 – Rare Kavalan Solist Single Casks Part 2/3 –
– Oloroso & Moscatel –

Hoposphere invites you to Break Even XIV, on Sunday the 2nd of September 2018.

This is your rare opportunity to taste the oldest Kavalan Solist Single Casks to have ever reached Australia.

Sam from Hoposphere has been an avid collector of Kavalan since their first release, and for this round he will be delving into his personal collection to bring out some of the rarest Kavalan Solists to date.

Our second round will cover the use of Oloroso Sherry & Moscatel Sherry Casks. Including the infamous and highly sought after S06 Sherry Cask, widely considered as one of the best whiskies ever produced by Kavalan. We have also secured a first release bottling of the Kavalan Moscatel Solist to compare against a 2016 bottling. 

A cheese platter and light finger foods will be provided on the night, and a welcome drink from Modus Operandi Brewing upon arrival.

Tickets are limited to 24 people, with RSVP essential.
