Founded in 2005 by the King Car Group, Kavalan is the first and only whisky distillery in Taiwan. Named for the earliest tribe that inhabited the land around the distillery, Kavalan has a passionate commitment to creating premium whisky. Currently they have the capacity to produce roughly 1.2 million liters of spirits per year using their 12,000 liter wash still (used for the first distillation) and their 7,000 liter spirits still (for final distillation). While they mainly age their whisky in first-fill bourbon barrels, they have also find success with aging in sherry butts and hogsheads, port barriques, and former wine casks. Due to the local climate, the whisky matures rapidly and, as a result they have been able to offer an impressive range of spirits in their short tenure.
If you've ever wanted a big Sherry-bomb whisky, this is the bottle for you. Aged in Oloroso cask, this is the darkest whisky we've seen this year, it looks like an Amaro in your glass. Replete with raisiny fruits, nutty overtones, the palate is rich, oily and packed with vanilla and spiced fudge and finishes with a hint of freshly roasted coffee beans. This is an absolute stunner, and one whisky you'll want to stockpile, we may not see another like this for a while. **Very Limited Availability**
