Winner of the 2015 World Whisky Awards - Whisky of The Year 

Founded in 2005 and located in North Eastern of Taiwan, Kavalan is the nation's first and the only family owned distillery in the country. The distillery gets its water from the springs of Snow Mountain and Central Mountains which are very pure and clean. The name of Kavalan is from the ancient name of Yi-Lan county where the distillery is located.  

The Vinho is fully matured in used American oak wine barrels that have been toasted and recharred in a way to bring out fruity vanilla notes from the whisky.

Official Tasting Notes

Colour: Deep autumn gold.

 

Nose: A rich fusion of vanilla and caramelised sugars with dark chocolate on top. Ripe melon and mango together with kiwi and a delicate blend of citrus fruits burst. Pepper is also present in the background waiting to be noticed.

 

Palate: Caramel, marzipan, coffee-vanilla, fudge, rich, creamy, dried black fruits. Integrated and surprisingly light. Element of sandalwood. Starts creamy, waters out, almost disappear before rubbing hot brown sugar into the oesophagus. Tiny bitter trace.
