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 orange, mango and pineapple at first, the aroma turns more floral and honeyed upon adding a little water. Sweet caramel (Werther's Original), maple syrup and measured cask influence characterize the rather one-dimensional taste of this young malt. The finish is quick, chocolaty and slightly bitter. An interesting but very 'engineered' whisky with a hefty price tag.

Comment: Very good malt in deed. Very surprising a young aged malt can bring such a complicated yet fulfilling mouth feel. Can be considered as an outstanding Speyside malt.
