Kavalan Distillery Select No. 2

6th May 2020
Taiwanese distillery, Kavalan, launch second release in their entry level Distillery Series.

Kavalan Distillery Select Series No.1 & No.2

Kavalan distillery has announced the launch of Kavalan Select No.2, the new Taiwanese single malt whisky joins the Kavalan Select No.1 which was launched back in 2018 to form the Kavalan Select Series.

The Taiwanese Kavalan distillery describe the Select Series as an entry-level whisky range series that will run alongside their existing more premium Kavalan series like Solist and Rare Sherries.

CEO Mr. YT Lee said: "the Distillery Select Series had been designed to satisfy both whisky beginners and connoisseurs.

"In this range, drinkers will get all the benefit of our team's fine craftsmanship at a surprising price point. We are doing things a little differently. We're pursuing the flavour profile first, rather than a particular cask."

"For our first whisky, we emphasize tropical fruits and for the second whisky, floral and herbal notes. Each whisky in this range showcases different facets of Kavalan's distinct character. Every expression delivers high quality at a friendly price."

Aged in quality refill casks to showcase Taiwan's subtropical climate, the range takes its name from the previously launched inaugural whisky, now known as Distillery Select No. 1.

No.1 has been repackaged and serialized with a new sticker on the front of the bottle. The recipe of the original whisky has not been altered.

Bottled at 40% ABV the new Kavalan Select No.2 is presented in a bottle shape inspired by Taiwan's architectural pride, Taipei 101 and one of the world's tallest skyscrapers.

Kavalan Distillery Select No. 2 was officially released in Taiwan on April 29, it will be priced around 45 here in the UK inline with the No.1 pricing, it is described as deeply aromatic with an irresistible floral and herbal complexity, blending woody and spicy notes in rich layers. No. 2 will soon be rolled out  globally and will be available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt

Producer's Tasting Notes:

Colour: Midnight amber

Nose: Delicate and silky. Full with the scent of ripened tropical fruits, fragrant floral notes and warm vanilla.

Palate: Elegant, perfectly balanced, and easy to drink. Rich and complex layers of butterscotch, creamy toffee, and vanilla create a soft and thick multi-layered taste that is lingeringly long in the finish.
