell a part halfway through, to be honest. Nothing straight up wrong with it, but it just came up way too short to be anything noteworthy.
