An intriguing release from Taiwan's King Car distillery, presented as part of their Kavalan Solist range. 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.
Nose:Fresh peach and guava, toasted almond, a hint of peppery oak.
Palate:Oily barley leading to earthy peat smoke. Some new leather richness, balanced by zesty orchard fruit.
Finish:Quite long, with hot pepper once again developing alongside vanilla and fruit.
