The charm of Kavalan Solist is winning the hearts & souls around the world.

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!

So, been looking for something exciting in the world of whisky lately for your Homebar upgrade? Look no further than the Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique. It has won more than a dozen international awards! Fully matured in both red and white wine re-toasted casks and bottled at cask strength by King Car Distillery, this bottle is living proof that Taiwanese Whisky is becoming more than a force to reckon with. Give this bad boy a year or two—it just might unseat the legendary Pappy Van Winkle.

Smartass Corner:

Ratings & Reviews
Thanks Jim
Hmmm, this is good, but is it THAT good to win some top accolades? I happen to think so! Dark chocolate, almost rum-raisinesque flavours, viscous and chewy. Alas I have run out, and to acquire a new bottle is dear. Used to cost me about US$100 at most.
It is an outstanding, medium, Taiwanese Single Malt Whisky that has a rich birth with notes of tropical fruit, creamy vanilla, caramelized sugar, dark chocolate & pepper; while a delicate life adds notes of citrus, kiwi, melon, sweet mango, white pepper & toasted oak; that leads to a long & warming death with notes of coconut, plum & berry.
Ruby to start; use a big rock and it slowly turns to a deep, milky caramel color. Rich vanilla and burnt sugar.
