Whisky Reviews for Imperial 1990 McC

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.50 points

  1. Waykid scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    I would say this has been diluted to a too low strength. Nothing disturbing or off-putting despite the initial acidity and crispiness, actually the nose is really nice, the palate is just too small and watery. A shame.
    • Nose
      Gooseberries with the acidity, fruity and full white wine, banana, some tobacco-pipe and fresh delicate tobacco. Vanilla, peaches, apricots and some roasted apple pie. A strong sweetness of banana, tinned peach, flower meadows and dried hay.
    • Taste
      Rather crisp initially. Opens up to the sweet notes of banana, apricots and peaches. Very light, even quite thin.
    • Finish
      Very mild, fruity.

  2. Gronqvist scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fresh and sweet with citrus, wild flowers, light honey, grass, nuts, oak and mineral notes.
    • Taste
      Sweet and rich with floral notes, gingerbread, grass, straw, orange and oak.
    • Finish
      Dry with candied citrus pepper and oak.

  3. Ikkakumon scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Good but not transcendent.
    • Nose
      Fresh citrus, wildflowers, hints of honey, sweet spices.
    • Taste
      Sweet (too much?), Floral notes, gingerbread.
    • Finish
      Medium, drier on pepper and oak.
