Kavalan Launches 'Triple Sherry Cask'
TAIPEI, Nov. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Rare combination of 3 exquisite sherry oak casks 


Kavalan has launched its Triple Sherry Cask, a rare combination of Oloroso, 
Pedro Ximenez (PX) and Moscatel-aged casks with Kavalan's velvety texture and 
signature sweetness. 

Pedro Ximenez is known as the king of sweet sherry and Moscatel is the queen of 
sweet sherry. 

"This is the first time we've combined our whisky in three different sherry 
casks. It's all about multiplying and enriching the sherry flavours to make a 
distinct whisky that has dried fruits, rich caramel, sweet maltose and tropical 
fruits as its profile," said CEO Mr YT Lee.

After fully maturing in three sherry casks, Triple Sherry Cask showcases a 
three-stage balancing craft in the marrying vats. The process allows the three 
whiskies, each fully matured in the three different sherry casks to rest and 
meld together in perfect fusion, locking in optimal smoothness. 

"During this process, the flavours collide through a myriad combination of the 
three sherry cask whiskies, creating up to 9 distinct sherry dimensions. With 
its main character the dried fruits of the Oloroso cask, Triple Sherry is 
embellished with the sweetness of PX and Moscatel casks," said Senior Blender 
Zerose Yang.

Like a smooth flamenco dance, its notes of cinnamon, candied smoked plum, and 
citrus, layered with berry, tropical fruit, and longan aromas, with a dash of 
honey, chocolate, and toffee playfully tease the taste buds. 

The packaging design breaks with the past, visually connecting the taste and 
aroma of the liquid for the first time. The fluid painting intertwined with 
white, gold, and red colours, which symbolises the multilayered and smooth 
taste of triple sherry cask whisky. Also it presents the combination of the 
colour of new make, whisky and sherry wine. Underscored on the tin capsule is a 
double silver line, symbolising the Central Mountain and Snow Mountain ranges 
surrounding Kavalan Distillery.

The new 700ml, 40% ABV Kavalan will appear first on shelves in France, Canada, 
Japan, Singapore, China, Australia, New Zealand and Guam at a RRP of NT$2,300.
