Kavalan Sherry Oak Single Malt Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Kavalan Sherry Oak Single Malt Whisky

The term "Kavalan" refers to some of the earliest inhabitants of Taiwan, who settled the modern-day Yilan County during the 16th century. Legend has it that the Kavalan arrived by sea from the east and upon seeing the stunning beauty of Taiwan, decided to settle the bountiful land.Kavalan Sherry Oak Taiwanese Single Malt Whisky is crafted by the King Car Group, which was established in Taiwan in 1956. The Whisky is made entirely in Taiwan from malted barley that is imported from Scotland. Once the grains arrive in Taiwan, they are milled and mashed, before being fermented with water drawn from springs situated in the Central and Snowy Mountain ranges. This incredibly pure and quintessentially Taiwanese water source adds slightly mineral, round flavors to the Whisky. Following fermentation, the wash is distilled through lantern-shaped copper-pot stills that were previously used at the Glenlivet Distillery. Due to the small size and shape of the stills, the Whisky interacts with the copper, resulting in an incredibly pure and fruity flavor profile.After the Whisky has been distilled, it is aged for approximately three years in casks that were previously used to mature sherry. The Whisky has an aroma of red fruits, sherry and oak, which gives way to notes of fresh tobacco, chewy leather and spice cake on the palate. The finish is dense and robust, with hints of citrus, cloves and ginger.Kavalan Sherry Oak Taiwanese Single Malt Whisky earned the Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2014.Pick up a bottle today!
