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:
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.
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.
The meadows are back, fading to leave sweet baking spices.
An old-fashioned style of whisky, sweet and spring-meadow-tinged, with notes of almond and apple, and a hint of mint.
