Started the production in 2008, The King Car Distillery showed another part of the world that can make good whisky. Despite every award this whisky collected, it also emerges with its distinct aroma and qualified taste.
Sub mid tropical climate in Taiwan matures this whisky in almost 4 years. Which is quite short when compared to Scotch single malt whiskies. When thought of other Kavalan bottles in the market, this dram is more reachable but still an entry level, all rounded whisky.
The down side of this bottle is honestly coming back to this bottle after tasting a Kavalan Solist. Kavalan sets the bar a little bit high for Kavalan Single Malt expression. So enjoy while you can, though I will say, don’t try the Kavalan Port Finish Concertmaster
