Notify me when 5 YO Chinese Single Malt Whisky product becomes available!
The first Chinese single malt produced in China and exported to the U.S.
The Goalong Distillery, located in Changsha, China, has been churning out drams that feature a unique flavor profile rarely known by the American public. Chinese single malts have officially earned a seat at the table, and are on the verge of an explosion in the demand among the marketplace.
With a flavor profile unique to the region, and a Mash Bill comprised of 100% Australian malted barley, the finished product is truly one of a kind and will claim it's stake as a high caliber single malt whisky able to compete with the best whiskies from around the world.
This release from Goalong comes in the form of a young whisky, aged for 5 years in ex-bourbon casks, but the flavor profile is anything but young because of the fluctuating climate in the south-central region of China where each barrel was aged. Chinese single malts are on the verge of a demand spike, the secret is out, here's your chance to taste history in the making.
Whisky Profile: Toffee apples, butterscotch haystacks, peonies, and orange wedges on the light and sweet nose. More sweetness on the palate, flowers and fruit undergirded by grain: candied rose petals, citrus peel, vanilla Pudding Pop, green banana, and pencil shavings. The texture is velvety but the flavors don't leave much of an impression, with a finish of vanilla and sweet oak that's barely there.
