KAVALAN 11 ans 2011 Pedro Ximenez Sherry Cask PX110218016B Antipodes


The Kavalan distillery is known throughout the world for the incredible diversity of its sherry cask bottlings, influenced by Fino, Manzanilla, Amon-tillado, Oloroso or Moscatel. With exceptional maturity and fullness, this version matured in a Pedro Ximenez sherry cask faithfully recreates the atmosphere of an Andalusian cellar and overflows with oxidative and rancio aromas. Particularly luxurious, it is at times also filled with the phenolic esters typical of Jamaican rum. This delicious and explosive complement of aromas and flavours leaves an indelible mark on the taster’s memory.

Tasting Notes

Colour : Deep orangey copper.

Nose : Rich, deep. Characterised by a beautiful chocolate and apricot rancio, the first nose also reveals a wealth of dried fruit and nuts, including almond, walnut, date and fig, as well as noble spices (curry, ginger). Allowed to breathe, vetiver and camphor aromas appear alongside notes of leather and hot rubber. Next, exotic fruits (very ripe banana and mango) accompany rum-like oxidative fragrances of molasses.

Palate : Firm, lively. The divinely chocolate attack gives its own take on the empyreumatic register of the nose (tar, grilled walnut, walnut stain). On the mid-palate, this magnificent sequence of flavours gradually gives way to candied citrus fruits (orange, mandarin), spices (cumin, ginger, cinnamon) and Zan liquorice sweet (liquorice, mint). The very floral end of the palate releases orchid, geranium and tuberose fragrances.

Finish : Long, very serene. With its notes of forest floor, mushroom and lichen, the start of the finish is a faithful summary of the nose and palate. Gradually, salted butter caramel and biscuit highlight the flavour palette’s rich and smooth character. Then, at the end of the finish, coffee beans spread across the palate, bringing an invigorating bitterness. On the retro-nasal olfaction, refreshing notes of white mint and vervain coat the taste buds. The empty glass is at once medicinal (ointment) camphoric, praline and delicately woody.
