Taiwan's whisky wins again

Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2017 has named Kavalan "Asian Whisky of the Year" for its Solist Moscatel Sherry Single Cask Strength, as part of about 4,600 whiskies rated in the latest 25th edition.

Kavalan's Moscatel has proved popular this year too, scooping gold at the World Whiskies Awards, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the International Spirits Challenge, and the International Review of Spirits.

The 2017 Whisky Bible result makes it a hat trick for Kavalan, which has won the award twice previously in 2014 for its Podium and in 2015 for the Kavalan Classic Single Malt.  

And this is where it comes from Yilan County in north-eastern Taiwan.

The Kavalan Distillery in Taiwan has been dedicated to the art of single malt whisky since 2006 and is the recipient of more than 210 gold awards or above. Aged in American oak bottles in intense humidity and heat, Kavalan also benefits from sea and mountain breezes and the Snow Mountain's spring water, which combine to create Kavalan Whisky's signature creaminess. 

Kavalan takes its name from the old name for Yilan County and is backed by 30 years of beverage-making thanks to parent company, King Car Group. It is available in 40 countries.

Visit the distillery and you could taste these. 

Kavalan founder Mr YT Lee said his master blender, Ian Chang , describes Moscatel as "fruit jams on brownie cake."

"The nose on the Moscatel is floral, rich in honey and sweets, has a touch of toffee and caramel. On the palate, it's dry fruit and nutty flavours. We'd describe it as creamy, silky smooth buttery with chocolate notes," said Mr Lee.
