A rounder, richer version than the entry-level version, yet not as strong as the various bottlings in the Solist range, Kavalan King Car Conductor is a generous whisky developed to express all the qualities of this still-young single malt that is nevertheless already proving to be a hit among connoisseurs. Bottled at 46% and non-chill filtered, this is a complex and delicate single malt, the standard bearer for the Kavalan distillery and the King Car group.
The Kavalan distillery is named after an ancient tribe that used to the live in the region, in the north-west part of the island of Taiwan. Founded by the King Car Group, Kavalan did not hesitate to call on the services of the best experts in the industry, declaring their intention from the outset to make a whisky of exceptional quality. It was thus with the help of Jim Swann that the distillery produced the first drops of its new-make on 11 March 2006 and brought its first whisky to the market in December 2008. By selecting the best barrels, Kavalan managed to produce a range of single casks (sherry, bourbon and port) in 2009, only three years after it began production, and has already won numerous medals at a variety of international competitions.
