Taiwanese whisky has been a 'thing' for a while now, since 2008 in fact, but the highly-regarded Kavalan whiskies are now finally available in Europe! This single malt whisky utilises Ruby Port, Tawny Port and Vintage Port casks from Portugal to finish whiskies that were initially matured in American oak. Kavalan Concertmaster was named Best in Class at the 2011 International Wine & Spirit Competition.
In stock, worldwide delivery available.

Far from bland Mr all hype! For me another stunning Kavalan offering
Well... Open you mind Dude!!!
How this can remind anyone of blended scotch is beyond me? My 5th Kavalan tried and all have been 8-9 out of 10 and the fino solist one the best so called new world Whiskies I have tried out of over 1400 odd in my life. Dark charred tropical fruit, hot chocolate, malty caramel,anise, sweet oaky red berries, kirsch & Black Forest gateaux on the nose.Plenty to chew on here with stewed red fruit, spicy plum, aromatic oak, red wine tannins, anise and more choco/black cherry. Only critical note would be the short finish but this with a bit more age would be a world beating port cask offering. The Whisky Flaneur

If you like The Macallan Fine Oak 10 or 12 yr, you will like this one. but It's not for the peat fan.

Sorry but this hype over Asian whisky is getting old. Not a great product, taste is very bland and reminded me of blended scotch. Not even any unique qualities, very disappointing product especially considering the price. I have a very open mind when it comes to the world of whisky but my money will be spent on real scotch whisky, not poorly crafted impostors.

Nose: a lot of different aromas coming through. The initial sniff had fruitiness and a sweetness to it. As it had time to breath, a hint of coconut began to reveal itself, a scent of dry coconut.
Palate: rich taste but hard to say what exactly it is. A hint of wine or port coming through.
Finish: once you swallow it's as if the whisky evaporated. A dry finish which leaves your mouth wanting more.
Overall: it's a unique taste and quite a good dram. However, it's overpriced and not the easiest to get a hold of.

Not a strong or smokey whiskey, more dry and fruity. Was skeptical before trying but was pleasantly surprised. Too bad it's hard to find outside Taiwan.
