Imperial 1996

Imperial 1996

Official bottling
Single malt - Speyside
Yellow gold
43% ABV

Nose: Cola nuts, lemon zest, thyme, vanilla, raisins, hints of grass. 
Mouthfeel: Light body, slippery, watery, loose. 
Tasting:  Bitter sweet. Cola nuts, cookie dough, grass, thyme, plums, hints of chocolate . 
Finish: Medium. Cookie dough, coffee, chocolate, plums. 


A rarity from the closed Imperial distillery! This is a 18 or 19 year old distilled shortly before the distillery closed. It's rather good, with the usual cookie dough and gentle vanilla notes wreathed in cola nuts and grassy herbal notes. Good, but alas, not great.


I like this.
