Word reaching us has it that the best booze in the world can be found in Taiwan, this is according to the annual World Whiskies Awards.

For years, Japan and Scotland have held this record but this year, Taiwan's Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique Single Cask Strength whiskey was named the world's best single malt whiskey for 2015.

Kavalan's distillery which is part of the King Car group, is located in northeastern Taiwan and they age their whiskey in American oak barrels that is used to store wine.

Here's why we're particulalry excited about this week, describing the whiskey on the winning entry, the judges said "it's like Bourbon infused milk chocolate" going on to mention "caramel, marzipan, coffee-vanilla, fudge, and rich, creamy, dried black fruits."

We're definitely sold on that, anyone want to head to Taiwan with us for some whiskey tasting?
