Premium Best Sherried Whisky - Malt Maniacs Awards 2014 - 91/100

Tasting note

  • Appearance : acajou à reflets verdâtres.
  • Nose : profond, intense. Du pruneau, du camphre, des cerises à l’eau de vie, du chocolat noir, du toffee, de l’eucalyptus, de la noix grillée, du safran, des graines de moutarde, du bâton de réglisse, de nombreux fruits rouges et noirs, de la cire d’abeille, ... Voilà ce que propose avec force persuasion le nez magnifique de cette version. Et ce n’est pas tout, car il se prolonge sur les fruits secs (figue, datte), la tubéreuse et les agrumes (orange, mandarine).
  • Palate : large et profonde à la fois. Magnifiquement poudrée (cacao, safran), ses tannins veloutés enrobent les papilles de chocolat noir, de caramel au beurre salé et de réglisse verte. Capiteuse, elle évolue sur les fruits secs et exotiques (mangue très mûre, banane flambée). Plus loin, des oranges viennent rafraîchir le palais de leur jus sucré. Seule référence à la jeunesse de ce distillat, des épices, notamment le clou de girofle viennent titiller le bout de la langue.
  • Overall : concentrée à l’extrême et en même temps d’une grande fraîcheur, elle fait preuve de beaucoup de salinité. Mentholée et poivrée, elle est également fruitée (mûre, cassis), elle évolue sur des notes torréfiées (café, moka) et florales (rose, pivoine). La rétro olfaction est marquée par le chocolat amer et par la noix, le verre vide est fruité (myrtille, prune) et végétal (tabac à pipe).
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.
