  1. tribe scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Finally an impi again. Is my youngest up to now with 15 years, because it is easier to test older impis.

      But it already has good wood, typical impi notes as green apple and vanilla honey and peach from the bourbon barrel. Malt and what herbal or green grass. Very interesting. Some pepper and caramel. Mandarin.

      More to the than expected, has a good wood insert despite the age, since I had much older ones with less wood. But also here peach, manderina, apple, malt and white pepper. Very nice, I love it. Runs down oily.

      It gets a bit peppery but the sweetness stays the same. Interesting interplay with the oak. Medium length

    Taste: heavy fruity, oily, liquorice, pepper, honey

    Finish: sweet, long

  8. I_SPEY scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Colour: pale gold.

    Nose: the smell of very old  brandy and raisins, leather and lumber as well as dried plums.

    Taste: nuts, cherries, dried apricots, figs and cocoa beans.

    Finish: medium long, while the fruits and nuts mix nicely together with the leather; then a final touch of chocolate comes slowly forward, humm  

    Comments: a realy very nice whisky!
