At dekanta we’re always looking to be at the forefront of innovation within the whisky industry. We strive to bring the most exciting, eclectic and intriguing whiskies on the market to our loyal customers (that’s you!) and we’re delighted to be able to do that again by presenting the Kavalan Solist Rum Cask.
A Groundbreaking Single Cask Expression
Introducing an outstanding, groundbreaking new expression that is the first single cask whisky from Taiwan’s popular Kavalan distillery matured in a cask that previously held top quality rum. The distillery’s master-craftsman worked diligently to ensure the whisky spent exactly the right amount of time in the cask, resulting in a truly astounding, mouth-watering array of smells and flavours. There is a whole lot to be explored in this stunning single malt and, if that’s not enough to wet your palate, the bottle comes packaged inside an elegant box that doubles as a display case.
The Limited Edition You Don’t Want To Miss
This is a rare rum-cask-matured release from Kavalan, layering rummy fruit and sweetness on top of the Taiwanese distillery’s famously fruity spirit. The combination of a rum cask with Kavalan’s outstanding liquid yield an expression that is packed full of unique flavors that make this a whisky unlike any other. Rum cask bottlings have not previously been released under the Solist line, making this one of the most rare releases to come from Kavalan to date.
Exclusively at dekantā
Rum Cask releases have traditionally been offered in small bottles, purchasable only at the Kavalan distillery. More often than not, and at this very moment, stock at the distillery is sold out.
We’re pleased to be the first Japanese company to ever release a Rum Cask Solist bottling. In fact, dekantā is the only online retailer to release a Rum Cask Solist bottling in 2019! You don’t want to miss this opportunity to put this fabulous expression on your shelf.
Winning Awards Around The Globe
The Kavalan Solist range is known far and wide, especially since 2015 when a bottle was named the World’s Best Single Malt at the World Whiskies Awards. Celebrated for its unique flavors, the range continues to receive awards at international competitions.
Kavalan Single Malt Whisky
When Kavalan was established in 2005, it was the first distillery on the island of Taiwan. Based in Yilan County, south of the Taiwan capital, Taipei, Kavalan benefits from the pure water, fresh air and subtropical climate of the region, making it an ideal place for whisky production. High humidity and an annual average temperature of a balmy 22º celsius (72º fahrenheit) accelerate the maturation process of Taiwanese whiskies, resulting in a fruity, rich spirit that is old before its time. While still a young distillery, Kavalan has quickly gained international recognition for their drive to create innovative expressions that allow whisky to be experienced in new and unexpected ways.
