Kavalan King Car 40th Anniversary Edition (56.3% abv) 1.5 Litre

$1,299.99

This landmark single cask whisky has been created to celebrate a milestone by the owners of Kavalan Distillery.
Aged in a ‘secret’ red wine cask sourced from a winery of ‘world-class standing’, it signifies 40 years of the King Car Company and comes packaged to show their pride: A super-sized decanter adorned with a crown-inspired cork, studded with world-renowned Swarovski crystals pays homage to the group’s name. The decanter is housed in an impressive leather bound wooden box with a ‘Snow Mountain’ design acknowledging the land that King Car has become a part of. The box also contains a stunning Kavalan branded whisky glass. The sheer scale of the presentation is spectacular.

As to the whisky itself, Master blender Ian Chang comments, “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.” (The cask is believed to have held Cabernet Sauvignon, so one could speculate the provenance might be a First Growth Bordeaux).

Description

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.” The Spirit Business
