Kavalan, Taiwan's premier whisky, continued its winning streak at the 2017 International Spirits Challenge, bringing home four Gold medals including one for its new 10th anniversary Kavalan Distillery Reserve Single Malt Whisky Rum Cask.
Kavalan Distillery CEO Mr YT Lee said the limited edition Rum Cask-aged whisky had been inspired by "Caribbean soul and Taiwanese spirit."
"We launched this inaugural rum-aged whisky to mark our first decade and welcome the next 10 years. So it's pleasing that Rum Reserve has now won its first award from one of the most authoritative and influential spirits competition in the world," Mr Lee said.
The three other golds were awarded to Kavalan's Solist ex-Bourbon Single Cask Strength, Podium, and ex-Bourbon Oak.
Kavalan's world-class whisky made in subtropical Taiwan has successively won the industry's highest awards. Its Solist Amontillado Sherry Single Cask Strength was named the World's Best Single Cask Single Malt Whisky in 2016 by the prestigious World Whiskies Awards and its Solist Vinho Barrique won the 2015 World's Best Single Malt Whisky.
