Episode 310: April 3, 2011

This week’s episode features one of the most mysterious single malt whiskies in the world. Taiwan’s Kavalan whisky has received awards in worldwide competitions, even though the King Car Distillery has only been distilling whisky for six years and Kavalan is sold in only four Asian countries. We’ll travel to Taiwan for an in-depth look at what makes this whisky unique. In the news, Decanter #1 of the Glenlivet 70 raises $24,000 for Japanese earthquake relief, new bourbons, and a record for Scotch whisky exports.
