Kavalan King Car 40 th Anniversary Single Malt, 56.3%

Price: $521 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

This stirred a primeval urge in me for a good steak: bramble, blueberry, ripe Victoria
plum, Morello cherry, exotic spices, and a hot and heavy perfumed scent from the
select wine cask maturation. Sweet berry fruit—though mouth drawing—and a
delicious chocolate note, then it lashes the tongue with an intense peppery spice that
made me double-check the ABV, so dilute liberally. Savory finish with charred
oak. NTD15,000
