At a whiskey tasting test, which recently took place, a Taiwanese Whiskey brewery scored an ostentatious 27.5 out of 40 and got the top notch Scottish brands suffer a convincing licking. The Taiwanese present at the connoisseurs’ ‘Blind Taste Test’, held at Scotland, must have relished the fame and basked in the glory.
This Taiwanese whiskey, named Kavalan, is the first of its kind in the quiet land of Taiwan and is produced by the King Car Whiskey Distillery. Earlier, as the number of whiskey lovers in Taiwan was less, whiskey was then imported from different parts of the world, but now, with the increase in number of the ardent admirers of this beverage, the idea of launching a whiskey brewery was spawned.
It wasn’t a cakewalk for the Kings Car to come up with the distinct blend of whiskey, it had to strive and overcome all the hurdles that came in the way.
Langs, a Scottish brand, scored 22 points and was followed by King Robert.Bruichladdich X4+3, another Scottish brand, held the last position by securing a meager 4.5.
“Asians are not only some of the world’s most sophisticated consumers of Scotch, but have begun distilling malts that compete with the best Scottish distilleries.” As published by The Times.
