Single Malt, Taiwan / Yilan County, 70cl, Ref: 19822

Distilled in August 2006, this cask was jointly selected by The Nectar and La Maison du Whisky and is one of the Kavalan distillery’s oldest. Like dust hovering in a ray of sunshine, its woody flavours poetically weave their way through the flavour and aromatic palette. Still-fresh figs, heady flowers and an invigorating salinity are scattered throughout, beautifully highlighting the remarkable maturity of this version that ultimately leads us back into the still room.

Single Cask # S060821055 - Oloroso Sherry Limited edition Profile: dense, rich. A sweet/sour duality gives the palette lots of energy. Crushed red fruits (strawberry, raspberry).

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : mahogany
  • Nose : full-bodied, rich. A blend of dark chocolate and noble spices (cardamom, ginger), the opening is also fruity (caramelized apple tart, bitter orange) and floral (lily). Develops into mustard seed and chestnut honey. This tangy/sweet combination lends it significant energy. It is also reminiscent of crushed red berries (strawberry, raspberry) or fresh figs.
  • Palate : dense, silky. Deliciously tannic, it coasts the palate in a fine layer of something chocolatey and roasted (coffee, tea). The mid-palate breaks down into cocoa powder, cinnamon and concentrate of iris. Mentholated and empyreumatic notes (eucalyptus, cedar) gradually take over.
  • Overall : long, silky. The presence of vine peaches, orange zest and oriental spices bring poetry and juiciness. Its vinosity and salinity showcase the quality of the oloroso sherry cask ageing. The retro-nasal olfaction reveals spices, nuts and chocolate before reducing them to a powder. The empty glass is powerful and spiced, bringing us back to the distillate.
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.
