Tasting note

  • Appearance : ambre foncé.
  • Nose : riche, doux et épicé. Marqué par des notes légèrement oxydatives de vin de xérès, de toffee et de caramel au beurre salé, une touche de chocolat se mélange au caractère fruité du distillat. Complexe, il dévoile également des notes de mangue, d'agrumes très mûres et de pomme verte.
  • Palate : douce et riche. Un goût de fudge et de toffee est suivi de notes fruitées et d'arômes de bois fumé.
  • Overall : longue et douce, avec une légère amertume.
The brand

The brand

The Kavalan distillery is named after an ancient tribe that used to the live in the region, in the north-west part of the island of Taiwan. Founded by the King Car Group, Kavalan did not hesitate to call on the services of the best experts in the industry, declaring their intention from the outset to make a whisky of exceptional quality. It was thus with the help of Jim Swann that the distillery produced the first drops of its new-make on 11 March 2006 and brought its first whisky to the market in December 2008. By selecting the best barrels, Kavalan managed to produce a range of single casks (sherry, bourbon and port) in 2009, only three years after it began production, and has already won numerous medals at a variety of international competitions.

The line

The Solist range brings together the most exclusive bottlings of Kavalan Taiwanese whisky. Bottled from a single cask, with no dilution, these single malt whiskies are always aged in one type of cask, stored in the cellars of the distillery of the same name in a tropical climate. Kavalan juggles with four kinds of cask to age its whiskies (bourbon, fino sherry, oloroso sherry and vinho barrique), but they are all identified by a series of figures that give more information about the ageing process. For example, for Kavalan Sherry Soloist 57.8%, the cask number S060821045 tells us the following: S = sherry, 060821 = date of distillation (21 August 2006), 045 = cask number. The bottling date is shown on the back of the bottle.
