‘Gold’ IWSC 2014.
An elegant whisky that delivers richness, length and heaps of tropical fruit notes. With aromas of lush tropical fruits like papaya, mango, pineapple, and banana. Notes of plum, citrus, caramel, honey and vanilla. A warming and vibrant, medium-full bodied whisky with coconut, dark chocolate with roasted almonds, and a complex, buttery and oak finish.
In ancient times, the land around I-Lan in Taiwan was called Kavalan, a mysterious land that was solely inhabited by the indigenous people of the Kavalan clan. The name was officially recognized by the Emperor of the Chin dynasty in the year of 1809 when the original city was also built under the same name.
Kavalan had always been kept protected from the outside world by the Syue-shan mountain range which is abundant in high quality natural water that comes from deep within the mountain range. The mists of Kavalan and the spirits of the past have been created for you in this exquisite whisky. The process water is drawn from the springs in the Snow Mountain and Central Mountains imparting a smooth and creamy mouth feel to the whisky.
