Kavalan launches rare Triple Sherry Cask

By Wendy Morley

Kavalan Triple Sherry Cask fully matured in Oloroso, Pedro Ximénez and Moscatel sherry-aged casks

Kavalan has launched its Triple Sherry Cask, a rare combination of Oloroso, Pedro Ximénez (PX) and Moscatel-aged casks with the Taiwanese single malt whisky distiller’s velvety texture and signature sweetness.

Pedro Ximénez is known as the king of sweet sherry and Moscatel is the queen of sweet sherry.

Commenting on the launch, Kavalan CEO Mr YT Lee said: “This is the first time we’ve combined our whisky in three different sherry casks. It’s all about multiplying and enriching the sherry flavors to make a distinct whisky that has dried fruits, rich caramel, sweet maltose and tropical fruits as its profile.”

After fully maturing in three sherry casks, Triple Sherry Cask showcases a three-stage balancing craft in the marrying vats. The process allows the three whiskies, each fully matured in the three different sherry casks, to rest and meld together, locking in optimal smoothness.

Deep scarlet in color, the whisky has notes of cinnamon, candied smoked plum and citrus, layered with berry, tropical fruit and longan aromas, with a dash of honey, chocolate and toffee.

The packaging design breaks with the past, visually connecting the taste and aroma of the liquid for the first time. The fluid painting is intertwined with white, gold and red colors, which symbolize the multilayered and smooth taste of triple sherry cask whisky. It also presents the color combination of the whisky and sherry wine.

Underscored on the tin capsule is a double silver line, symbolizing the Central Mountain and Snow Mountain ranges surrounding Kavalan Distillery.

The 700ml, 40%abv Kavalan will appear first on shelves in France, Canada, Japan, Singapore, China, Australia, New Zealand and Guam, retailing at NT$2,300 ($83).
