Whisky Reviews for Imperial 1995 Arc
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.91 points
- Fruity, the bourbon barrel also gives off vanilla. Something grassy. Edelbitter.
- A very straightforward, no nonsense dram, but oh so good. Around 65 EUR,
but long gone.
What a wonderfully clean, creamy and fruity nose! Loads of citrus,
mostly oranges, but also banana and peach. Hard pineapple candy. Becomes more
and more exotic. Fresh and bright, without losing itself in complexity.
On the palate, it is very creamy and fruity as well. Peach and oranges
return, upholstered with lemon zest and liquorice. Slightly peppery. Some kinine. Tonic? Perfectly quaffable without
The long finish is a perfect continuation of the palate. Slightly drying
towards the end.
- This whisky has lots of vanilla in its nose as well as bananas, (pine)apples and peaches.So, a very nice nose!
The taste has a full, waxy body, is creamy, fruity. And my favourite part : the lemon-zest with liquorice and pepper!
The finish is long, clean, fresh with that lovely waxy aftertaste.
A perfect, clean Imperial.
Thanks for the tip, Menno!!
- Something interesting to discover, away from mainstream.
Thank you Whiskybase for the sample!
Vanilla, grassy and fruity notes plus a whiff of cardboard at first nosing. The aroma is light and quite simple but pleasant. The fruityness is real nice with mainly oranges.
Warming and very fruity, with mirabelle schnapps and some pepper. There is also toffee aroma and something reminding me of Schweppes Bitter Orange. Pleasant.
Long and good but a little cardboard is coming up.
