Kavalan Soloist Vinho Barrique Cask Whisky
Kavalan, the name from the east, was the first Taiwanese whisky ever produced. The whole story began in the early 2000s, when the world was just starting to talk about Asian whisky. The King Car Group had a clear vision to build something different on the island. They arrived on the market at the right time, just when the whisky world was looking for something new and different. Whisky lovers around the world were ready to see what Asian distilleries had to offer and Kavalan was happy to oblige.
One of the distillery’s flagship products is the Kavalan Soloist Vinho Barrique Cask. It is one of the premium products from Kavalan, and the unique flavors will stay firmly in your memory. The sweet aromas are rich with tropical fruit, vanilla, caramel sauce, and dark chocolate. The flavors include walnuts, more chocolate, and spices that linger on the palate and finish with fruity notes and tart citrus along with zesty pepper spice.
The Soloist was named the “World’s Best Single Malt” and “Best Asian Single Malt” in 2015 by the prestigious World Whiskies Awards (WWA) and won the Double Gold Medal in the San Francisco Wine and Spirit Competition in 2017, and Platinum in 2019. This bottle gives you a glimpse of the Asian culture that created it via the barrel that was selected and the climate that helped the whisky mature. The tropical aromas, fruity, rich, and spicy flavors, and deep gold color add a vibrant element to the tasting experience.
