Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique Cask
Kavalan ages its whisky in the hot and humid climate of Yilan, Taiwan.
This subtropical environment accelerates the maturation of the new make spirit, ensuring a richer, more complex drop in terms of body and flavour.
Vinho is fully matured in used American oak wine barrels that have been toasted and re-charred in a way that brings out fruity vanilla notes from the whisky and wood overlaid on a delicate background of complex fruitiness.
The casks have been used to mature both red and white wines which eventually will contribute the background complex fruitiness to Kavalan Solist Vinhos. It is complex and multi dimensional background of pepper, spice, dates and other fruits, such as ripe melon and mango together with kiwi and a delicate blend of citrus fruits burst.
