    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.
