Whisky Reviews for Imperial 30-year-old ElD

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.08 points

  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very good Imperial. I don't know the distillery very well (yet), and I would have bet on a blind Clynelish.
    In any case, it is very balanced, complex, and austere.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Relatively waxed nose. (and I taste this Imperial after two very waxy Clynelish 82!)
      Lemon zest, citrus. A little heady white flower.
      Apple granny smith.
      Light crumb of warm bread, flour.
      A mineral side, on chalk dust.
    • Taste

      In the mouth, we continue on the waxy side.
      The citrus fruits are more expressive, and the balance is very successful.
      Lemon zest, lime, yuzu, bergamot. They are all there.
      Always a big dose of chalk.
      We also have a few roses, which adds a little floral touch that might disturb some.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long finish on lemon, chalk, smoke, damp green tea leaves.
