An LMDW exclusive

For most experts, the cask plays a key role in developing a whisky’s palette of flavours and aromas. At Kavalan, due to the extreme weather conditions (over 10% angel’s share per year), the maturation of “Solist” versions has become an art. To better highlight this influence, in May 2019, the distillery opened its first “Cask Strength Whisky Bar” in Taipei, in Zonshghan’s business district, recreating the atmosphere of a maturation warehouse. This multi-faceted version aged in new oak has no hesitation in exploring the exuberant world of rums and the intensely vanilla and spicy world of American rye whiskeys in order to increase its sweetness and presence. With impressive length, it maintains a very pleasant fresh expression from start to finish.

Profile: the creamy first nose is characterized by notes of mustard grain, pine resin and dried apricot. Allowed to breathe, it becomes increasingly medicinal (ointment), as barley sugar fills the air. The distinguished attack wonderfully reveals a herbaceous (cut hay), fruity (gooseberry) and vanilla finesse. The slightly tannic finish is chocolatey, liquorice and mentholated. Like a great American rye. The end of the finish is fruity (white peach).

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : topaz with orange glints.
  • Nose : rich, unctuous. On the first nose, mustard seed, pine resin and dried apricot form an extremely intense trio of aromas. Allowed to breathe, it becomes increasingly medicinal (ointment). At the same time, barley sugar and even cane sugar fill the air. Gradually, ripe banana, kaffir lime and mango bring the aromatic palette lots of exoticism.
  • Palate : distinguished, dynamic. With incredible finesse, the attack is at once herbaceous (cut hay), fruity (ripe pear, gooseberry) and vanilla. On the mid-palate, vanilla pods literally burst across the palate. In parallel, the same barley sugar found on the nose and pink peppercorns are placed on the taste buds. Full of freshness, the very end of the palate is balsamic (vinegar, cedar).
  • Overall : long, slightly tannic. At the start of the finish, vanilla has made way for dark chocolate, liquorice and peppermint. At this point, there are clear parallels with an excellent American rye. Invigorated by the acidity of the fresh fruit (greengage plum, white peach), the end of the palate is softly spicy (ginger, cinnamon). On the retro-nasal olfaction, various aromatic plants (coriander, dill, chervil) take centre-stage. The empty glass reveals grated ginger, very ripe banana, curry and iris butter aromas.

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.
