Kavalan distillery's first global release of 2019 has hit the bars and shelves in Taiwan, with a global roll-out to follow.
The Kavalan Concertmaster Sherry Finish at 40% ABV is the second whisky in the Concertmaster range, double matured in Spain's finest Sherry casks after ageing in the distillery's special reserve of refill casks.
Kavalan CEO Mr Lee described the whisky as highly elegant, rich and silky smooth, with notes of dark dry fruits and savoury nuttiness.
He said the newly opened Kavalan Whisky Bar in Taipei had created a special cocktail for the launch of the Concertmaster Sherry Finish.
"It's based on the iconic Bond Vesper Martini, except that our head bartender Shane Lin has replaced the vodka in the recipe with Concertmaster Sherry Finish. This adds fruitiness and gives it more depth and body," Mr Lee said.
Lin was inspired by the new whisky's clean, pure and well-rounded profile. The cocktail he has created is sharp and refreshing. Its name, "Long Story Short" refers to the cocktail's effectiveness. Just what you'd expect of a 007-influenced drink.
