In ancient times, the land of Yilan was called “Kavalan”, a noble terrain protected by the soaring snow mountain range and the fertile Lanyang Plain. Remote and subtropical, this piece of land lies in the northeastern corner of Taiwan, where abundant rainfall and water filtered through Yilan’s rich volcanic soil collide to provide Kavalan‘s mineral-rich water source. The history and terroir of this land are combined to create this exquisite whisky for you.
About this whisky
Port is a Portuguese fortified wine that is robust and sweet with a full and rich body. It is therefore usually served as a dessert wine or digestif. Kavalan Solist Port Cask is fully matured in Portuguese Port barriques in Taiwan’s subtropical climate to create multiple fruity flavours such as plum, blueberry, blackberry and strawberry, with chocolate as the main background note.
Nose: The rich fruity and nutty flavor combined and enhanced by orange and citrus notes that can be enjoyed together with gentle and elegant wood spices from our American oak.
Palate: Satisfying fruitiness blended with quality chocolate aromas that melt delicately on your palate. A wonderful and long lasting aftertaste.
