Dark amber color. Aromas of charred raisins, marcona almonds, dried olives, butterscotch, and clove cigarettes with a round, lively, fruity full body and a peppery, layered, long salted orange liqueur, polished mahogany, chocolate covered cherries, sandalwood, marinated red pepper, and spiced cider finish. A richly flavored and boldly textured whiskey for toasts and celebrations.

Remarkably constructed in only 9 months in 2015, the Kavalan distillery is Taiwan's first whisky distillery. Despite their relative youth, the malt whiskies made at Kavalan are amazingly flavorful, complex, world-class spirits—modeled after Scottish single malts—that are a product of ingenuity, Scottish tradition and ingredients, and the unique tropical Taiwanese climate that accelerates the aging process.
