From the award-winning distillery in Taiwan, Kavalan Single Malt is their entry-level bottling. Being matured in six different cask types, the nose is reminiscent of a quality Blended Scotch. Very fruity with ripe oranges, mango and pineapple at first, the aroma turns more floral and honeyed upon adding a little water. Werther's Original drops, maple syrup and measured oak influence characterize the rather simple taste of this young malt. The finish is quick, chocolaty and slightly bitter. An interesting but very 'engineered' whisky with a hefty price tag.
