From King Car Distillery, Taiwan – 46%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Medium amber
Nose: Caramel, polished wood, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper.
Palate: Raisins, grapes, butterscotch, orange zest, cinnamon, hints of pepper and dried herbs.
Finish: Long fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: This malt from Taiwan is on eye level with a decent Scotch. The short maturation in hot climate has created a very nice dram, rich in flavour and with a creamy mouthfeel.
Rating: 84/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
