Our latest shift meeting at @lizardvillebeerstore @kavalanwhisky Classic Malt.
---------
This is the flagship whisky of Taiwan's first distillery. While this is a NAS whisky, Kavalan has stated they age their whisky a minimum of three years, and no more than six. Due to the humid, tropical climate of Taiwan, maturation happens at an accelerated pace, roughly three-to-four times more quickly than in Scotland. Kavalan uses roughly 99.9% American Oak for maturation, as they have found French Oak to impart "bitter and astringent" flavors in their environment.
---------
Kavalan is owned by King Car Group, a company which was founded as a manufacturer of pesticides. Going from pesticide production, to beverage manufacturing is quite the journey!
---------
Kavalan released their first whisky in December of 2008. Quickly gaining acclaim, Kavalan now produces over 9 million liters of whisky a year, making them one of the largest producers in single malt whisky, after only ten years.
---------
Aroma: Sweet honey, mango, vanilla, and a touch of coconut oil.
.
Taste: Mango, mango, mango. Holy cow is this a unique single malt! I'm not sure I've ever tasted more mango in a whisky. Sweet without being syrupy, a nice hint of cinnamon, and a touch of oak.
.
Overall: Uniquely Taiwan. This whisky was very reminiscent of @compassboxwhiskyco Spice Tree Extravaganza to me, due to its tropical nature. Mango for days! My only complaint is that I wish it had a touch more oak.

A true throwback Thursday today: bringin it way back to the first post! Original caption below. A few of you may have missed this one since I have exactly zero followers at the time 😂. Thanks to every one of you awesome people for the growth since!
🥃
Happy #whiskywednesday! The #glenfarclas 17! A truly exquisite #dram of #scotch that's somewhat difficult to find but well worth the money. Known for being a #sherrybomb, this one does not disappoint.Plenty of #sherry and #cinnamon. There's a unique black #cherry note, as well. I don't pick up the #smoke that some get, but I do get some #darkchocolate and #leather on the finish. Still on the hunt for the 15 year. What're you drinking today?
🥃
