In Yilan of Taiwan is the home of the King Car distillery. The Kavalan single Malt takes it's name from the indigenous people of this part of Taiwan. Flavours of the tropics dominate this malt alongside soft but spicy oak.
The culmination of nine years research and development, Starward is a rich amber colour with aromas of ripe orchard fruits: pears, bananas and apples with vinous raisins and dried figs. Caramel, vanilla and marzipan balance the fruit. The palate is filled with rich, toasty caramel, creme brulee, more fruit, pepper, sandalwood, nutmeg and marzipan. A full, sweet, juicy mouth feel, with a youthful, spicy, dry finish.
