About Liqueurs from Taiwan
A recent phenomenon in Taiwan has been the production of single malt whisky. Not just any single malt, mind you, but some that have been acclaimed as among the world's best. All this in just a few short years. The single malts from Taiwan are made in an intense, yet elegant style that emphasize strong and complex fruit and spice flavors from the distillate and especially the oak, were the tropical climate of the island has a huge influence and greatly accelerates maturation. While single malt whisky in Taiwan is a small industry at present, look for it to grow.

Opaque taupe color. Creamy, fruity aromas and flavors of papaya-banana custard, caramel gelato, warm eggnog, and delicate spices with a satiny, bright, moderately sweet medium body and a smooth, delightful, medium-length pistachio ice cream and whole milk finish. A nice creamy liqueur with a fruity, tropical twist.
