To celebrate its 40th anniversary, the owner of Taiwanese whisky distillery Kavalan, King Car Group, has released a limited edition single cask bottling.

Aged in a "highly exclusive" red wine cask, the limited edition bottling is said to be “fittingly multi-dimensional, complex and full of depth.” The single malt whisky is described as having “powerful” aromas of Cabernet Sauvignon, strawberry, bilberry, spice and fresh charred oak. On the palate, it is said to have notes of toffee, berry fruits and spice. Master blender Ian Chang said: “It’s been aged in a very rare red wine cask whose majesty transfers to a richly intense whisky, delivering very distinct berry flavours and luxuriant toffee.” Already available to purchase in Taiwan, Kavalan’s latest special edition whisky will be available in select countries globally in 2020. King Car Group CEO YT Lee said: “I am honoured to be part of the journey first begun by my father four decades ago. King Car has always strived hard to deliver the finest quality – a pursuit that defines our character – and this insistence on excellence will continue into the future.”
