King Car distillery in Yuanshan is about an hour’s drive from Taipei. Taiwan’s sub-tropical climate nourishes exotic fruit essences in the local fruits and in Kavalan whisky too. Add Pedro Ximénez barrels – PX is an ultra-sweet dessert sherry from Spain – and you have a genuine fruit bomb.

Tasting Notes

"A slight sharpness from the alcohol cuts through the dark fruitiness of the nose - it is full of cigar tobacco, worn leather chairs, and stewed breakfast prunes. Sweet and filthy-rich dark fruits are wakened by brisk white pepper. What a lovely balance. Water flattens the nose but brings new breadth to the palate."
