Best whiskies in the world.

 

Kavalan

Kavalan 4 Years Old, Solist Vinho 2008
Single Malt - Taiwan - 59.20%
7 That whisky definitely needs water to cut the edges but it brings out bitterness. The balance is missing.

Kavalan 5 Years Old, Solist Fino
Single Malt - Taiwan - 58.30%
7 Bitter all the way. No balance. One dimensional. To try only if you are a ‘woodfreak'. Surprisingly, water tones the bitterness down.

Realising the dream
Spreading far beyond Asia, Kavalan has dared to think big and is now reaping the awards.
