The Kavalan distillery is named after an ancient tribe that used to the live in the region, in the north-west part of the island of Taiwan. Founded by the King Car Group, Kavalan did not hesitate to call on the services of the best experts in the industry, declaring their intention from the outset to make a whisky of exceptional quality. It was thus with the help of Jim Swann that the distillery produced the first drops of its new-make on 11 March 2006 and brought its first whisky to the market in December 2008. By selecting the best barrels, Kavalan managed to produce a range of single casks (sherry, bourbon and port) in 2009, only three years after it began production, and has already won numerous medals at a variety of international competitions.

This LMDW exclusive is a expression matured in a cask that previously contained single malt from the Isle of Islay.
Preferring concision to exuberance, both on the aromatic and gustatory level, this straight-to-the-point dram consistently places peat at the heart of the tasting.
Complex smoke flavours dance over layers medicinal, ashy, mineral, dry and even root tones, making this an absolute must try.
