KAVALAN Wine Cask The Little Big Book 59,4%

Single Malt Whisky, Taiwan / Yilan County, 70cl, Ref: 56318

Quantity limited to 2 bottle(s) by client.

At Kavalan, the wash stills have a capacity of 12,000 litres and the spirit stills a capacity of 7,000 litres. During the second distillation, a large percentage of the foreshots and feints are removed to create a new make with a rich and complex aromatic profile. Aged in casks previously containing a wine from a very famous Bordeaux appellation, this version aged 6.5 years begins by revealing oaky essences of a rare nobility. Next, like porcini mushrooms rooted deep in the soil, it reveals a particularly mouth-watering salinity and freshness.

the refined initial nose is apricoty and spicy (nutmeg). Allowed to breathe, it becomes floral (peony), chocolatey and vinous (grape). The energetic attack is characterized by notes of forest floor (moss), black cherry and praline. The exotic mid-palate is dominated by a single fruit: melon. The long finish is remarkably fresh. Slightly earthy, it brings harvest times to mind (black grape).

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : pink copper.
  • Nose : refined, precise. The magnificent first nose wavers between eucalyptus, cedar, dried apricot and nutmeg. Allowed to breathe, it becomes floral (peony, carnation). Dark chocolate, pink peppercorn, melon and black grape flavours then bring lots of harmony to the aromatic palette. Later, oak and wax notes highlight the quality and noble expression of the wood. The red wine’s influence is nonetheless implicit.
  • Palate : clear, lively. The particularly elegant attack takes us to the forest floor (dried leaves, moss). Continuing on, dark fruits (grape, ripe cherry) and spices (ginger, cardamom) appear alongside incredibly rich praline and vanilla flavours. Then, on the mid-palate, melon makes a strong comeback. It is accompanied by mango and guava notes that add an exotic touch. The herbaceous end of the palate is characterized by gentian and rosemary.
  • Overall : long, balanced. Standing as one with the end of the palate, the start of the finish for a long time maintains the pleasant sensation of freshness emanating from the flavour palette. A fine note of earth also adds robustness. The very fruity retro-nasal olfaction takes us to harvest time, with Merlot grapes tumbling from the grape-pickers’ baskets. The empty glass is liquorice, roasted (tobacco) and heady (lime blossom, bay leaf).

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.
