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.

Smartass Corner:

Ratings & Reviews
I’ve had about 4 bottles of this through the years and it is always consistently excellent. Vanilla and caramel are prominent and if you have it on the rocks the flavor changes drastically as you drink from start to finish.
This won some stellar international awards. But it tasted too much like mulled wine finished/liquid christmas fuitcake for me. Dry. Baking spices. Cinnamon. Raisins. This may be your thing (like how some of my friends came coming back for more) but just ain't my thing. A good lesson for me in that whisky is a very personal matter.
