King Car Distillery originates from Yuanshan, Taiwan. Construction of the distillery was completed and the distillery started production on March 11th, 2006.

It has been a leader in researching the effects of tropical maturation, with Kavalan whisky losses averaging around 15 percent per annum. The Solist Whisky series is a range of single cask, cask-strength whiskies aged entirely in the barrels for which the whisky is aged, in this case Fino Sherry.

Tasting Notes

"A rich and winey opening on the nose, dark sugars atop a bed of fruits in the hot summer sun. On the tongue, it is full and rich with dark plums, cherries, cinnamon, toffee and cinnamon-raisin toast coming through and surprisingly the palate with their vigor. The finish is long and well spiced, tingling the tongue with Muscat-soaked nuts and cream that rests perfectly on the tongue."
