Whisky Reviews for Imperial 1995 ElD
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.54 points
- Doughy and sweet with a nice spicy note on the finish. I like it, although it doesn't really match my prey scheme.
However, I would not buy an entire bottle for the issue price.
Sadly demolished in 2013 to make way for the Dalmunach distillery, Imperial didn’t actually make any whisky after 1998. However, there are still some cracking Imperial vintages from the early-mid 1990’s coming from the independents.
N: Lighter [7% abv lower] than the 21yo, though similar in profile.
T: Similar again to the 21yo, yet more tincture-y/concentrated. A moorish heart reveals a gooey muffin & a donut-y doughy sweetness.
F: It’s more oaky than the 21yo on the turn, though still simularily sweet-ish.
C: Subjectively I prefer this simply because of its moorish centre, though objectively the 21yo maybe a whisker more balanced. I’d need more time with both to be certain. Also, that extra abv helps the 21yo, but both are equally excellent expressions.
