Straight from the tropical hillsides of Taiwan.

Kavalan just blows our collective Whisky-loving minds. That’s because the state-of-the-art distillery is located among lush green hills on the island of… Taiwan. And this relative newcomer to the pantheon of Single Malt deities is kicking serious Single Malt butt — winning awards and beating some of the most famous Whiskies in blind taste tests. Even Jim Murray himself has become a fan. Kavalan was founded in 2005 by Mr. Tien-Tsai Lee and is now owned by Taiwan’s King Car Group. They have developed a seriously impressive range of Single Malt offerings.

The Solist series holds bottles from their single cask range. This one was matured in hand-picked ex-Bourbon casks and bottled at cask strength. It was non-chill filtered, of course ― lest some of that goodness, unique to each cask, be lost. To peg it as an award-winning bottle would be a gross understatement. This beast has dominated the big competitions year after year. It's smooth, creamy, fresh, and super well balanced with some fantastic surprising notes in there. That coconut is simply a blast! 

Flavor Spiral TM
  • honey honey
  • vanilla vanilla
  • pineapple pineapple
  • spicy spicy
  • oak oak
  • ginger ginger
  • coconut coconut
  • nutty nutty
  • tropical tropical
Appearance / Color
Yellow gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The nose is complex, yet clean and fresh. There are fruity notes galore, ranging from tropical, such as pineapple and banana, to dark fruit. Vanilla, prominent coconut, and oaky spice take it all to another level.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
It's super well-balanced and full-bodied, complex and smooth. The honey sweetness is just right and there's notes of vanilla, pineapple, spicy oak, and ginger.

Finish
The finish is long, spicy, creamy, and slightly nutty with just the right amount of warmth and the gentle tropical notes slowly ringing out.
