A port harmony. 

Since 2008, Kavalan, named after the earliest tribe that inhabited Yi-Lan county, Taiwan, has looked to represent sincerity, honesty, and the spirit of step-by-step cultivation, with a passionate commitment to creating a series of premium Whiskies.

Being named Best in Class at the 2011 International Wine & Spirits Competition as well as winning 2013 gold from the Beverage Testing Institute (among others) only goes to show how brilliant it is that the Kavalan Concertmaster is available here today. 

The Whisky was first matured in American Oak then transferred for a year to Port casks that previously held Ruby Port, Tawny Port and Vintage Port it results in a mellow, smooth and complex Whisky.

Brett
Brett,
Really smooth. I was impressed and surprised with it. It’s a little sweeter than some other whiskeys but really solid.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Not kidding about dry. But only at first. Let it coat your tongue and savor. Then you can taste the fruit and vanilla. Gets smoother with each sip. Enjoy the sweet oaky smell as you drink it. Fun to try whiskey from the East.

Super complex, yet subtle. Very soft nose, super smooth. Perfect for sipping on the back porch.

My wife says, "Each sip is like a party in my mouth!" Let's hope so! This is a great sipping whiskey for winter nights by the fire. Quite good.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, balanced, Single Malt Taiwanese Whisky with a complex birth, while a rich & dry life, leads to a quick & elegant death.

Kevin,
Not as smooth as expected from a port cask finished whisky.
 
Troy
Troy,
Really delightful. Rich aroma and a taste that develops with time. Very mild and easy to drink.
 
Corey
Corey,
This is a drinkable whiskey. I don’t think it’s great, tastes a bit immature. But its moderately smooth and has some flavor that pops at first but doesn’t linger.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
I enjoyed this one quite a bit. Lots of caramel and oak on the nose. Hints of fruit that I just can't put my finger on. Smooth with just a slight bite. I recommend just a drop of some high quality spring water. I'll be adding this one to the wish list but ultimately it'll come down to price. I'd be willing to pay $60 to $70 but it'd be a stretch at anything above that.

Very nice tasting . Smooth going down and a great sipping whisky.

Sonali,
Very sweet aromatics. Strong flavors of fruit, vanilla, and caramel. Light and smooth body. Drinkable, but doesn't suit my tastes.

Smooth.

Fruit for days with an almost bitter aftertaste, but I’m a good way. Very different and rather enjoyable.

A heavy full flavored whisky. A good break from the rest. It's a great mixer w ginger ale.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
At first sip I would have guessed this to be scotch. It was a heavy Smokey flavor with some sweetness. The next day after the bottle was opened it was a completely different taste it was less smoky and a little sweeter. Overall I do like it but it’s not one of my favorites.

Great whisky! Very smooth and rich
 
Gunnar
Gunnar,
Indeed exotic, pretty simple on first taste and the fruit is sweet and overwhelming at first, but once you get used to it, it's a nice round drink with a twist.
