The range that first opened the world's eyes to Kavalan Taiwanese Single Malt was the Solist releases, first introduced in 2009. Matured in different types of casks, these whiskies are all bottled at cask strength and released in small batches. Here at WhiskyBrother we were fans from the very beginning and loved having the Kavalan Solist range on our shelves, as did our customers, which is why in 2019 we released an exclusive Rum Cask Solist, which by all accounts was very well received.
Sadly, the Solist range has dried up from South African shelves due to the American market now allowing 700ml bottles. So, in order to get any more Kavalan Solists back to SA we needed to do another exclusive. (Fine by us!) When it came time to selecting a cask from the samples we received, however, we were so blown away by more than just one cask and reminded just how brilliant the Solists releases are. So, in typical WB fashion, we decided to do three casks at the same time, in order to ensure a range of Solists are once again available in SA and offering local whisky fans greater choice!
