Formosa 12 year old Pure Malt, 40%

Price: $130 Issue: Fall 2021 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Wood spices, vanilla, tangerine peel, and hints of stewed cooking apples reach the nose. A light and honeyed palate offers warm orange, tangy peels, and marmalade on buttered toast, with quite a creamy mouthfeel, a slow buildup of accompanying spices, and a touch of bitter lemon and grapefruit. A finish of orange peel, crystallized pineapple, and bitter lemon. (3,000 bottles for the U.S.)
