KAVALAN 7 ans 2016 Vinho Barrique New Vibrations 58,6%
Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique was praised for its exceptional quality, complexity and generosity, in 2015 by the Worls Whiskies Awards jury. The use of vinho barrique casks, which were previously used to age red wine, brings unique characteristics to the whisky. The abundant fruit notes in the aromatic and taste profile are frequently mentioned, testifying to the richness of this limited edition.
Nose: Full-bodied and racy. Slightly camphorated, with floral notes of mauve lilac and geranium, fruity notes of muscat grape and black cherry, and a touch of pepper. With aeration, the addition of citrus fruits such as orange and clementine, as well as exotic fruits like plantain and roasted pineapple, enrich the aromatic palette.
Palate: Lively and slender. On the attack, a harmonious combination of red fruit (raspberry, strawberry) and cocoa flavors evolves into notes of dried fruit, melon and toffee.
Finish: Long and balanced. Fruity freshness persists with notes of wild strawberry and papaya, with a powdery touch of cocoa, ginger and nutmeg. On the aftertaste, a noble woodiness and the ripeness of the fruit come to the fore.
Owned by the King Car Group, the first Taiwanese distillery opened in 2002 in Yi-Lan province, north-eastern Taiwan. In order to release the best whisky with an inimitable style, they knew to surround themselves with the best experts. The profile of Kavalan’s single malt is fruity, floral, fresh and subtle spicy. This is a result of using unsmoked malted barley from Scotland, as well as a particularly short heating time. Ian Chang, the master blender of the distillery, captures in the distillate the purest aromas that make Kavalan a great signature, with richness and elegance.
