What began as Kavalan's biggest challenge has become its secret ingredient—Taiwan's subtropical heat. It's the reason that Lee was told it couldn't be done, and now it's the reason Kavalan is able to supercharge the whisky maturation process, accomplishing in four or six years what might take a Scottish producer 15 or 25 years. The very simple explanation is that heat increases the interaction of the spirit with the wood, leading to more rapid and intense extraction of desired flavor compounds.

Nose: Spicy flavours nicely mixed with fruit and wood. A light vanilla cream and banana.

Palate: A snappy ginger and pepper spiciness followed by the sweet vanilla and honey. A little later the more woody tones take over to dry out everything.

Finish: A good finish with the oak in the lead.
