  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    I love the Imperials from 1995 and before for their thick, waxy profile. This is definitely a nice whisky, but it doesn't have what makes a 'real' Imperial for me.

    • Taste

      Good dose of varnish, some vanilla, light honey, marzipan, ripe banana, light honeysuckle, but of lemon zest, little bit of hay, yellow flowers. Nice, but a bit heavy on the varnish.
    • Taste

      Alcohol level is just right, very nice. Light warmth and very full, kind of oily, starts off with a good amount of hay, freshly cut grass, oak, barley sugar, some very light smoke in the back, some cane sugar sweetness. A bit heavy on the bitter notes. Second chew is better, some spearmint joins in with light ginger, toffee, and light banana skin bitterness. Notes of oat meal cookies. Getting very tasty. Third chew is drier around the gums, more toffee, smoke and ginger, and that's about it. Was probably best on the second chew.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Light smoke, light chili pepper, banana skins, toffee, oak, very light notes of dark chocolate and espresso.
