Kavalan ages its whisky in the hot and humid climate of Yilan, Taiwan. This subtropical environment accelerates the maturation of the spirit, ensuring a richer, more complex drop in terms of body and flavour. Kavalan refer to this unique ripening process as Maturity Redefined which creates the signature character and style of their whisky.
Tasting Note: Deep mahogany. Clean and complex with multiple layers of dried fruit, nuttiness and spices with some marzipan and vanilla touches to it as well. Smooth, well-balanced natural sweetness, full of pleasant dried fruit and spices and long finish.
