  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    vanilla, floral, fruit brandy, on fresh juicy apple, sweet lollipop.
    a little caramelized, malty, a little dry wood
    mouth:
    sweet spices, almonds with bitterness, this basket side of flowers and stems with exploding sap, on hemlock, anise; fruity sweetness, apple again, return of leaves, chlorophyll, mint.
    final:
    quite long on the same scents, with vanilla, malt, dry oak, apples and almonds.

    Info from the website of The Whisky Exchange, bottler of this Imperial whisky.

    This 21 Year Old single malt from Imperial has been matured in a single bourbon barrel for over two decades, creating a sweet, floral character.

    TASTING NOTES from Billy Abbott at The Whisky Exchange:
    NOSE
    Grassy meadows, sultanas and crisp apples. Candy bracelets develop, along with barley sugar, orchard fruits and sugared almonds. There's a background of lemon zest with a pinch of orange for good measure.
    PALATE
    Sweet at first, with the grassy notes from the nose balanced by creamy touches, sweet apples and a little bit of syrup. Mint fondant hints pair with almonds, gentle oak and freshly snapped Garibaldi biscuits.
    FINISH
    The meadows are back, fading to leave sweet baking spices.
    COMMENT
    An old-fashioned style of whisky, sweet and spring-meadow-tinged, with notes of almond and apple, and a hint of mint.
