Product details

A Taiwanese whisky from the Kavalan range, produced at the King Car Distillery! ‘Kavalan’ is the former name of what is now known as the Yi-Lan County, where the distillery is based, and its first expression was launched in 2008. The high humidity and temperatures (the top floor of the maturation warehouse can soar to 45°C!) mean that the whisky battles with an angel’s share of up to 15% each year. Because this increases the wood and spirit interaction, all of Kavalan’s whisky is matured exclusively in American oak, which is gentler than its European counterpart.

This is the Port Cask Finish release from its Concertmaster series, made with whiskies initially matured in American oak before being finished in a range of Ruby Port, Tawny Port, and vintage Port casks. It’s jammy fruit, dry spices, and wood influence galore here!
