Kavalan’s master distiller Ian Chang says, â€œWith Kavalan Distillery Select, what we try to showcase is the most fundamental qualities of Kavalan – the fruitiness, a bit floral, with this very nice honey type of character – without too much influence from the previous fill and without too much influence from the cask itself.â€
Honey-covered apples kick off the nose, with dried apricots and a range of tropical fruits including papaya and mango, all backed up by butterscotch. Dried fruits and walnuts show on the palate, with clover honey, bitter Baker’s chocolate, and creamy toffee.
