Kavalan 2007 Peaty Cask TWE Exclusive
Kavalan, the Taiwanese powerhouse of whisky, is a distillery i've actually had a good many times before, but for some reason this is actually the first time I've reviewed one on site, so i need to go back through my stocks and post reviews soon.
This is a seriously tasty dram with hubba bubba bubble gum and chocolate mixing with Cinder toffee and other sweet treats, unusual, sweet, tasty and a hint smoky and earthy, this is a seriously tasty whisky and if you're looking for something interesting this is one you could do well to pick up and try.
Available exclusively, and in stock, from The Whisky Exchange.
Thanks to The Whisky Exchange for the official sample .
Cinder toffee and tropical fruit Hubba Bubba bubble gum, chantilly cream, subtle iodine and hints of medicinal notes, cured seafood and a well cleaned fish market, a touch of smooth milk chocolate, a very clean smell
A definite salty smoke that sticks to the roof of your mouth, hints of bamboo shoots and water chestnut from a stir fry, dry but with a fruity note of tinned peaches
Clean smooth milk chocolate, spices and some citrus bathroom cleaning fluids
