Kavalan is whisky from the Taiwanese King Car Group. located at the cross boundary of Yi-Lan Mountain and the sea. When the Pacific Ocean mist and the Snowy Mountain wind interact, the air circulating outside around of the casks will allow even better effects of “wood breathing” function. The “deeply asleep” whisky inside the casks will absorb the natural scents from the interactions of mountain and water, therefore breeding the rich and charming tastes of King Car whiskies. King Car produces the finest quality spirit from the unique water source which Yi-Lan possesses. It is calling out to the world with its world class quality and its unique Taiwanese style. With high temperatures and high humidity, they are dealing with a fast forward maturation.
