Kavalan ex Bourbon Cask will make you believe that Taiwanese wear kilts.

If you have not heard of Kavalan yet, get ready for us to blow your Whisky-loving mind. That’s because Kavalan Distillery is located on the island of… Taiwan. And this relative newcomer to the pantheon of single malt deities is kicking serious single malt butt — winning awards and beating some of the most famous Whiskies in blind taste tests. Even Jim Murray himself has become a fan. Kavalan was founded in 2005 by Mr. Tien-Tsai Lee and is now owned by Taiwan’s King Car Group. They have developed a range of eighteen single malt offerings.

Let’s start by saying that Kavalan ex Bourbon Cask has won just about every gold medal that you can think of, and a rare platinum one too. They take their exceptional single cask Solist Whisky and cut it a bit with natural spring water. As far as we are concerned, this Taiwanese gem is just perfect! And as the name implies, it is aged exclusively in ex-Bourbon casks.

Smartass Corner:
“Kavalan” is the name of an ancient indigenous people that inhabited the Yilan province of Taiwan.

Matthew,
Unimpressed. Some nice notes, but overall the alcohol content was too high at 58.6% and the finish was harsh. I'd like to see what they can do at 80 proof.

This is fantastic bottle for the price. Smooth, with a bit of spicy. It lives on the same shelf as my Yamazaki 12
