The young distillery, Kavalan, released their first bottling in December 2008, but they have already made quite an impression winning awards and accolades. Distilled at the King Car Distillery in Taiwan, Kavalan is the name of the earliest tribe that inhabited Yilan, where King Car resides. The nose is clean, elegant, floral, fruity, and seductive with hints of honey, tropical fruits, vanilla, coconut, and subtle notes of chocolate. The palate has a hint of sweet mango juice with that spicy complexity and gentle warmth on a medium, oily and citrus finish.
