  1. Astrid scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Smells good, but afterwards you get the impression that it has probably been in a less than perfect cask for too long. More fruit would have been desirable, and the bourbon leftovers don't seem very willing to integrate either. For the full review, go here: https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2022/09/12/90er-speyside/

    In comparison https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/66592/imperial-1995-vw: similar nose, apricot, bitter almond, soot; everything a bit more subtle. With water: younger at first, star fruit, cool, malt. Does not build up to the same strength as the vW, the individual notes are more difficult to separate, which makes it appear more exotic and mature. In the mouth, with plenty of water, thick, oily, interwoven, old degraded smoke with a lot of propolis, more candle soot, more dry than fresh apricot, a lot of star fruit, fir resin and wet earth, damp undergrowth. Long, sooty finish with polished wood, lots of beeswax, slightly bitter in comparison.

    vW: More punch, more fruit, a lot of wood - this one looks older, more soot, is even more reminiscent of much older Speysider. Nose only with the same deep in the glass - rating is also personal preference, both excellent bottlings of their "cohort"

    88/89.
    • Nose
      Honey, apple, vanilla pudding and a little white bread.
    • Taste
      Honey and pepper. Vanilla. It takes a while for the typical Imperial waxiness breaks through. Water makes it juicier and also releases a nuttiness. 
    • Finish
      Honey, orange, pastry and wax.
