Whisky reviews for Imperial 1997 GM

6 users have left 6 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 85.00 points.

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Without water, it's a rather closed whisky, not reaching 80 points in my book. With water, it's decent enough. 
    • Nose
      Without water, the nose is rather harsh and alcoholic. Pine forest floor (needless and moss) , orange juice, leather and nutmeg. 
    • Taste
      Moderately sweet, moderately sour. Leather, plenty of orange juice, plum, raisin, cinnamon and pepper. 
    • Finish
      Medium, with tutti frutti, a bit of leather, moist wood and allspice.

  5. VWWW scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Paid less than €50,- for a whisky that is worth twice in my opinion, there is so much going on here, fruityness, spiceness, etc. So sorry i didn't buy more than one bottle!

  6. MaltMartin scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A nice fruity Imperial. Sadly now a demolished distillery.
    • Nose
      A little spirity at first. Fragrant. Later on more nutty and a little sulphur as well. Some nutmeg.
    • Taste
      Round and sweet. Mix of tropical and citrus fruit (ananas, apricots and lemon). Pepper and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Long, bitter-sweetness. Paprika.
