    Tasting note by Ruben Luyten, whiskynotes.be  (08.05.2014)

    Nose: nice entrance on aromatic orange peel, which unfolds towards tangerines and lime. Apples, mint. After a while also hints of marzipan and vanilla. Some honey. After some time it adds marshmallows and waxy notes as a bonus to an already convincing nose. Mouth: while you could say the nose showed a rather generic bourbonny Speyside profile, this definitely takes it up a notch. Sweet and rounded, with a slightly tropical side and plenty of fruit liqueurs. Coconut and pineapple, tangerine, pink grapefruit. Tinned apricots. These waxy notes again and a few gingery touches. Cinnamon. Maybe a chalky note. Lovely, and it goes down way too easily. Finish: medium long, still fruity with some green oak and a hint of fruit tea.

    Simply a very good Imperial and certainly the best 1995 I’ve had so far. On the palate this is really 90+ material. If only the nose were a little less predictable. 

    One of my favourite Asta Morris releases so far – recommended.

    Superb Imperial, I did not expect that. The best I have ever tasted.
    • Nose
      From the first second, the nose is full of sights. It is thick, greedy, on the baked cake, the almond cake, a little wax, and all balanced by a nice freshness of fruit (cherry plum, fresh plum), and citrus zest
    • Taste
      Creamy texture, good sugar balance. Alcohol well integrated. We find here more honey, wax than nose, and also cooked cake, yellow fruits, citrus zest and dried flowers. Finely salted touch
    • Finish
      Long, on yellow fruits, wax, honey, heather, a little white pepper

    Color gold

    Nose: starts very fruity, passion fruit, slightly alcoholic, grassy, ​​wax

    Mouth: also here a great basket of fruit, strong onset, but not unpleasantly alcoholic, very refreshing, also here the wax

    Finish: After a long time, after which the wax disappears, the fruits remain in the mouth for quite a long time, before they slowly make their way from the field

    Conclusion: Blind I would probably have typed on a Clynelish, great fresh malt without any mustiness with beautiful fruit and waxy notes, a fine example of why we Imperial will sooner or later miss
