Since 2012, the Nantou Distillery has been managed by Mr. Pan, he combined traditional skills with a touch of modernity bringing a fresh new perspective.
Yushan Signature Sherry Cask
A whisky with character showcasing the expertise of the Nantou distillery in Taiwan. The sherry version, more fruity than its bourbon counterpart, will please whisky fans. Distilled in Scottish and Belgian copper pot stills, aged in sherry casks and neither chill filtered nor coloured. The nose is clean and complex – stewed fruit, dried fruit, dark chocolate. Goes perfectly with honey spiced pork ribs.
Yushan Signature Bourbon Cask
A great classic revisited with style, finesse and a hint of exotic. A very consensual bourbon version with vanilla flavours. It is distilled in Scottish and Belgian copper pot stills, aged in bourbon casks and neither chill filtered nor coloured. Its nose is fresh and well-balanced – vanilla, cream, honey, flowers. Goes perfectly with salmon grilled with red peppercorns.
Yushan Blended Malt Whisky
This whisky is an official whisky from the Nantou distillery. “Yushan” is a reference to the highest mountain in Taiwan. The nose of Yushan Blended Malt Whisky is light – cereals, dried fruit. Drink it neat or with a dash of water.
