Whisky Reviews for Imperial 1995 SV

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.00 points

  1. wheatfield scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Gold pour. Nose is a spiced peat, tinned stone fruits, vanilla custard. Mouth is a bit dry upfront, then all about the stone fruits (canned peaches), then a warming alcohol finish with spice and sharp peat. I enjoy this style as it's fruit-forward. Better than the ratings suggest, IMO.

    • Nose
      Rich honey, and very cereal and grainy. All great stuff. Some vanilla
      and cake frosting. Sweet lemon custard with a slight edge to it. A few
      drops of anise. Essence of summer flowers with a side of wild
      strawberries. (with water) Lots more sugary sweetness and buttery sweet
      cake frosting. Vanilla. Just a few echoes of the flowers and wax. Honey
      and almost sweet, 'yellow' thick bourbon.
    • Taste
      Thick and honeyed. No trend here. Rather rich and decadent. It's a very
      direct number. Sweet grainy cereal. More vanilla, floral wax, and the
      oak emerges at the mid-palate. It provides a quick check and some
      tartness before receding. Less fruit, some anise, cardamom, and
      graphite. (with water) Oak is diminished, while still providing a lemon
      zest and less sweet edge. Obvious honey, grainy toast.
    • Finish
      All the same satisfying notes, direct and to the point. Still very well
      balanced and hits the mark when you want something like this. Great
      stuff.
