KAVALAN Vinho Barrique Whisky Live Paris 2020 59,4%
Single Malt Whisky, Taiwan / Yilan County, 70cl, Ref: 57778
The Kavalan distillery owns its own cooperage, where it prepares STR (shave-toast-rechar) casks that have a strong influence on the final character of its single malt. After the Solist Vinho Barrique version, which was named Whisky of the Year at the 2015 World Whisky Awards, and those selected for our 2020 Creation Catalogue, we now invite you to discover this new opus, whose smooth, original palette of flavours and aromas could almost be mistaken for a venerable vintage port. This is reflected in the sudden appearance of notes of black cherry and candied fig.

- Appearance : burnt sienna.
- Nose : concentrated, opulent. The aromatic palette is so dense that it needs to be broken down into three sequences. 1st sequence: salted butter caramel, grilled walnut, dark chocolate, candied fig. 2nd sequence: balsamic vinegar, apricot stone, Russian leather, blood orange. 3rd sequence: aromas of liqueur wine, quinquina, tarte tatin and pipe tobacco.
- Palate : creamy, balanced. The attack creates the pleasant sensation of chewing on caramel bonbons. With incredible smoothness, it develops notes of Corinthian raisin and mocha. Next, a fruity (cherry, prune) and chocolate rancio brings lots of energy to a mid-palate with incredible length. Gradually, the taste buds are coated in lime blossom and heather honeys.
- Overall : long, fleshy. The empyreumatic start of the finish is characterized by notes of apricot stone, roasted fig and toffee. As a dessert, fans will particularly enjoy the poire Belle-Hélène that rises from the very end of the finish. On the retro-nasal olfaction, zan liquorice sweets, iris butter and recollections of fortified wine (Rasteau) refresh the palate. Nobly spicy (saffron, cardamom), the empty glass reveals moving aromas of antique furniture
- 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.
