Kavalan Solist Fino Sherry Oak Single Malt Whisky in Tube 50ml


Kavalan Solist Fino Sherry Oak Single Malt Whisky in Tube 50ml

In ancient times, the land around I-Lan in Taiwan was called Kavalan, a mysterious land that was solely inhabited by the indigenous people of the Kavalan clan. The name was officially recognized by the Emperor of the Chin dynasty in the year 1809 when the original city was also built under the same name.

Kavalan had always been kept primitive and protected from the outside world by the Syue-shan mountain range which is abundant in high-quality natural water that comes from deep within the mountain range. The mists of Kavalan and the spirits of the past have been created for you in this exquisite whisky.

Fino, Spanish for ‘Fine’, is the driest and most pale of all varieties of traditional sherry wine. It is best drunk comparatively young. Traditional Fino wine is usually non-sweet and is best consumed shortly after the bottle is opened in order to avoid losing its flavour. Kavalan’s Fino, however, provides a mild sweetness that excites the palate. Solist Fino was matured in top Fino Sherry butts that were used for winemaking.
