    Kavalan Distillery Select No.2 Single Malt Taiwanese Whisky (700ml)

    TAIWAN
    $99. 99 Bottle
    $1199.88 Dozen
    ABV: 40%
    The entry level 'Distillery Select' Series sits beneath Kavalan's existing 'Solist' and 'Rare Sherry' whiskies and comes presented in a bottle shape inspired by Taiwan’s architectural pride, Taipei 101 - one of the world’s tallest skyscrapers. Each whisky in the range is created to showcase a different facet of Kavalan’s character. For this second expression, the Master Distiller emphasises floral and herbal notes.

    Other reviews... Unusually for Kavalan, they have here made the rare error of selecting casks which tend to cancel each other out rather than ensuring complexity.

    ...an unassuming nose leads to a complex and balanced palate with a sophisticated finish that lasts and lasts.
