An intriguing release from Taiwan's King Car distillery, presented as part of their Kavalan Solist range. This expression is allowed to mature in casks that previously matured peated whisky - which has imparted a helping of smoke and earthy notes to this single malt whisky.
Subtropical fruitiness such as mango and green apple lurking in the complex background is to be perceived together with hints of honey, cherry, white pepper and grape. The finale is a long and sustainable after-taste encored over and over again. A finish to be experienced with patience. This is a malt that stirs emotions and redefines sensory perception.
Taiwan, Yilan County.
