This new release from the Single Malts Of Scotland was distilled at the Imperial distillery, which closed its doors for ever in 1998. Since its closure, whiskies from this silent distillery have become increasingly rare and sought after. This bottling is a vatting of five casks that were matured for at least 28 years, yielding a total of 600 bottles. This whisky showcases the beautiful character of Imperial, with an aged quality accenting vanilla and succulent fruit.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose - Densely-packed aromas: the summer notes of green leaves and strawberry creams balance nicely with mustier notes of incense, thyme and archived books.
Palate - Soft-yet-succulent, bringing forth fruity lychee and watermelon. Aromatic myrrh and wood spice mingle with refreshing elder-flower cordial.
Finish - A whisper of grape, vanilla bean and dusty spice showcases the mature and layered character of the whisky.
