- Nose little fresh citrus (zest of lime), also slightly floral (nice fresh scented flowers field, rose petals), afterwards comes some sweet fruit: cherry, peach, (still green) banana, honey melon Taste in the mouth immediately a creamy or oily filling feeling (waxy?), pleasantly sweet towards caramel, bit of a 'bite' with woodtests (dry), slightly spicy and also some citrus in the distance (stays with the lime ) Finish in the aftertaste, he becomes slightly spicier (spicier?) and slightly drier (wood keys), but at the same time the fresh lime remains
- Blind tasting. The most spiced Imperial of this three.
Later compared with Imperial 1995 SV 50288+50289 and Imperial 1981 DL 25 yrs.
Wax, fruity - pine apple, syrup and nuts.
Spices, herbs, fruity, pastry, syrup, some coffee. Curd cheese and even some meaty tones. ++
Vanilla, wax, some smoke, spices - some pepper and paprika.
- What a great whisky. Pity the distillery was demolished
Fine fragrance which is considered a mixture of watermelons,
Vegetables, green leaves and candle wax could describe.
Sounds a bit strange, but it's alright.
Quite fresh and fruity and sweet over time.
With more aromas of honey, lemons and green apples.
The body is extremely oily: it forms nicely
embossed (gothic) stained glass windows (used was a Glencairn
Glass). In the beginning gentle, sweet and waxy taste, the
then a very gentle and pleasant peppery woody spicy
developed. Vegetable notes, malt and vanilla follow. Very
late maybe something like gum (the yellow Wrigleys).
Warming and honeyed finish with a nice spice.
- It's a decent and flawless speyside whisky, but I don't find it stellar. 86/87
autumn meadow, limestone, lime, williams pear, unripe peach, an old boskoop's skin, vanilla, cream, icing sugar, beeswax, porridge, a hint of smoke, a touch of artisan mustard, some white pepper, some ginger, some pencil shavings.
sherbety on sweet and sour fruits, mainly the unripe peach, a drop of acacia honey is adding sweetness, white pepper.
medium length on white pepper, hay, honey, beeswax and a little smoke.
- Every new bottling in this range seems to be more creamy and waxy. This is also the most mature and smoothest one so far.
Honey, creamy caramel, dried apricot, vanilla, orange, beeswax and lime. A whiff of sauerkraut.
Honey, creamy caramel, vanilla, orange, almond and a little pepper.
Caramel, smoke, honey, orange and beeswax.
- Better than the last one, more creamy beautifull! Great stuff for this price!
