Established in 2005, Kavalan is Taiwan’s first whiskymaker, with their Kavalan Concertmaster named Best in Class at the 2011 International Wine & Spirit Competition. This single malt whisky showcases Ruby Port, Tawny Port and Vintage Port casks from Portugal to finish whiskies that were initially matured in American oak.
Red grapes and clove, followed by a good whack of vanilla. A little bit of tobacco leaf and cookie dough.
Brown sugar mixed with ground cinnamon and white pepper, doused in good Port. A core of white oak warmth.
Raisins, prunes, strawberry jam and another pinch of tobacco.
