Whisky and Whiskies of the World
We have expanded our range of Whiskies.
Now we can show this amazing spirit that is made from Australia to Taiwan in a huge range of styles and flavours.
To start with our New Favourite:
Starward from new World Whisky Distillery in Melbourne Australia. Started in 2007 to showcase the region nature of the area famous for it’s varying seasons and famous wine regions.
Using local Barley and local wine barrels drawing on the vibrancy of big bold reds like Shiraz and Cabernet, as well as delicate notes in Pinot. The spirit is matured in these barrels with now charring which means the whisky is deeply flavoured by the barrels contents.
Two Fold is the latest addition to our shelves. Made with a mixture of Barley and Wheat and matured in Red Wine barrels. Amazingly complex with vanilla, red apples, tropical fruit notes with cereal and spices
New World Projects is the latest release in a range. 100% Malted Barley and matured for 2.5 years in the red wine barrels. One of the most balanced whiskies I have ever tried. The wine notes work in harmony with undercurrents of soft berry and tannin.
Kavalan from Taiwan:
Established in 2005, Kavalan is Taiwan’s first whisky maker and the nation’s only family-owned whisky distillery. Kavalan takes the old name of Yilan county where the distillery is located in northeastern Taiwan.
The pure water and fresh air make this part of the subtropical island the ideal environment for the production of whisky.
Kavalan Distillery is an entrepreneur’s dream come true. Mr. Tien-Tsai Lee, the founder of King Car conglomerate had long dreamed of producing a
Taiwanese whisky, yet it was not until 2002 when Taiwan joined the WTO that his goal could be achieved.
The distillery brings together a professional whisky R&D team with a world-class master blender, Ian Chang, as well as the expertise of renowned whisky specialist, the late Dr. Jim Swan.
The team implements the highly specialised distilling and blending skills that King Car Group has cultivated for more than 30 years through beverage experience and knowledge.
Scotch Whisky must be matured in oak casks for a minimum of three years.Taiwanese Whisky must be matured in oak casks for a minimum of two years.
Kavalan Distillery Select: Showcasing the classic style with rich butterscotch, vanilla, spices and rich toasted cereal. Amazing as a long drink over ice and diluted with water (1:4) with fish or smoked foods
King Car Conductor: Created to showcase the range that the distillery can produce, this expression has one of the boldest, fullest and most rounded flavours of King Car’s whiskies. Bottled at a strength of 46% abv without chill filtration.The nose has sweet porridge oats and a drizzling of sharp fruits, with a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg spice with oak . The palate is buttery and sweet, with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, oak and spice. The finish is long with apples and honey fading to soft spice.
Other whisky styles to look at
Circumstance Distillery: Bristol’s own with new releases of Barley, Rye and Mixed Grains not old enough to be called whisky yet. Well and truly worth buying and the future looks amazing with casks maturing for the future. They have also released a Rum called Cane which should be on everyone’s Christmas list.
