Tasting Notes

The Nantou Distillery was founded in 1978 but only began distilling whisky in 2008. Armed with German mash tuns and washbacks and two sets of custom copper pot stills from the legendary Forsyths firm of Rothes, Scotland, Nantou is producing classicly styled single malts that are incredibly well made with precise flavors of granola, orange blossom honey, lemon bar, yellow plums, white tea, vanilla, coconut frosting, passion fruit, ginger and green peppercorn. The texture is round and elegant with a tongue tingling liveliness that will leave your mouth watering. Very well done.

Staff Pick Notes

I'm impressed by this super elegant and rich on the palate Single Malt. There are subtle aromas at first of vanilla, cream, caramel and hints of flowers. However when this liquid hits your palate it explodes with full, rich malted flavors and spicy. Really, what a turnaround from the nose. It's also a little less expensive than the Kavalan but I actually do like the Omar a touch better.
