Kavalan Shines at International Wine and Spirits Competition

Kavalan Shines at International Wine and Spirits CompetitionKavalan, Taiwan’s premier whiskymaker, last night took out an Outstanding Gold award and 4 Golds at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC), meaning its whiskies “set the standard” and are of the “highest quality” in the world.

At the 9th annual IWSC’s “Spirits Tasting” event on July 27th in London, Kavalan was awarded as follows in its Worldwide Whisky Single Malt category:

  •     Solist Port Single Cask Strength  – Gold Outstanding
  •     Solist Vinho Barrique Single Cask Strength – Gold
  •     Solist Fino Sherry Single Cask Strength – Gold
  •     Concertmaster – Gold
  •     ex-Bourbon Single Cask Strength – Gold

Kavalan owner Mr YT Lee said: “Kavalan Solist Port’s Gold Outstanding represents ‘quality of the highest order.’ It now qualifies for entry into the IWSC’s prestigious November 16 Annual Awards Banquet for the top honour of a Trophy.”

The judges said of the Solist Port:

“Nose booms out rich malt with porty notes and loads of floral characters. Fruit cake, tobacco and rich malt make for great complexity. Slips easily into the mouth and across the palate. Some fine mature notes lead into long, complex finish.”

This year, Kavalan’s Solist Amontillado Sherry Single Cask Strength was named the “World’s Best Single Cask Single Malt Whisky” by the prestigious World Whiskies Awards (WWA) while Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique collected the 2015 “World’s Best Single Malt Whisky.”
