Malt Maniacs Awards (MMA)
In the MMA awards, Kavalan was named a winner in each eligible category of the program. Judges singled out two Kavalans for recognition as MMA's overall "Supreme Winners," the Kavalan Solist* Oloroso Sherry Cask and Kavalan Port Cask.
MMA Judge Tim Puett of the US said Kavalan's Solist* Sherry Cask was "Old school sherry, tastes like old Speyside whiskies."
Olivier Humbrecht of France said it was a "Dark sweet sherry. Round balanced. Great old refined. Fabulous."
Krishna Nukala of India said it was "Classic rich, complex nose...exceedingly sweet and thick…brilliantly sweet and sherry finish that is everlasting."
MMA Organiser Patrick Brossard said: "As for the previous editions, Kavalan won again, even if we had some changes in the judges. This highlights the excellent quality of their Solist* single casks."
