Matured in American oak barrels and then finished in ruby, tawny and vintage Port wine casks, this single malt Taiwanese whisky is smooth with creamy richness. Its flavors of tropical fruit, dark berries, vanilla and sweet tobacco earned it a Double Gold medal at the 2014 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

"The finish keeps it going for the long haul — lasting with ample spice notes."

Product Details

This Taiwanese single malt whisky has a striking amber hue in the glass, and a clean, elegant and floral nose that has hints of orchid, honey, mango, pear, vanilla, coconut and chocolate. The palate displays a hint of mango juice, with a spicy complexity and gentle warmth, while the pleasant finish has citrus overtones. Matured in American oak barrels and then finished in ruby, tawny and vintage Port wine casks which offer a “harmonious symphony,” this whisky is smooth with creamy richness. It won a Gold medal at the 2011 International Wine and Spirit Competition.
