Kavalan Solist Pedro Ximénez Sherry Cask / 56,3%The Yuan Shand Distillery, producer of Kavalan single malt, was built in 2005 in Yilan County, Taiwan by King Car Food Industrial Company. The whisky debuted three years later and immediately started winning various whisky competitions. The success of the brand is so great (it scored 180 medals and awards) that in 2015 the owners decided to increase capacity from 1.5 million to 4.5 million liters of spirit per annum. In 2017 another expansion was completed, which increased number of stills to 20 and capacity to 9 million liters. The Solist range containing single cask whiskies aged in various types of wood was launched in the late 2009. Our favorite has been Pedro Ximénez expression, here we have cask no. PX 110321027A, which yielded 546 bottles of cask strength whisky (57.1% abv).
