Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique Single Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky

World Whisky Taste Master 2020

The World Whisky Masters 2020 began with a flight of whiskies from Asia (excluding Japan and India) and, unsurprisingly, Taiwanese producer Kavalan lived up to its reputation for quality liquid.

Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique Single Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky was one of multiple awards given to the distillery in this flight – and it also went on to win the Taste Master trophy. The judges enjoyed flavours of “candied orange peel and rich spiced toffee” when sampling the entry.

“It had this almost savoury, aromatic note that reminded me of clove‐studded oranges,” said Billy Abbott, ambassador at The Whisky Exchange and World Whisky Masters 2020 judge. “It had a slightly musky note and was doing something very different, but then leading into a toffee‐style palate.”
