Kavalan Distillery Select 700ml
NZD $110.00 inc. GST
A brand-new release from award-winning Taiwanese distillery Kavalan, celebrating the craftsmanship of Master Blender Ian Chang. Aged in refill casks, Distillery Select captures the fruity, tropical character that Kavalan has become known for, whilst also displaying a refined balance from its maturation in the tropical temperatures of Taiwan. The palate is full of notes of tropical fruits and chocolate that mingle with toffee apples, salted-caramel and vanilla. The finish is smooth and fruity, full of pineapple and mango notes, and sweet, tropical spices.
After mellowing in a refill cask to develop the soft distillery character for a decade, a secondary maturation in a specifically chosen Amontillado cask wood ensures that all the good work continues.

This pairs wonderfully with the coastal wafts and peat smoke which people love Bowmore whisky for.

A young, rather gentle Bowmore. Whilst not massively complex or full-bodied, Legend is still a great value for money malt.

Winnner of Single Malt of the Year (multiple casks) for 2016 by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, Glen Grant 10 Year Old is an exemplary Scotch whisky.

A sherried 12 year old single malt from Diageo’s Classic Malts range, this bottling from the Cragganmore distillery represents Speyside and proffers a rich, slightly floral whisky with barley notes
This is one of the legendary Islay malts. We loved the Committee release and we weren’t disappointed with this incredible dram. This was released to replace Airigh Nam Beist, choosing a more medicinal style over the creamier style of the beastie.
