Kavalan Single Malt Whisky and U.S. importer Hotaling & Co. announce the arrival of Kavalan Distillery Select in the U.S. for $60 SRP, 43% ABV, beginning September 2018. It is the First Kavalan Whisky created for mixing cocktails.
“Kavalan Distillery Select is matured in select malt neutral casks to showcase the fruitiness and sub-tropical characteristic of Taiwan’s climate without too much influence from the wood,” says Master Blender, Ian Chang. “We simplified our recipe to create the purest and creamiest of whiskies with rich and complex layers to further endorse our rigorous cask policy. The formula also presents notes of green apple, mango, pineapple, and cherry resulting in a versatile Kavalan suitable for mixing and enjoying neat.”
Kavalan Single Malt Whisky, the award-winning distillery located in Taiwan’s Yilan County, has established a reputation for exploring an array of styles and their impact on maturation in Taiwan’s sub-tropical climate. Featuring Kavalan’s signature fruity sweetness and full body, Kavalan Distillery Select has been aged in quality casks to lock in rich layers of butterscotch, toffee and warm vanilla that intensify into a long, encored finish. Delicate and silky on the nose, with aromas of ripened tropical fruit, the whisky offers a balanced and easy to drink profile that captures the purest in the distillate.
