Nose

Vanille. Une note étrange d'éther et de papier qui heureusement se tasse. Fruits mûrs - prunes, melon. Il devient opulent, avec des copeaux de bois.

Taste

Vanille à nouveau, il est fluide et sucré, tout en manquant un peu de poids. Simple et efficace.

Finish

Belle corpulence. Epicé. La vanille prend une dimension vraiment supérieure ! Et persistant avec ça.

Acetone
If you put whisky and Taiwan in one sentence, chances are you are talking about Kavalan. But since 2008 the Nantou Distillery – a state owned company – also produces whisky and by now two of their bottles can be found in my neck of the woods: the Omar Bourbon and the Omar Sherry. Let’s give those a try, staring with the bourbon version.
The nose is rather closed and only after several minutes of hand warmth does it offer up some floral aromas, vanilla, sweet barley, white sugar, sweetened butter and the crust of a bread that was overbaked. Not bad, but far from good. Notes of acetone of wood glue ruin the experience for me.
The mouthfeel is somewhere between watery and oily. I would not have minded a little more body. It is light in taste, somewhat fresh and sweet on white (mostly apples) and loads of honey. Some spices kick in: pepper, nutmeg and ginger. A touch of oak. A grape pith bitterness.
I would classify the finish as medium long, but quite bitter and mildly dry.
An interesting alternative from Taiwain, but it still has a long way to go before it can compete with even a standard release from Kavalan. Unfortunately already 80 EUR, which is way too expensive for this whisky.

Color
Old gold
Nose

Pear and ripe pineapple, honey malt with a touch of fruit vinegar, a touch of cola, vanilla and milk chocolate, green apples and hay, citrus and zest, and savory herbs (sage/dill) and green grain.

Taste

Mixed cereal grains, citrus and barrel char, honey liqueur and oak, and brown sugar.

Finish

Slow fade to dark chocolate, soft vanilla-rich oak tannins, and fresh hay with a hint of green malt sour-sweetness. 

Comments

There is a discernible quality to the whisky and the casks used to mature it. In Taiwan, it's not as expensive, so quality for price is much more reasonable. I found that a teaspoon of water to about a 50ml measure tones down the citrus and fruit notes and accentuates the honey malt and vanilla on the nose. The palate takes a few minutes after adding the water, but it becomes more bourbon like. Cherries and brown sugar with a touch of vanilla, but there's still that green malt sour-sweetness.
