If you set out to craft the perfect Single Malt dram, this is what you’d make.

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 and all of them are uhmmm... Azing!

Kavalan Solist Sherry Cask has won twenty major international awards since its first release in 2010. It’s got it all… delicate Single Malt, expertly distilled, aged first fill Oloroso Sherry casks, and bottled on-site at cask strength — 57.8% ABV — without artificial coloring or chill filtration. Admit it… if you set out to craft the perfect Single Malt dram, that’s probably the list of specifications you would use. If you asked us to describe Kavalan Solist Sherry Cask in one word, that word would be “impressive.” If you give us a few more words, we’d say deep, complex, balanced, and luscious.

Ratings & Reviews
Michael
Michael,
This was my entry bottle into Taiwanese whiskey. I typically enjoy Sherry cask finishes and so chose this variety. While i enjoyed several fruity notes to this whiskey, it became a bit too sweet for me to love with the cherry undertones coming through a bit too heavy. This was excellent to try as new sensation but in the long run not quite compatible with my pallet.

One of the best, the bottle in the photo is not the sherry cask, it's the bourbon cask.
