Kavalan ‘Hexagon’ Pot Still Miniature Selection 6 x 50ml
From the Taiwanese distillery Kavalan, this miniature gift pack consists of :
● Kavalan Brandy Oak 54% 50ml
It is matured completely in ex-Brandy casks. The nose is fruity and sweet with orange marmalade, honey, soft spices, and a hint of dark chocolate. The taste is fruity and vibrant with orange marmalade, a touch of white pepper, honey, dark chocolate, and a hint of pencil shavings. The finish has lingering spices and a touch of orange marmalade.
● Kavalan Bourbon Oak 54% 50ml
Kavalan’s Solist Bourbon releases are known for being big, bold and rich. The Bourbon Oak is selected from the same parcels of casks, but diluted with Kavalan spring water to 46%. It’s still rich in flavour with notes of vanilla, coconut and tropical fruit.
● Kavalan Peaty Oak 50% 50ml
This expression is allowed to mature in casks that previously matured peated whisky – which has imparted a helping of smoke and earthy notes to this single malt whisky.
●Kavalan Wine Oak 54% 50ml
Kavalan Vinho Barrique is part of the Solist range, a collection of the distillery’s best cask strength bottlings, and is aged solely in American oak barrels that have previously contained wine (both red and white). The barrels are re-toasted to allow the whisky to absorb their tannins as much as possible, adding highly complex notes to this version.
● Kavalan Sherry Oak 54% 50ml
You know how good the multi-award winning Kavalan Solist Sherry matured releases are? Well the whisky that goes into this permanent addition to the range is the same, brought down to a bottling strength of 46% using Kavalan spring water!
● Kavalan Fino Sherry Oak 54% 50ml
Single cask Taiwanese whisky matured in a top quality Fino Sherry butt. The whisky is pretty darned good, named the Best New World Single Malt Whisky in 2012 by the World Whiskies Awards and Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
