In Whisky by Whisky MonsterLeave a Comment

Country: Taiwan
Distillery: King Car
Type: Single Malt
Cask: Port Cask
ABV: 40%

Nose: Floral notes with raisins, grape pase, green plums and dried candies.
Palate: Round and balanced. Dried fruits, grassy feeling with honey and grapy taste.
Finish: Filled with spice. Cloves, nutmeg and a dry finish with fragile red fruits.

This particular Kavalan is very interesting with its name especially to a musician like me. Though I’d prefer a classic single malt bottle of Kavalan. Port casks are a merit when they are used, but the wine inside the cask is very important too. Even though in IWSC 2011, this won the ‘Best Of Class’ award, I guess the main reason is the success of King Car.

Starting with the nose you are expecting something big, though it is mostly closed even if you swirl it a lot. The taste is OK, like a port. It has a cheap regular finish. Definitely not worth the price.
