Kavalan Premium Single Cask Strength Single Malt PX Sherry Cask
Kavalan // Taiwan
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. Note: As this is a single cask expression, there will be slight variations in ABV and flavors. This is reviewed from a bottle at 55.6% ABV.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask Typeex-Pedro Ximénez sherry
"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."
