A lovely blended malt aged in two cask types to craft an exotic, fruit-forward dram.

When it comes to Whisky in Taiwan, Kavalan seems to get all the attention. But TTL — the Taiwan Tobacco & Liquor Corporation — has been making waves recently. TTL was founded as a bottler, importer, and reseller back in 1947. In 1978 they opened their first distillery. They produce a wide range of specialty Spirits and Wines tailored to the Asian market. But the popularity of Whisky in Taiwan has skyrocketed and the folks just can’t get enough of it, so in 2008 they released their own Single Malt Whisky under their Omar and Jade Supremacy brands — to rave reviews. Since then they have opened the new Nantou Distillery and introduced additional brands.

In Japan, the phrase "blended malt" can mean different things. Sometimes it means Spirit that is produced in different distilleries and sometimes it means Spirit from different batches at the same distillery. Our sources say that Yushan Blended Malt Whisky is made at TTL’s newest distillery — Nantou. More importantly, Yushan Blended Malt Whisky is aged in a combination of ex-Bourbon and Spanish Sherry casks and delivers the best of both with rich toffee and exotic fruit notes.

Smartass Corner:
Yushan is the name of the highest mountain on Taiwan. It’s nearly 13,000 feet at the peak. It is also called "Mount Jade."
