Kavalan Distillery, a Taiwanese pioneer of single malt whisky since 2005, has launched its Triple Sherry Cask, a rare combination of Oloroso, Pedro Ximénez (PX) and Moscatel-aged casks with Kavalan's velvety texture and signature sweetness.
After fully maturing in three sherry casks, Triple Sherry Cask showcases a three-stage balancing craft in the marrying vats. The process allows the three whiskies, each fully matured in the three different sherry casks to rest and meld together in perfect fusion, locking in optimal smoothness.
"This is the first time we've combined our whisky in three different sherry casks. It's all about multiplying and enriching the sherry flavours to make a distinct whisky that has dried fruits, rich caramel, sweet maltose and tropical fruits as its profile," explained Kavalan CEO Mr YT Lee.
It's not just the combined whiskies which are new as the packaging design also breaks tradition visually connecting the taste and aroma of the liquid for the first time.
The new 700ml, 40% ABV Kavalan will appear first on shelves in France, Canada, Japan, Singapore, China, Australia, New Zealand and Guam.
