Formosa 12 year old Single Malt, 40%

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

A gentle beauty, with an excellent balance of fruit and spice on the nose, this has aromas of pear, lemon peel, baked apple, and caramelized brown sugar, with a touch of menthol. Sipping reveals pear, parma violets, and blueberry, threaded with mild spice and a little vanilla fudge, concluding with an active peppercorn finish with a hint of clove. (3,000 bottles for the U.S.)
