The Best Whiskies in the World, Awards Special
Amrut Two Continents Second Edition
Single Malt - India - 50.00% 8 Amrut are doing some really interesting work right now.
Belgian Single Malt
Single Malt - Belgium - 46.00% 6 A little lost child in the rain.
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.
King Kar Conductor
Single Malt - Taiwan - 46.00% 7 A pleasant dram in spite of a weak development at mid palate.
Kornog Sant Ivy 2011
Single Malt - France - 57.80% 7 A thirst quenching dram. Too harsh neat. A good dash of water tames it. Obviously young. But structured.
